“Great steak”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Dined here on a rainy lunch-time in Amsterdam. The service was pretty good, and we were looked after. Steaks were well-cooked and the meat seemed to be good quality, though the price did seem a little higher than the food warranted.

The decor however was tired, and the cow-hides hung up on the walls did not add anything to the experience. The manager, a nice chap from Belgium, chatted with us for a while, but I sensed a look of resignation at how quiet his restaurant was on a Saturday lunchtime.

The atmosphere and music let this place down and detracted from the experience, but the food was really good, and deserves credit.

“Rain check please!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

4 adults on a rainy July midweek night for a later-than-average dinner but well before closing- time. Restaurant almost empty, staff idling. No smiles. No welcome. We felt like a nuisance. Hadn't it been for the rain we would have turned around at the doorstep. Extreme slow and almost hostile service. And no, we were neither loud nor drunk! Juicy ribs. Seasonable prices. Come on, try better next time!

“Warm welcome - cold plates”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

I last came here about two years ago and complained to the owner that he was serving hot food on cold plates. He just shrugged and said nobody else had complained. Restraunters really should be grateful for feedback from customers - it helps them improve, grow and hopefully prosper. The food was just okay and the prices were acceptable. However, we won't be making a third visit.

“Loved it :-)”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

Ate here yesterday - lovely atmosphere - the owner is incredibly welcoming and helpful - great service!

I had a tuna steak, my friend had the t bone steak - both were cooked beautifully, with delicious sauces and side dishes - they were of excellent quality - and whilst the t bone was expensive (€22) - it was also ENORMOUS!!! So it was actually great value for money!

Wine and beer wasn't the cheapest, but it wasn't the most expensive.

We both had the apple pie for desert which was also yum.

For the two mains (one of which was the huge t bone) and two deserts and 3 drinks, came to €64 - so not too expensive.

We'll be going back before we leave!
