“Fabulous ribs. What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The waitress was so lovely, the owner very attentive and the food was fantastic! They had a special menu - 10 euro 50 for meat, fries and salad, which was one of the cheapest we could find, and it was truly fantastic! I had the special with ribs - they were beautifully tender and had a lovely flavour as they were cooked with a delicious sauce. The chips were perfect. My husband had the mushroom tortellini which he enjoyed too. The music was good, service was excellent and the food and wine delicious. Would definitely suggest people eat here. One beer, two glasses of delicious red and two very generously sized main courses cost Euros 35. There was also complimentary breadstick and parsley butter. It was a delightful evening. Do visit the toilet - the impossibly steep stairs up one flight make a fun challenge.

“Just What We Were Looking For”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Spareribs was on the daily deal, 10.95 for Spareribs with Chips & Salad. You really get your money's worth. We wanted to have a nice dinner that wasn't expenisive and we were pleasantly surprised. The ribs were super tender with a tasty sauce. Finally a restaurant with proper chips: Big, thick and crispy. We also received a complementary drink at the end, very nice. Great dining environment. Everyone gets bread & garlicbutter as an appitizer free of charge. These guys understand what a good restaurant is all about. :)

“Really yummy steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Picked this restaurant as it stayed open late and seemed cosy and intimate. Which it was we got a window seat and laughed at drunk people going by. I had tortellini and my partner had a trio of steak it was really nice. The waitress was really lovely too.

“Just excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

Visited the place for a dinner with my wife. The food was delicios. The price reasonable. The only waiter was extremly polite... don't know if it was because we were the only customers at the time, but don't really care.
I can strongly recommens the place.

“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

Visited Amsterdam with boyfriend for a 3day break after New Year. Both in our 20's and trying to save on cash so we didn't eat out apart from our last night. Were staying just off Rembrandtplein and were wanting somewhere close by and reasonably priced so had a look on Tripadvisor app and came across this argentino-Italian restaurant so decided to give it a try.

We both shared antipasto to start and received a basket of bread and garlic butter. For main I had rumpsteak and my bf had tortellini. Both dishes were lovely! Was told that the steaks they cook in the restaurant are sourced from Argentina and you could tell. One of the best steaks I've had!

A shared starter, steak, pasta dish, 2glasses of wine and 2 bottles of beer came to under €60. Very reasonable for the quality of food we got and the tourist area that this is located.


Would definitely recommend!
