Ate here as a couple last weekend, food was ok, service very friendly but a bit patchy, the thing to be wary of in Amsterdam with steakhouses is that they lure you in with cheap prices advertised outside but when you're in they're reluctant to talk about them and if you press you find they're actually just very small portions, steaks were nice but not really anything to write home about for the price, stick to Gauchos or Cau

I concur with the other reviewers: relaxed atmosphere, good food, steak cooked perfectly as ordered. I had the house wine, which could have been better, but not greatly concerning. The only thing I would improve on is the price, but what can you do?

Thank you for visiting Argentinos San Thomas -MG in Amsterdam and for taking time to write your review about us.
About the price, you ask us what we can do, Honestly I like to till you that we are using just fresh argentinian meat, and that's not cheep. since three years we didn't change our prices but the price of the fresh meat increased too much (15% - 20%) in three years. We used only qualty for example our coffee is illy the pric of it threefold of normal coffee.
There are many Grill Restaurants in downtown Amsterdam using frozen meat from Brazil or Uruguay, that's too cheep In comparison with fresh argentinian meat.
I promise you at the first chance to decrease the price, we will do.
our strategy, top quality to the fair price.
We hope to see you again soon!
Thank you again !

Great job...steak fries done to perfection. Rib Eye was ordered medium rare and that's just how it came. Decent wine list and overall prices are normal for Amsterdam. Staff friendly and just get the job done. I will be back....this week even.

Very nice restaurant and really good steaks. It's very relaxed and service is reasonably quick. Some of the waiters give you the impression they are clueless and not sure which tables they are working. We got wrong food delivered as did a number of other tables but it didn't really take from the night

Our meal here was as good as any we had in Amsterdam in five days, yet we only went in as it was the first restaurant we came across after leaving the Central Station on the way to our hotel. The service was very pleasant, and the steaks were cooked perfectly. The interior was atmospheric, with quite subdued lighting, and it was a nice touch that, as I was looking at my street map for the route to our hotel, one of the staff sprang forward with a torch.
