“fine meats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

generally i don't like places so turistic and kitsch, but I must say that in this place you can eat a really good and fresh meat, and in the kitchen you feel that there is a real Argentine chef. I believe that in a very touristy area as it is the one near the station, it is very difficult to find better. Friendly and polite staff.

“Delicious food in nice cozy surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Went to Argentinos San Thomas with a couple of friends to have steaks. The service was good and friendly staff, and the food was absolutely great. Furthermore, the place is very cozy. We all hope to come here again when we visit Amsterdam next time, and can only warmly recommend this restaurant!

“Great service, poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

The staff here I so lovely that I felt bad about complaining! After waiting 45 mins for my starter in a half empty restaurant- the escargot turned out to be 7 mussels stuffed into snail shells at £10... Very cheeky!

Dear Ms Tracy,

Thank you for taking time to write your review about our restaurant.
I disagree with your review about the escargot
first : we serve just 6 pieces of high quality escargot.
second : our price is € 10,75.
of course is not possible to put the mussels in the place of snailes, as a size also is not our strategy to work, we very famous restaurant in Amsterdam which used very high quality ingredients.

Fantastic Steaks, grilled to perfection, 3 choices of side dishes and 3 different home-made steak sauces. Restaurant looked very busy.(good sign) Professional, very good service. Perfect experience. I can really reccomend to every one.

“Good but expensive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had 3 sirloins and the meat was really tender.
The service was quite poor, we felt like we disturbed the waiters each time we reminded them we were here... It took 1h45 just for 3 dishes and 3 coffees. Everything else was extra, the potato and the sauce. We paid 105€ with our drinks. Some customers left after the appetizers and didn't pay for the main dishes that were currently being cooked said the owner. The customers left some of their belongings so had to come back. The waiter called the police so they were arguing all along in front of all the customers, very annoying! The reason why the service was really slow is because they own a second restaurant, italian food so they share the same kitchen and... waiters! The neighboorhood was really nice and animated. Nice area to hang out!
