“Came back a second night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Our reservation was at 7 o'clock and we had the table for the night, a nice relaxing dinner! The lobster and beef with Bearnaise sauce were delicious! Dinner came with a side salad and french fries with mayo. We also enjoyed Chef's choice for dessert, a sampling of four sweets. If traveling to Amsterdam soon, make your reservation now!

We chose to go to red following a reccomendation from a friend. it was excellent, the meat was perfectly cooked and the quality of the beef was sublime. the lobster was excellent also, and the sauce was out of this worl. a great aervice and a great experience. full meal for 2 including a bottle of wine and both having lobster as a starter and beef as the main cost us eur 104. the design of the restaurant is awesome also. a great place!

“Great food with a couple of trivial issues.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

A lobster starter and a rare tournedo for main. Both great, tasted fantastic - the steak was cooked perfectly for me.

Bread ordered and not delivered (but charged). The staff were generally perfect and attentive and this was likely an oversight. It seemed as though more than one member of waiting staff was attending to our table so possibly the cause of confusion.

The restaurant was too hot.

The chips/frites were not what I expected (which was thin, crisp French-fries) but were served thick-cut chips (I think from frozen).

The dessert menu on the website was different to the menu provided in the restaurant (not a biggy, just detail).

e100 for two with drinks.

“Feel like lobster or tournedos?!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

This cozy and funky restaurant only serves 2 things.. Lobster and tournedos, but they do it damn good. The steamed lobster with either beure blanc or mayo is served perfectly each time and the tournedos melts on your tongue. Served together with a small tasty salad and excellent fries with homemade mayo. Staff friendly and attentive.. Reservations recommended as the place is always buzzing and busy.

“Fantastic steak and lobster”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We discovered Red by chance and are very pleased we did! A very small menu - basically lobster or steak or surf and turf- but impeccably cooked and served with a simple salad and chips with mayo. A delicious selection of fresh bread is the only 'starter' and there's a small dessert menu, the only one to go for is le grand dessert, a beautifully presented and delicious selection of sorbet, cheesecake, mousse and tiramisu. And to top it off the restaurant is in a lovely spot right by one of the canals. Highly recommended - excellent cooking, completely unpretentious and very good value.
