We had a good experience in this restaurant especially due to the combination of good service and good food. The steak was nice and my friend who ordered ribs also said it was perfect. Good place for a night out.

Great place because was opened at 11 pm on a Wednesday night (all restaurants were closed in the area). I had Argentina tapas and beer for 17€. Service was ok and food too.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
