I visited this restaurant in Feb-17 with some friends as we fancied some steak for dinner, and it was one of the first places we walked past. It wasn't the most enjoyable of meals but I'll try to stick to facts in this review and leave emotions aside. When we entered we were promptly seated on the table right in... More

I went to dinner with my wife. The restaurant was half full at 15:00. We ordered full meal and wine. The glasses which came with the bottle of water were dirty. Not a nice start to begin with. The sausage for a starter arrived scorched as so the over done fillet steak. The "salad" on the plate was a single... More

Lunch time deal of grilled chicken, BBQ sauce, fries and a salad at €11.50 was a great deal and the food was 10/10! Would recommend to all

They have a big advertisement at the entrance that says "15 euros for a steak chicken filet ribs + salad and fries". They then gave me a plate with a super small slice of beef half slice of chicken breast full of ketchup( without any requests). Complained to the waiter and he told me I was right but did not...

Apart from the location (at the city's center) there is nothing that stands out from the average argetinian restaurant. Normal food, normal service.

The best meal we had during our short stay in Amsterdam. Amazing food, great quality, perfect service. The waiters were very helpful and attentive, one even helped us by recommending local bars (which we went to and it was amazing!). I can't fault this restaurant, would recommend to anyone who doesn't mind paying a little extra for a delicious meal!

My friends and I had lunch yesterday here. There is a lot of choice in Amsterdam central but the restaurant looked cozy and welcoming. We were concerned about how juicy or dry our ribs might be and when we got them we were amazed how delicious and succulent they were. Very enjoyable meal

Arrogant waiter. Extolled the benefits of Argentinian beef (cattle being allowed to roam free on flat plains of the pampas....) only to receive a delivery of Uruguayan beef while we were there!!!! Now, there's nothing wrong with Uruguayan beef but the poor animal that died to produce our steaks died in vain. I had 225g and husband had 300g, both... More
