Trust me when I say that this place is a major tourist trap, in the most touristy part of Amsterdam. The food is average and priced extremely high for what you get. The burgers does not come with salad or fries as most restaurants typically include. The steaks prices are astronomical and they also don't come with any sides. The Empanadas I had were very nice, however the burger was average at best, and the wedges were unpalatable being dense and tasteless. The restaurant was also noisy with loud music which makes talking difficult. Seating was cramped despite the place being large and over two levels. The menu was cheap looking on a piece of thin cardboard. If a restaurant is going to charge such high prices, everything else should match on par, and unfortunately in this place they don't.

Food was incredibly good and staff were attentive. They had no problem fitting a group of 15 in with a few hours notice. Good wine selection and menu choice. GooglePlace - February 2017

Let's get this straight, the food is decent, actually quite good. However, the ambience is terrible, dark, more club than restaurant and freezing air conditioning. The staff is helpful but trained to up sell you anything. Including 5,25euros for a bottle of water and 1,50euro for the sauce. I mean, I understand the restaurant policy but serving a 20euro steak alone on an empty plate and charge for literally everything else is not good. Ah, the music is so loud you almost cannot talk to each other. It's a shame because some potential is there. Borderline tourist trap. GooglePlace - January 2017

Steak and the mojitos are excellent. Risotto was undercooked and grainy, and the flavour was somewhat lacking. The peas in the mixed greens side dish was not cooked either. And the baked sweet potato was good. The service could be better (our waitress stuffed up our order and the table next to us) and even though we didn't feel like they deserved a tip, we obliged because they asked us to tip. In short: go the steak or go elsewhere. GooglePlace - January 2017

Very liked this place. Food is very good quality and service punctual and kind. Only problem is rest room at -1 floor. When you are at 2 floor this could make things difficult :) GooglePlace - January 2017
