We liked this place. Great service with lots of protein on the menu and on the plate! Amsterdam is a bit expensive and some places skimp on delivery. We had a kebab and lamb cutlets which were bountiful and delicious...and fairly priced. Good beverage selections rounded things out.
A very good prospect for your pallet and wallet.

No tables were available outside upon arrival however the host sat us inside and told us within "2mins" a table would be ready. It was nearer to 10mins however we did not mind and it did not deter from the evening.

I ordered the chicken kebab (which was lovely) which came with a jacket potato (slightly colder than would have liked). My partner ordered the vegetarian dish of the day which turned out just to be a plate of vegetables - carrots, brocolli, onions, a tomato, lettuce. No real thought seemed to be put into and it was just gathering up any vegetables they had and trying to organise it on a plate. There was nothing wrong with the food itself and taste was fine however if you are a vegetarian there are severly limited options.

For reasons not apparent to us, Amsterdam is awash in self-styled Argentinian restaurants. While we are not experienced with this cuisine, this one satisfied. We ate lunch, where the food was good, including a very ample vegetable salad main course. At dinner we ordered the mixed grill for two and were presented with a very large array of meats, all tasty and well-cooked. Note that everything ordered is a la carte, including not only bread (common in Amsterdam) but also sauces for the meat.

This is very competitive area with numerous restaurants having outdoor seating all bunched together under big umbrellas. We were not disappointed we picked Formosa. George, our waiter was a real sweetheart and indulged this Canadian girl on vacation. He was an excellent salesman for his restaurant but with food this good he didnt have to work too hard. We both had tenderloin steaks and they were super! Done just as requested and the chimichurri sauce was a wonderful bonus. The side dishes are very generous so order one or two and share. Thanks again, George and everyone at Formosa Argentina!

Had an Angus steak which was very good.
Service was also good, but I feel the price was a bit too high.
That said, the quality is there so.. i guess it's ok =) .

Will come again for sure.
