I do not recommend this restaurant not even for my enemies. Food was awful and it took forever to get it. Prawns were so so bad. Steak was bad. Stay as far as possible!!!

The place was ok, nice and cosy. Service was also ok, the staff was friendly. Bathroom was clean, which is for me very important.
Our meal tasted very good, it was well prepared and came quite fast. We received bread and some garlic pasta at the beginning and found those on the bill when we paid (they are usually free, but were just a few euros, they tasted good and we were hungry, so that was fine). Overall I think the place is ok and our bill was quite decent, given the location and the fact that we paid 50% more in a different small town near Amsterdam, for a similar dinner.

Soggy salad. Cheap cuts of steak.

After reading the reviews we went in. We ordered quickly and were offered bread with our meal. The bread arrived and was stale but did have a nice garlic butter accompaniment. The daily deal that was advertised was a small steak which looked good at first glance but after closer inspection, was full of fat. I've been and had Argentinean steak before but this fell well short. The salad was soggy.. the best part were the chips/frites/fries. Look around as there are options.

From entry we should have known as a cat was roaming around. Not sure the hostess washed her hands before picking up the cat and shoving him towards the kitchen.
The food was priced well but quality and service were poor.
The dry bread was served the same time as our steak dinners. My medium steak was more than well done. The salad was soggy.
