“NIche Restaurant but WOW It Delivers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Stumbled on this one recently but what a formula. They serve only steak and lobster (or a combo) but the fillest are like velvet and accompanied by fries and salad. Brwead to start costs c.€2 but its sooooooo tasty with olive oil and balsamic... my mouth is watering just thinking about it again!!!! Nice wine list and a really helpful, knowledgeable and passionate staff all add up to a great meal out. This is a really popular spot so booking in advance is a good idea.

“Fabulous food, atmosphere and staff - we'll be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012 via mobile

We found this restaurant on an Amsterdam insider's guide and after reading mainly positive reviews on trip advisor chanced it. We were not disappointed. The staff were so charming and spoke perfect English. The steak which is done in the French way (ie. If you want rare say medium rare, if you want medium say medium well done) was so tender it melted in the mouth. The chips and salad were delicious. The decor is slightly bizarre as a mural on the ceiling or a woman eating an apple dominates but with the green velvet booths and black tables it kind of works. The best thing was the price, only €60 for 2 with wine and pudding. A real Amsterdam gem.

“Mediocre at best...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012 via mobile

Food was great, but the service and atmosphere left a lot to be desired. The restaurant was overcrowed and didn't seem clean. Just getting rid of one 2-top table would help a lot! The table (and staff) could use fresh linens. Half our silverware was spotty and one still had its last meal on it. the staff was friendly, but 1hr after opening looked a mess. I'm not talking about hair and what-not. Their uniforms were disgusting. The floor staffs clothg was covered in stains and really brought things down a notch. The people were great, but seeing a big sauce stain on a shirt wasn't pleasant. I would look for other restaurants for the money...

Absolutely lovely restaurant on one of Amsterdam's central canals. The atmosphere was great and the food just to die for. Special thanks to our wonderful waitress Ilze, who was very kind and attentive.
