Best service ever. Our waiter, Kris, from Hungary, was fantastic! So patient and nice. Explained everything. When he brought our steak, it was not what we intended to order. No problem. He took it back and got us what we intended to order. It was...More

If you walk along Damstraat, you'll see A LOT of Argentinian places. This place might be pricier compared to others but it's definitely worth it. It was one of the best meals we had in Amsterdam. My husband ordered the steak and it was cooked...More
