Steak meat rib eye all of them available. Different size and weight of meat portion with plenty choice of beef. Tables not very big but comfortable.

Visited this restaurant together and by a recommendation of a friend who is from Rotterdam. One of the best steaks i have ever had...and i am picky about my meat:) Nice and relaxed atmosphere, attentive service makes the visit there even more pleasurable. Yet the jewel is still and will be the steak!

First of all I would like to point out the flexibility of the business that helped us find a table for 4 while the reservation was for 2. Friendly staff eager to assist. You can taste high quality food (especially meats) without paying a fortune.Very good choice of Argentinian wines. I would definetively recommend it.

One of the best steaks I ever had, straight from the barbecue. Really good. Fries were good too and salad as well. Wine was ok - nothing special but good enough. Busy place but we did not have to wait long. Only thing: the place is really filled with smoke. As all steaks are served from the barbecue and on... More

The quality of the food is reason good enough to visit Rotterdam. Will definitely return. Menu offers a wide variety of classical meat based dishes, and plenty side dishes for everyone to find something they like.

The evening I went here I was really in the mood for a quiet dinner, some steak and a glass of red. The other reviews said that's what I'd get there and they were right. A great meal in the city of Rotterdam.

The steak was excellent, I had a rump steak cooked medium rare and the cooking and taste was good. The side dishes were a little bland. The service was quite poor: we waited a lot longer for a table than we had been told when we arrived, the food was very slow to arrive and the order was missing several... More
