Great place with good steaks and great staff. The "CAUGIRLS" - what's printed on their uniforms - are attentive and want to assist you. I went twice on this trip to Amsterdam. I decided to have a burger the second time and I was not disappointed. The lighting is a little dark so be prepared but the outdoor scene makes up for this.

Very rude staff. All food was very bland when we explained to the staff they were extreamily rude. Half of our meal didnt come out untill we had already eaten the first half and when we explained to the waitress we no longer wanted the rest as we had already eaten she rolled her eyes! The manager kept saying ‘this is what all you english people are like’ when we complained! Shocking.

Food and service was amazing! Steaks were reasonably priced a little bit on the high side but it really is good value for money! For a meal that good in the center of the city I didn't mind paying a little bit extra. The polish waiter (I didn't catch his name) was great and made the experience even better!

Was there by myself on a Saturday night (booked online). Very approachable and friendly staff, they’ll also give you suggestions on the choices of food if u needed.
Food - Ordered a rump steak and it was pretty tough, had to summon my strength to cut through it, so I probably should have gone for medium rare instead of medium. The local beer was decent though. Also the place has a good vibe, would recommend sitting upstairs.

Steak was excellent. The service was a little hurried and the waiter was unclear in communicating problems with what was available on the starters section of the menu.

The food was delicious and the service was polite, however there was a small problem with our receipt. Despite not ordering any drinks, water was brought to our table and poured into glasses. We assumed this to be 'on the house', as we had not requested it. At the end of the meal, a rather expensive bottle of water (5€<) appeared on our bill. The item was removed from the total price upon complaint, but a bad impression remains.

The location was great, but the food was moderate. Our steak was over cooked although we specified medium. This place seems to be in high demand, so perhaps it was just an off night.

The food was really good, especially for being right in the middle of the tourist trap. The service is ok and a little on the slower side. The sticky wings and the shrimp chicharon are a must for appetizers. For dinner I always go with the chicken Caesar salad and the Fiancé goes for the filet and chips with a side of peppercorn sauce. Over all the food is great.

Mooie locatie, goed eten, goed vlees en mooie porties! echter het personeel spreek geen fatsoenlijk Nederlands en is erg opdringerig. we konden amper op de kaart kijken, of de bediening was al 3 keer langsgekomen om te vragen of wij al een keuze hadden kunnen maken.
