Very cheap price compared to other restaurants, but very, very delicious. We got the Santa Maria which includes fries, salad, spare ribs, rump steak. Excellent friendly service and not pushy at all. Great recommendation.

We revisited this place after being here in 2016, unfortunately the restaurant has decreased in quality for two main reasons: 1) non-transparent tourist rip off behaviour: The restaurant offers bread with butter which is 2,50€; however if you order as 2 persons, the cost will...be 5,00€ without further explanation and what you receive is actually 1 small bread roll from the convienience store per person. 2) bad service: We waited one hour for our finished dishes to be cleaned off the table. Also, the waiters changed during our stay and a carafe of wine was forgotten because no communication took place. This carafe nevertheless occured on the bill afterwards and had to be declined by me. We were offered a drink on the house for the inconvinience but this item was also forgotten and never served. We left after waiting another half an hour. Overall, we would not recommend to come here. Although the expensive food is still good, this place has become more or less a tourist trap.More

Well, I dont recommend this place. It’s argentinan restaurant managed by arabic people (¿?). During all the dinner the music (regueaton) it was too loud. Service correct but don’t expect good quality in the food. Any other option is better

We sat down at the table and ordered drinks. A couple of us went to the toilet and they came back complaining at the smell of them and how bad the hygiene was. I tried my beer which was terrible. The worst pint of Heineken...I have had in Amsterdam, it was flat and had almost a wine taste to it. I then visited the rest rooms. When I got back to the table I agreed with the rest of our group not to order food due to the cleanliness of the toilets and the smell. The owner apparently tutted as we walked by however, I didn't hear this but some of our group did.More

Nice ambiance, friendly server and great dining experience. Enjoyed a steak and ribs combo, my partner had the grilled chicken. Love the cowhide chairs and wall decos

We came across this restaurant just wandering down the road and got talking to our waiter Bacci who was lovely! Really nice meal and enjoyed sitting outside watching the world go by and Bacci was very attentive. Only thing we would have liked to have...known was the wine on offers which we discovered after we'd ordered our beersMore

We could eat at 4pm. The staff is really nice. The meat and the vegetable were excellent and they offered the coffee.

Where do I start. The hygiene is questionable. Not only was the food tough & chewy, but they also messed up our order! No apologies, very stubborn. I asked to speak to whoever’s in charge. He refused to speak with me. Also nothing about this...place is Argentinian. Definitely in my top 3 worst restaurants. Avoid it!More

We should have been alerted when the waitress asked if we wanted drinks when we arrived but then proceeded to just walk away without taking our order. When we did receive our drinks we queried whether a mistake had been made because we couldn’t believe...circa 300 ml beers were actually “medium” - particularly at the prices charged on the menu. The response was nothing short of surly. When our meals arrived I complained about my steak which was the most pathetic cut of meat I’ve ever seen served at a restaurant (more fit for pet food). The owner didn’t seem to care - only stating that it had been cooked as I requested it (hardly the point). We hurriedly finished our meals as we no longer felt welcome when I made the mistake of using the restroom before we left. If I had seen the hygiene standard I would never have eaten my “meal”. Dine here if you wish - but you’ve been warned!More
