Genuinely one of the best steaks I have ever eaten - cooked to perfection and melts in the mouth. Lovely service and comfortable environment make this perfect for couples or groups.

Nice place, great atmosphere. Good food. Well with a reservation and a visit. The decor is nice, the staff lovely and the menu is great, although you need to like lobster or steak.

Restaurant, food and service were all good - server friendly but had some difficulty communicating which was ok in the end. Great decor and we loved the location, too.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

The restaurant does not have a dress code, but it is a nice restaurant, so let would think shoes would be more appropriate

It's very casual. You would be fine to go in trainers.

Check out their online site. There is an English language link! The menu is basically "surf and turf" = lobster and steak! There are also pictures showing the interior. You can make reservations online or by telephoning.
