it was late, we were hungry, we'd run the gauntlet of food pimps in the alley behind the leidseplein and finally plunked down at a wonky table at the edge of chicano's. As we waited an inordinately long time for the plate of fajitas, we munched on the their version of nachos (bottom of the bag broken doritos with pots of decent guacamole & something more like thai sweet chili sauce but called salsa.... the fajitas came sizzling hot, lots of peppers and onions and tender seared steak. Much too much for the miserable pair of cold tortillas cowering on the plate with some cheese. As we ate, the food pimp hustled customers next to us while we were deafened by an accordion busker who seemed to want to be paid to leave....33 euro for this 'meal'

the most plain tasting watered down nastiest meal Iv ever had with the worse service. Also we waited nearly an hour for our food and the only reason we went in there was because we was starving! and the promotor/man with the pony tail encouraging people to come inside was so sweet and friendly

The food tasted okay and was okay priced. I wouldnt recommend it, its nothing special but if you want to eat and arent too fussed I would try here.

On the night I went it was empty (not a good sign as all the other restaurants all had people eating at them) and the waiters were more interested in flirting with each other and forcing people into the restaurant then serving.

We visited this restaurant on the first night of our holiday - we were approached by a very pushy guy who took cards from other places out of my hand and herded us in toward the restaurant - as we were hungry and worn out from walking all day, we went in fairly willingly.
We sat down and it took a fair while for someone to take our order - we both ordered drinks and steak and chips.
The meal arrived - and we were both utterly disappointed - the steak was no bigger than a chicken nugget and was incredibly bland. Our drinks did not arrive until half way through the meal - and this was only after we reminded the waiter we had ordered them some time ago. When the drinks arrived the wine tasted like pure vinegar !
We had to ask for the bill several times before I ended up giving the money to a waiter and leaving .
To top this off - the ambiance was awful due to the constant bickering of the staff that could be overheard.

Friendly staff but the food was horrible. We ordered Spagetthi arrabiata but it turned out only a spagetthi mixed with tomato sauce without any meat. The portion is small and we waited very long for the food.
