We visited this place for dinner and were satisfied with the meat. The waiter however was really unfriendly and did not make us enjoy our time. I am sure there are other places in Amsterdam with great food/meat and a better service.

The ambience of the inside is amazing but unfortunately we couldn't stay inside because we had a baby with us. Then they kindly prepare a table for 6 at outside. The meat, potato,beer and salad was delicious. They are very interested with us. Definitely recommended!
