Nice place with great location. Service was very good and wine nice. Steak was-- at best-- very average. Not really deserving of being called "Argentinean"

Whilst visiting the Amersfoort Jazz Festival, we came across this relatively small restaurant. We were able to get a table without a reservation. The staff were all friendly & the premises very clean. We just had steaks which were cooked to perfection! The chef came into the restaurant and spoke to all of the people seated. What a pleasant chap!... More

The owner came to our table to chat and check to see if everything was to our satisfaction, which often doesn't happen. You can also have a smaller portion of beef if the regular size... More

We have been there with a group of 18 people. We reservated a place to be sure to get some seats. The waitress was very friendly and did a great job. The Steaks were absolute delicious and also the starters with the special sauce. The only downside was that some of the steaks were not grilled/roasted as ordered. I can... More
