Great food and the useful option of choosing the meat's portion size (3 sizes). The meat was made to order perfectly. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Will dine here again.

For excellent steaks: El Gaucho in Leiden. The meat is super tasty and cooked to perfection. The Argentinian Malbec ideally accompanies the steaks.

Good food. Good quality and good taste but in our opinion all steaks we ordered were undercooked. Well done looked as medium and medium rare was just as rare.

The food was ok. I left stinking of it though as its all cooked in an open plan area. Staff were attentive enough. Its not cheap so don't expect much change from 100 euros if you're paying for two, with wine.
