We were here for a work dinner and got some shared starters. After that we could chose a burger, steak or fish. I had the steak which was very delicious and prepared very well. Service was friendly as well.

Best bar in Amsterdam by far! Local people, great food and environment. If you are looking for a high end place out of tourist area this is definitely a place to go! Prices follows the comments above, but not far from other areas in Amsterdam.

I visited this restaurant with a friend. We both had entrecote steaks, which were truly excellent. Friendly, busy atmosphere. Great service. I would definitely visit this restaurant again

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
