I just happened upon this gem while wandering from my hotel looking for a place to eat thatbwascaway from the busy streets on a sunny Sunday evening The food was excellent. I ordered a sirloin steak that was tender and delicious. I can only imagine how wonderful the filet would have been. The owner was very attentive and proud of... More

I've had dinner in this Argentinian restaurant with friends. It seemed to be very good on TripAdvisor, but it was nothing special. The place looks old and not very clean. We waited a lot to be served by two people who were eating pizza while working. I appreciated the parrillada meat mix.

If you want to eat a good meat in the center of Amsterdam this is your place. The best one is the "bife de lomo", really tasty meat. The service has been great too. I would recommend it.

What can I say. Me and my husbend both had a pepper steak at La Parillada and loved it. This is not a gourmet restaurant but if you are hungry for a good steak then I recommend this restaurant.

Stopped in after visiting the Rijksmuseum. Had the place to myself. Lunch special was extremely tasty. Included tomorrow soup, steak, fries and ice cream for only 13.50 euros. Steak was perfectly cooked and tender, sadly a rarity in my travels. Background music was perfect for relaxing and getting away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. I'll have to come... More

Encouraged by the good reviews we went here expecting a excellent meal. The chef must have been out, or people have been overly kind reviewing this place. It's best enjoyed tipsy I would think. The steaks and chips were reasonable quality but everything else was really mediocre to poor; the veal, corn and chimchirri sauce were horrendous. The waiters were... More

It is located in a quiet street near Rembrandt Square. The house specialty is the Parillada - it's a mixed grill of different meats served in a warming mini-grill with a side of traditional chimichurri sauce. The meats are tender and delicious just as I remember on my trip to Argentina! The barbecue ribs and lasagna are also good. Highly... More
