Avoid at all costs!!!. Service is horrible, staff is unorganised, makes 5 mistakes in one order and extremely rude. Orders are more than 40 mins late. Staff is soooo rude and make u feel NOT welcome. Choose something else, it cant be worse than that

I've been to this place twice now since being in Amsterdam. It's a rare thing to find such good pizza- tasty ingredients. The location is good, out of the craziness of the center. One thing that needs improving is the lighting, very poor....

If you're looking for somewhere quick and cheap to eat this is the perfect place. But the service is awful, very unorganised staff, waiters don't know which table is theirs, being the wrong food to the wrong tables on each occasion until the find the right one! The waiters walk around you making you feel under pressure to pick what... More

We came in late in a Monday and the food was great it tasted very fresh and home made. We loved everything we ordered: chicken quesadilla, beef empanadas. There is room for improvement on the tomato soup but it was still very nice and warm. Overall great experience.

The food was great but it took like 40 minutes to bring our order. They go to another restaurant for the pizza. Any way it tasted good.

Just been here tonight! From the front I was quite hesitant. However as two friends trying to do lots of things we're on a bit of a budget for food and in this area this was one of the cheaper places. Yet, even though cheaper the food was up to standard tasting delicious with generous portions! I got the BBQ... More

The atmosphere and staff were great but however the food was not too special. My friend got a great deal for unlimited ribs and fries but wasn't too great. The creamy chicken pasta I got was nice though so overall not too bad!

Where to begin with this review, well we were convinced to eat here by the PR outside who in my opinion needs a pay rise as he seemed to be the only one with and decent communication skills! In list format here's all the problems we dealt with; Waiter although lovely couldn't speak hardly any English. Took half the drinks... More

Came into the restaurant as the guy outside made a good sale however I wish I walked back out. I ordered the steak with a free drink. The steak was bland and thin, had no seasoning what so ever. I had to put copious amounts of pepper on. The customer service was even worse. The woman who seemed to be... More
