Arrogant waiter. Extolled the benefits of Argentinian beef (cattle being allowed to roam free on flat plains of the pampas....) only to receive a delivery of Uruguayan beef while we were there!!!! Now, there's nothing wrong with Uruguayan beef but the poor animal that died to produce our steaks died in vain. I had 225g and husband had 300g, both... More

We shared a side and chips with another couple and the quality of the food was exceptional with the steaks being cooked on an open grill. We had 2 drinks which were... More

Visited recently and had a starter and the 15 euro chicken steak and ribs. Portion size was ok, starter was the best, Argentinian sausages! For the price i think its not ad at all. Server was very quick and efficient. The review that says MacDonalds is better is very unfair. I'd go again, the price was right and you can... More

We were undecided between this restaurant and rachos down the street, wish I'd have read trip advisor and picked Rancho's. The mixed grill offer appealed to us but when it came the meat portions were small, child size portions and the plate filled out with salad. Was a shame because all the meat was cooked well and tasty enough, but... More

A very arrogant waiter who ignored my allergy and when I told him the dish contain my allergen, despite promising it shouldn't, he just laughed. If you have any allergies - stay away.

Im very dissapointed of myself that I didnt check in tripadvisor about this "restaurant" it was our worst culinary experience while staying in Amsterdam/ We came to the restaurant where there were no free tables on the entrance so we got a table in the second floor. After 10 minutes we stayed alone and nobody came to ask even if... More
