Lunch time deal of grilled chicken, BBQ sauce, fries and a salad at €11.50 was a great deal and the food was 10/10! Would recommend to all

They have a big advertisement at the entrance that says "15 euros for a steak chicken filet ribs + salad and fries". They then gave me a plate with a super small slice of beef half slice of chicken breast full of ketchup( without any requests). Complained to the waiter and he told me I was right but did not...

Apart from the location (at the city's center) there is nothing that stands out from the average argetinian restaurant. Normal food, normal service.

The best meal we had during our short stay in Amsterdam. Amazing food, great quality, perfect service. The waiters were very helpful and attentive, one even helped us by recommending local bars (which we went to and it was amazing!). I can't fault this restaurant, would recommend to anyone who doesn't mind paying a little extra for a delicious meal!

My friends and I had lunch yesterday here. There is a lot of choice in Amsterdam central but the restaurant looked cozy and welcoming. We were concerned about how juicy or dry our ribs might be and when we got them we were amazed how delicious and succulent they were. Very enjoyable meal

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

On the recommendation of the hotel we visited el torado. Steaks vary from €20 to €200 (yes really) and that is for just the steak and no sides. 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
