    Service was decent and food was good quality with generous portions - plenty of options for steak and/or veggie courses. Would go back again when I’m in need of a steak

    I was expecting much more when we arrived at Formosa. There is nothing special about the interior or the exterior or its location. The service was excellent. The food was good, and the steak was prepared as each of indicated our preference. However, the steak was a bit sinewy. It wasn’t difficult to chew, though, and it tasted great from the grill. I do not know for certain, but I’m guessing we could have had a similar dining experience in any of the Argentine steak restaurants in Amsterdam. This was our first experience eating at an Argentine steak restaurant in Amsterdam, and it will probably be our last…nothing against Formosa…just not our cup of tea.

    Great little place in the center of Amsterdam. It looks rather small from outside - but the food was great and steaks were well prepared. Staff was really friendly and we enjoyed a good time over there.

    The steaks were cooked well and the sauces were very good, but the meat quality just doesn't compare to what is readily available in the US.

    7/10

    The food was really good but the service was really bad. You could hear from the staff when they were trying to make it through the evening. The restaurant was so busy and over booked. It took over 1,5 hour to get food and then the other was not right you really felt sorry for the staff in this situation.

About the restaurant

When you say Argentina, you say meat. Lots of meat. And in Formosa you get that. Rib-eye steak and much more. Tender meat for a tender price, value for money. A fine Argentinian restaurant in the heart of Amsterdam. Also a restaurant with a cozy atmosphere and friendly staff. A place where you can spend a great evening with friends or family.
