We found this place after getting very lost trying to find Rembrant square. It's quite a small restaurant (hence the title of the review). I think we got in just in time to get a table straight away, at about 7.30pm as soon after people were having to wait at the bar for a table to become available. My husband... More

So looking for a "good" restaurant when you are in the tourist trap zones of central Amsterdam can be quite hard, not least when its like 11:00 at night!

Nice and big portions combined with a friendly staff. Worth to go. Nice ribs and with fries, combined with garlic butter and bread. Nice Sunday lunch.

The plates are huge. You get a LOT of food. Meat is wonderful. Ok prices. Service is ok, but we needed to wait a long time for them to come. So our visit took ages. Their coffee is lovely.

I took a medium steak and it was excellent. Ambient is really nice and the location close to vibrant Rembrandtplein is a plus. Price was fair and affordable. Next time when I'm in Amsterdam I'm definitely visiting this place again.

My husband and I discovered this by walking around the Rembrandtplein. He loved their ribs! The food is large portions and the meats are cooked to perfection. Reasonably priced wine and food.
