Probably the best spareribs in town

The spareribs were all tender and juicy. Personally I prefer the original flavor than the smoked. Lamb shoulder was under my expectation because the meat was a bit too dry.

Obviously one of the best places to visit in amsterdam for some tasty ribs. And you can tell because it only took 10m for the place to be completely full after the opening at 4pm (On a rainy day)

We was recommended this restaurant by two other people who had visited Amsterdam. Theres not much seating, so prepare to wait for a table.... but worth the wait! We ordered bread and pate for starters to share, it was huge! But beware, your given another basket of bread with your mains. Me and my husband both had the mixed ribs... More

I always visit Café De Klos on the first night of my annual trip to Amsterdam. Just thinking about the ribs is making my mouth water. Original ribs and Jacket potato, delicious. Just make sure you get there early.

.....after walking around the beautiful Amsterdam, you couldn't deserve a better place to have an unforgettable original dinner! You probably need to wait around couple of hours to get a table but the food is great! It's not a turistic place obviously...

As expected after reading reviews this place was busy and we were taken across the road to the bar to wait. However we were told wait was over and hour but was no where near that and well worth the wait. We both got the mixed ribs and I was expecting to prefer the smoked ribs but I felt they... More

If you are looking for a good meal, defenitly go visit De Klos. The Smoked Ribs are really good. Keep in mind that De Klos is very populair and it can be really crowded, but worth the wait.

This place from the outside and indeed from the inside does not look like a place you would want to venture in to but, the waiters were very good to us and the lamb chops were divine! Get there early as you will most likely need to wait for a table, usually between 15 and 30 minutes.
