By far the best and most reasonably priced meal in A'dam!

We had a recommendations from a friend to make sure we ate here at least once. He was spot on! Excellent fall-off-the-bone ribs! We had to wait about 30 minutes at a bar across the street while a spot opened up at the bar. Definetly worth the wait! And the price, we both ate for the cost of one... read more

Living in Amsterdam, I have been few times visiting this really nice tipical dutch cafe'-restaurant. The place and the food are nice (the meat is super but the soup not at all), exept for the service. Terrible! Always waiting hours before to get in, and as soon as they see you are not local, they treat you as the last... More

This is a great place, according to me the best meat in town. However there is a lack of interest from the staff, experienced this several times when visiting. Unfortunately you can't make a reservation, but this makes it more interesting. If you like meat, visit this place!!!!! Staff could improve, but I will give 5-STAR rating just for the... More

Best ribs ever. If your a grilled meat fan just do yourself a favour and go...now! Only problem is that there are no reservations and it's packed so you may need to wait and the staff can be a bit rude sometimes but it's totally worth it in this case trust me!

We took a Canal Tour and Neal told us about this place. Great food and atmosphere. The waiters were funny and attentive. They were on top of the service and really made the experience memorable. There can be a wait but we stopped in about 6 pm and walked right in. Love this place and we will go there again.

This is one of the few restaurants in Amsterdam me and my friends who live here always take visitors as a "must do" restaurant when visiting Amsterdam. At the time of writing this, it's ranked #86 in Amsterdam which is an absolute injustice. If you're visiting Amsterdam and want a great Dutch bar / restaurant feel with fantastic food and... More

The most amazing food. The atmosphere is pretty chilled, service is relaxed and the food is out of this world. Portions are huge so good idea to share. I loved it!
