Best ribs

One of my first times having ribs, my girlfriend recommend it, so off we went. I wasn't disappointed. I had the 'regular' ribs recommend by the waiter, and they were magnificent! The only downside is if you go mid evening, you could be waiting 2 hours for a table, but they have their own bar over... read more

Every time i'm in Amsterdam I'm coming to this place. The atmosphere is great, the staff are friendly, the prices are decent and most important- the amazing food! Love it! When the place is full, we "need" to wait in their bar accross the road. I say "need" because it's also fun and nice to have a drink for 30... More

If you would like have a sitting there, I suggest you to go before 16.00 and wait at the queue. After 16.00, all seats will be taken and restaurant will be full. It is a meat restaurant, but I had better meat before, so for me food wasn't that good. Also waiters were so rude, I guess, being busy with... More

Amazing food, good service and a cool, laid-back pub atmosphere. Friendly bar staff and the food is to-die-for. So far the best food experience in Amsterdam, period.

My husband remembered this restaurant from a visit four years ago. After I've been there I know how he remembered. The food is spectacular and the service is great. The restaurant can be very busy. But they take you to a bar to wait. That bar deserves a very positive review aswell. Do not waste your time by ordering beers.... More

Excellent racks of ribs in a cozy pub. The portions are generous so I would consider getting a spare plate (€6) if you are not all super hungry. There is sometimes a wait for a table but don't worry, they will come and get you from the pub across the road once your turn comes...

We arrived around 4:30pm hoping to be early enough to get a table as we were a large group of 12 so even a big restaurant would struggle, expecting a wait we were asked to grab a couple of beers in their pub over the road and they would come and get us when it was ready, originally the estimated...

There was quite a long que outside, luckily we managed to get in and get seated. The downside is that we were sat on bar stools sitting at a small 'breakfast bar' type table which was very awkward to sit comfortably and we were almost back to back with strangers. This made it difficult for the staff to get pastt... More

The meat on the ribs simply melt off and are filled with juicy BBQ flavour. The atmosphere and friendliness of the staff was amazing. I always come here when i come to Amsterdam
