We had decided before we visited Amsterdam that we would come here after reading all of the reviews. When we visited it was quite busy, we ended up with a table which was quite close to the toilets so had a few people squeeze through past us to get to the toilets while we were eating which was a bit...

We went to this restaurant and loved every minute. You cannot book a table, so be prepared to wait. But there is a bar across the street with excellent attentive staff (Thijs was fantastic), then when your table is ready the staff come to the bar to get you. We had a seat at the bar, which normally I wouldn't... More

I visited this place a couple of times, and I have to admit, never been disappointed in the ribs - although I still cannot decide whether the smoked are non-smoked are better. This place definitely has a lot of value for the price. The only complain I have, and that happened every time unfortunately, is the unfriendly and arrogant service.

Jesus Christ these are the best ribs I have ever had! Excellent and friendly service with a relaxed cool atmosphere. If you go to Amsterdam and you don't eat here you are seriously missing out. Don't waste time ordering a potato, you won't be needing it and you'll just feel bad for wasting it.

We went to this restaurant at the suggestion of a friend and it was well worthwhile! The ribs are unlike anything that I've ever eaten and are delicious. The restaurant is small and you can not reserve a table in advance. But has an agreement with a bar across the street, where you can wait. You can take to the... More

tried a lot of spare ribs in other places but I have never tasted better ribs then in this joint. A must-eat when you're in Amsterdam. Other meat-dishes are great as well.

Definitely a must visit place. The ribs are so amazing you would want to visit the place time and again. I recommend the mixed ribs. Please mind that the place is very crowded and the service isn't the best, this is the main reason I gave only 4 points and not 5. To enjoy the food you must come with... More

This place is a must- stop, must- eat place in Amsterdam. I have been here several times and the ribs are exceptional. Don't know what they do to them, but it is excellent. In a city where it is difficult to find a great meal (not the main attraction of this city) this restauarant really stands out. If you are... More

GREAT RIBS! I've been twice (so good we went back!), and both times we had the original ribs (my sister, who lives in Amterdam, recommends that the smoked ribs are just too salty, but I suppose that depends on taste...) Melt-in-the-mouth meat and great beers. The normal racks of ribs are huge (3x four-ribs), so either have just ribs with... More
