Excellent Grilled ribs

Picture a half circle shape bar with seating for about 15 and an open grill stuffed in the back of the room, and you have Cafe De Klos. BE FOREWARNED! You will have to wait to get into this place but it is worth it. The plates are big enough that they could easily be shared by 2. I had... read more

Takes 60 to 90 minutes to get a table, reservations are not possible. Place is quite small, up to 10 tables. Despite the small size, service can be late sometimes. Smoked ribs are the best ever had - try it out, you will not regret it.

Meats on Meats on Meats. If you're tired of the fast-food spots and want the closest thing to BBQ, this is your spot. Recommend getting there earlier and waiting in the pub, don't expect a ton of space but i'm sure you'll enjoy the meats. 4* for the waiting

For sure the best spare ribs in the city ! The smoked are the best but the regular are also great so you can take a mix. We have been there twice in one week and it was delicious.. The lamb shoulder is also very good dish..but more expensive. You can't order a table so you will have to wait... More

We eat here last night as a group of 5, ribs were to die for, honestly the best most of us have ever had! Could do with putting a few lights on as its a bit dark and gloomy but that is all! We come to Amsterdam quite a lot so definitely will be returning!!

Fantastic concept , limited in choice but every choice is a winner. Most of the time you will have to wait to get seated but you can do that in the bar on the oppossite side of the street and they will pick you up when there is room. The bar has plenty of beers and ales to choose from... More

The best ribs I've ever had!!! Was in Amsterdam in 2007 and missed it then. Came back on 2014 just to make it up for myself.
