Although so many people say this place is always too crowded or hectic, and seem to feel that the service they were given was mediocre, I truly think that this place is very special, worth the visit , absolutely worth the waiting (long lines, better to be there by 17:30-18:30 and order a place , if the place is already...

We visited Amsterdam with some friends and wanted to try out some ribs. We tried two places. This one was an absolute disaster. The owner was very rude to us. We waited for a veeeeeeeeery long time (apprx. 2 hours), and then waited for another 45 minutes for our food. Afterwards finishing our ribs, they were asking us every 5... More

If you want to experience a real Amsterdam style cafe, look no further. Whenever I have friends over from abroad, this is the first restaurant i take them to, and I haven't disappointed any of them so far. The food is always great and the staff are always lively. Be aware reservations aren't an option, first,come first serve. If the... More

Best lamb chops in town! Can be a little crowded so go between rush hours. Small place but with great vibe.

Cafe De Klos is without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Amsterdam! Even in the depths of winter this restaurant has a buzzing atmosphere. The staff are always friendly, the interior is a classic Dutch style and the food...wow! All the meals are cooked over an open flame grill at the back of the restaurant and tastes divine! The menu...

Wew had to wait over an hour for a table (rather than the bar), but it is a very small place. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The meat was lovely. Salad and sides that came with the meat were very good too. But, very hot inside and music was far too loud for an enjoyable experience.

This week we were at Cafe de Klos. We received two plates of spare ribs and two glasses of wine for 42 euro. Maybe it is the best spare ribs in Amsterdam, but the attitude, attitude. The line is not a line. Guests (maybe familiar with the waiter) will enter before you. The service is impatient and loud. The guy... More
