The ribs were good but a little dry, the price 22.95 for spare ribs is too much in my opinion. The salad with it was nothing special. The baked potato as a side dish was nothing to complain about if it wasn't for the fact that I just ate at "Jacketz" where you would pay not much more for a... More

Best ribs in Amsterdam, been here many times. It is sometimes difficult to get a table but that is testament to the food. The service and staff can sometime be a little eccentric so do t get offended by the Dutch humour for me that just adds to the place

Best ribs ever! Large portions and the tastiest rubs and T-Bone Steak. We arrived early around 6pm and sat at the bar. It is definitely worth the wait for a table or seat at the bar. Go to the bar across the way and they will call you. The snails for starter was excellent too.

We knew we would have to wait for a table after reading other trip advisor reviews, we waited around an hour in the bar over the road and a member of staff came to get us when our table was ready. We were lucky enough to get a table in the window, there aren't many tables at all, you can... More

It opens at 4pm, we got there five minutes before and within minutes there were 5 groups of hungry people like us waiting in anticipation. Seating is limited and we were at the bar, near the kitchen. An order of mixed ribs for me and smoked chicken for the missus, 2 jacket potatoes and bread. Massive portions, definitely share the... More

The pork rib cannot be any better. The lamb shoulder is out of this world. To start, it is not easy to go in there. We got in the 3rd time and we waited for 2 hours in the waiting list to find a place at the bar. The ambiance of the restaurant is interesting, you are eating your food... More

There were very long waiting times for a table. There are no real tables within the restaurant. Most tables are outside. I happened to be there in one of the hottest days ever in Holland in the beginning of July. We were seated outsides and sweated heavily. The ribs and local beer were very good. Service was OK.

I think the moment I stood up and realised how much fantastic meat I'd eaten was one of utter contentment. Great ribs (I loved the Spares but the Smoked were also great), the beer is really well priced (esp compared to some other places in Amsterdam) and the service was funny, speedy and excellent. I will be back next time... More
