Excellent dinner

This place is doing something right - focus on several things which they do in an excellent way. The ribs were amazing and so were the potatoes and the beer. Service is lovely and it's an overall experience that is worth the wait (and you will wait...)

Seriously, if you don't like meat don't go here - the meat portions are large, beautifully cooked and melt off the bone. You can't book, so expect a wait in the bar across the road for about 60 - 90 mins for your table., the staff will collect you. I ate there on Saturday 11th, ordered the shoulder of lamb... More

Kafe de Klos serves the best ribs I ever had, and the other members of the table share the same feeling with me. This is undeniably their specialty, they know what they're doing. The staff is super kind, the beer is amazing, this place is a must in Amsterdam. Most importantly, the place opens everyday at 4pm, no reservations, not... More

Really the best. We had to wait for an hour or so but the wait was worth it. Nice dishes, nice waiters and stuff, and nicer local beer. Enjoy very much

I got the recommendations on this place from two of my friend. When we arrived there on the first time there was no place in the restaurant and it was either to wait 1,5 hours or listen to the host who told us to come back tomorrow at opening time. We've return back the day after and ate the best... More

A little difficult to find location-wise as well as having an inconspicuous front-of-shop, but very much worth it! When you go in, it is a dimly-lit dark wooden-panelled bar, with two tables and the rest of the seating being around the bar. Try and get there early (before 5:30pm), or face waiting for 45 minutes (still worth it). Try the... More

We visited Cafe De Klos and were not disappointed. The food is of a great standard and very very tasty. would recommend to anyone with a good appetite. The bread with garlic butter is a nice side to any of the mains. I had the 600g Prime Steak and by 2 compardres had the Lamb Shoulders.

The spareribs were all tender and juicy. Personally I prefer the original flavor than the smoked. Lamb shoulder was under my expectation because the meat was a bit too dry.
