Came here on the basis of recommendations on TripAdvisor for our final night in Amsterdam and we were not disappointed. My wife and I arrived at about 6:15 and had to wait around 30 minutes to get a table (a testament to the restaurant itself - make sure you get there early or reserve a table in advance). We were...

A block away from most touristy places near Leidesplein and quieter (on the canal). Grabbed an outside table; very friendly waitress graciously had to move us to another. Ribs were spectacular and the beef very good.

The best darn spareribs ever! Really! Very tender and tasty. Perfectly baked potato and a spicy BBQ sauce on the side. Great service from friendly staff tops it off. Go there and thank me!

Popped in on a recommendation on a busy saturday, sat at the bar to eat. Great service, great atmosphere and easily the best steak I've ever had. Offended by women being given a smaller steak knife though! ;)

The place I go to everytime I fly to Amsterdam. Had a dinner once on a boat moored outside the restaurant. Ate at the low tables with the food on our laps as we went in a big group, the hanging lamps kinda blocked us from seeing across the table. Otherwise, the prime ribs are excellent each time, spare ribs... More

We saw this restaurant on TripAdvisor with excellent reviews. (I not only write reviews, I read others for advice!) and everyone raved about the ribs. Now, I am a New York rib-loving gal. I have eaten them smoked, slow cooked, dry rubbed and sauced. I know my ribs. So we had our hotel call and make reservations for us for... More

The food is delicious and the service is great. The tables outside are the best and sadly you can't book them. We will be back soon.
