The ribs in Amadeus are very tasty. It is also a volonté, so it is recommended for people who enjoy eating a lot. The price is also very good, not only for the meal but also for the drinks. Not recommended for vegetarians. The only problem I found is the lack of organisation. We had reserved a table for 4... More

I'm not a big fan of chain restaurants offering as many ribs as you can eat but I was struck by all of the branches seeming to be full so decided to try it on a Monday when the kitchens of Gent seem to close down like the museums. It was buzzing inside and the waiters were going back and... More

I really liked the interior of the restaurant. It didn't feel like an enormous place though there were different rooms that held quite a lot of people. The spareribs were really tasty (and I'm not a big spareribs fan) and the staff was really friendly. I liked the big red wine bottle (1,5L) on the tables, of which you could... More

This is NOT the place for ribs. The service is terrible. The sauce and seasoning is acrid and not well thought out. If you get there early your first rack will be ok, but later on they get overwhelmed, but they will risk serving you an undercooked or burnt rack. There are too many cheap sides they want you to...

We actually went to Amadeus 2 which doesn't have its own listing. Amadeus 2 is near the Ghent Tourist office on Goudenleeuwplein 7. After spending a few weeks in Europe we wanted a casual meal, but not fast food. Amadeus hit the spot. We arrived a few minutes before 6 and we were seated quickly. By 6:30 they had a... More

A good tip if travelling to Ghent; avoid Mondays! Restaurants tend to close, and those places which are open are all fully booked weeks in advance. Hence why we ended up here, and boy did we regret it, Slow service. In fact, scratch that; poor service. Poor ribs with no real flavour. And forget the "all you can eat" chat;... More

How our guide found this restaurant I have no idea as it is out of the way, but I'm so glad he did. All you can eat ribs in an extremely quaint setting. When I was told it was all you can eat, I was expecting a low quality dive, it wasn't the food was lovely, though the house red... More

This was the end meeting point for the 20+ teams in the 2014 White Hat Rally in aid of Barnardo's. The teams met for lunch, and the limitless stack of ribs is what Amadeus is best known for. The restaurant is well decorated, the staff attentive and the location close to the heart of the beautiful city of Ghent. Will... More
