Best ribs in town and surroundings

Great place for ribs. I would love to know the recipe of the superb potato filling they serve. If you are in town, this is a must.

Oh and the jacket potato it comes with was a very close second. It has this kind of curry sauce/butter in it. Makes my mouth water thinking about it! It's pretty 'fast food' in fact they look a little surprised if you ask for a menu! It is ribs and as many as you want but that is pretty much... More

I would definitely say this restaurant is a novelty experience. The main draw is the all you can eat ribs, which is awesome, but I would have liked to have a little more choice. The ribs themselves were pretty good. They were well cooked but I prefer a tangier sauce. Otherwise the staff was very nice and accommodating.

We ordered ribs 2 times, they were brought in a minute, they serve them with with butter potato and a bit of lettuce with mayonnaise sauce. I do not know how they manage to cook 20 portions of ribs in a minute, but it is clear that they are ready long before the visitors come. The ribs are not tasty.... More

I don't get what's so fabulous about Amadeus. The ribs really aren't that great, and I had better sauces as well. I would recommend Gekroonde Hoofden instead.

As per title, so we called in again. Same 'All you can eat' Ribs, and we did. Sat outside in a quaint little courtyard this time which was nice. Food, as you'd expect, plentiful and the house Red already on the table was quite palatable too.. Staff really friendly and helpful... Would go back for sure.

It feels strange to be so taken by a place with simple menues, unsophisticated interior and wine sold by cm. But the combinations and original setup in combination with very nice atmospeher makes it a must if want a cosy evening dinner in Genth. This is in fact a spare rib restaurant. Enjoy!

Superb value, great ribs, I'm definitely coming back to Ghent and I'll definitely be making a booking here when I do so. Two racks and two superb jacket spuds polished off after an 85 mile cycle ride was just what the doctor ordered

Great concept just like in Antwerp with an extraordinary interior, all you can eat spareribs and enjoy the mix of local people and tourists with a nice beer or wine. This location also offers outside dining on the terrace, unfortunately you don't get fries with the ribs.

I went to this restaurant because of so many reviews about Amadeus for their ribs. However, I was really disappointed for their ribs, which should be their specialty. The place is cozy, one can have a table indoor or in their nice garden. It is quite spacious for a group meal. When I came there, there were several groups having... More
