“Ribs and satay beef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We booked a week before arriving due to the good reviews and enticing pictures posted up on here.

We ordered the ribs and satay beef, alongside some salad and chips. The ribs fell off the bone, and the satay beef was very tender. The chips weren't that great; more like something from a school meal, but the salad made up for it.

The service was also exemplary.

“Great dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

A friend advised us to go here for the ribs, and they were delicious. I also loved the french onion soup. A venue for a good quality steakhouse type meal.

“Imagine Fantastic Ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The place is amazing! I make it to Amsterdam at least once a year and ALWAYS come here just to have the ribs! Every time I bring friends I insist they have the spare ribs and EVERYONE loves them. Trust a Texan who knows good ribs, if you want an authentic, real Amsterdam experience - YOU HAVE GOT TO HAVE DINNER HERE! Ask for Nadia!

“The steaks to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

starving and exhausted after a 2-hour flight to amsterdam, we found ouselves (3 of my friends and i) seated in this steakhouse at 12mn. twas our first night and luckily we found this gem of a resto in the heart of Rembrandtplein.
i ordered a lady fillet steak and some fries to go with it. the steak was spot-on; juicy and it just melts in your mouth. definitely one of the best steaks ive ever had in my life. the french onion soup was superb and the ribs (no, i didnt order the ribs but two of my friends did) was so enormous that two people can share it without getting hungry for days. seriously, the food was so good we had to go back and take our last ddinner in amsterdam in this steakhouse.

one of the downsides is the long wait. we had to sit around for almost an hour for our food tho it was very well worth it.
another thing is the heavy smell of weed on the way to the place. this resto is surrounded with pubs and other steakhouses and there's this plaza where a bunch of people smoke pot, and naturally, you dont get to escape the smell but once you're inside, you're okay.
all in all, i had a very nice experience and i might come back if ever i find myself in amsterdam again. :)

“Correct food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

I ordered marinated spare ribs with fries. It did take a while but they are made fresh. Big portions (2 pieces)
