Description: Amadeo, one of the Amadeus restaurants in Belgium with its unique formula with a very fine establishment in each aspect takes you to another time. You will enjoy more, with our low prices. A perfect restaurant for a dinner for two but also for groups till 200 people. The unique setting makes it complete. Ribs "all you can eat"!

“Never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Very poor service, stay away if you do not want to take te risk of being disappointed. They claim "all you can eat" yet they forget to offer you another round of ribs for a long, long time.
First portion was of average quality, second portion was small and burned, third portion small and cold. Made a complaint about this yet they seem not to care. That's when i gave up and asked for the bill which i paid without tip.

“Fun rib restaurant in Brussels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

I met up with friends at Amadeus and we ordered a ribs and seafood platter. The rib platter was good. These are beef not pork ribs, and the meat was well seasoned but did require a bit of effort to tear it from the bone. The helping size was more than adequate and the dish included a nice sized stuffed potato and salad. My friend enjoyed the seafood platter of steamed shrimp, so there is something for the non-meat diet as well. Each table comes with a large bottle of house wine which they charge by the glass. I didn't try the wine, but our server indicted it was nothing special. I'd say this is a good restaurant to frequent in Brussels if you miss an American meal.

“Finger Licking Good!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I went to this restaurant with my partner last week after a recommendation. This was truly the best ribs I've have ever tasted... Juicy, hot and coated in a succulent sauce... All UNLIMITED racks for a great price.
This is defo a Top 10 must visit place to eat when in Brussels.
An old school type joint, be prepared to get messy and stuffed.
You cannot go wrong if you are a meat lover, one rack is simply not enough! Ace!

“Escape from the rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Amadeus serves up RIBS with a smile and when you finish they offer to serve you again!
There is a template formula here and it works really well, the entire place is furnished and decorated with an eclectic American theme, bookshelves line the rooms and interesting memorabilia gives the feeling you have been transported to another country, it really is an escape.

The ribs were delicious. Reading other reviews I wasn't expecting them to be so meaty and so tasty....mmmm. The second round were a smaller set about half the number and that was perfect for me. If one and a half ribs isn't enough don't worry, you can have more.

The staff (I spoke with 5 people) are really nice, friendly and quick to help if you need anything. Watching your table and quick to ensure that the bone bucket on your table is emptied and you still have ribs left on your plate. I went with friends, a table of 4 on a Saturday night... the restaurant was buzzing and the atmosphere was great. Apple cake was delicious, served with icecream and whipped cream for just 4€.... who can complain about that?

Take some friends and go eat here for ribs, it's fun, cheap and relaxed. Reservations recommended.

“Couldn't ask for more for under €20”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This place was recommended by a friend and it was just what we needed. Fortunately we got the last table before the queuing started. Get there early to avoid queuing, every time we went down the street there was a queue out the door. The ribs, jacket and salad were good, not the best but when the waiter is coming round every 5 minutes offering another full rack and jackets you can't complain. One of out group had the vegetarian burger which was only ok, but you don't go to a rib restauant to complain about the vegetarian option. While we were eating the power went off 3 times so we ate in the dark for a few minutes, but the waiters continued to serve as if nothing had happened so I assume this happens regularly. We would definitely visit again.
