It's a vary cozy bar. Testy ribs, big meat plates for big companies and nice interior. It was great before any lockdowns but after looks like they made all meals just two times bigger. Definitely we will come there over and over again.

Small restaurant, great atmosphere and easy going friendly stuff. We came with a large group and that was no problem at all. We ordered a variation of everything and they came with a gigantic large plate - so cool. Everything tasted really good including the...beer. For someone who eats barely anymore meat, here it comes. The ribs are THE BEST - oh boy!!!! go for it - next time I am in Amsterdam, I go straight for the ribs. An insider told me (true or not, but it would make sense) they work with a specific butcher for the good quality and seasoning .More

Have been there for a business group dinner and was great. Nice and relaxed ambient to drink and talk. I do recommend the sharing plate with the complete restaurant menu samples. Enjoy the delicious food and relaxed atmosphere!

I had a Vega dish, which was soso. My peers were happy with the meat dishes. Good, bit not exciting.

We took our son, daughter-in-law and their son (our 2 year old grandson) to Braai, which is in their neighborhood. They were very accommodating to our multi-generational group. We had 2 meat eaters and 2 vegetarians among the adults, and there was delicious food for...both. The food was nicely presented, and was very tasty. Service was cordial and warm. It was slow, but perfect for a leisurely dinner out.More

You know when your 'gut' is telling you to leave, before you have been seated, well I chose to ignore my intuition. Waited for +/- 5 mins at bar for a seat, and NOBODY was visible, everyone (2 people ?) were in the kitchen. I...was eventually seated at the worst seat in the house (small single table) when there were plenty of empty other tables, but NONE of them had been cleaned from earlier in the evening ! It took forever to get menu, order drink, order food, receive drink and eventually receive food. I simply had a Monty burger and a beer ! The beer was good :D The burger was a poor 4/10 ... under cooked (I simply left the center and eat around it rather than request a re-do) .... tasted of poor quality meat ..... topped with a piece of pork belly that was tasty but chewy (How do you do that with pork belly?) .... Sorry, not going to be on my list to try again .....More

Second time here, husband eats meat while I'm vegetarian. He tells me the ribs and chicken wings were amazing. My portobello mushroom/ricoatta/beet appetizer was absolutely amazing. Order the Flatbread with vegetables as main but couldn't finish it. Unfortunate because it was really good as well....Better than our first time here and it turns out they have a new chef. Hang on to this one! It's really nice, as a vegetarian, to be able to join carnivores for dinner and have a wonderful and original meal yourself. Staff is great and very friendly. Highly recommend for vegetarians and carnivores alike.More
