This place you will find in-between lots of regular turists traps, but this is no trap. They had great food, good service and the place had a good atmosphere. We had the sirloin steak for main, and cheesecake for dessert. Both very good, and also presented nicely. The selection of red wine on glass was limited, but still a highly... More

We arrived without a booking and we were told that they had no tables on the upper level but we could sit downstairs in the bar area. The tables are a little cramped down there but it didn't matter because the food was amazing. We both ordered the ribs and the waffle fries and it was honestly one of the... More

Based on the reviews and the fact that our apartment was 300 m away, we decided to visit the place. We chose Wednesday night "ribs night" and we were not disappointed. I strongly advise to everyone to make reservation quite ahead as the restaurant is very busy on these nights and they are closed on Sunday, Monday. I read the... More

Read the reviews and dropped in for a cocktail, stayed for dinner. Staff great - funny and very slick. Drinks excellent. Food was really really good too. Atmosphere trendy but not OTT.

we have no complaints about the drinks, food, or service. But the air conditioning must have been broken (?), it was so hot in there (especially given that this small restaurant has a set up with the kitchen in the front and no windows for ventilation). try the spare ribs, that's what they are known for!

The ambiance in the restaurant is great. Quite posh and trendy at the same time. The service was very friendly and attentive. There were bottles of free tap water on the table all the time without us having to ask. The starters were not all to my liking but changes by the chef were possible. The spareribs are the signature... More

When our first choice restaurant for our first night in Amsterdam was fully booked, my boyfriend stumbled upon Mystique on google. It was getting late, a lot of kitchens were already closing but this place happened to be open for another half an hour when we got there, so we immediately grabbed a table. It was around 9:30 on a... More

We were shown to the bar downstairs as the upper level restaurant was fully booked. The bar has a wonderfully warm feel with an incredibly stocked long bar attended by Bar staff who ensure everyone has a good time. The service was really fun and friendly, our meals were delicious. Would definitely revisit given more time in this fabulous city.

Great place to eat, drink and be merry. Met by extremely friendly staff offering cocktails. The signature dish is Ribs - probably the best I've ever had, duck also very good. The staff were so friendly, cocktails great and a really nice atmosphere. Highly recommend to everyone except maybe families with younger children and we will certainly be returning.
