In general the food and the price were good. On the opposite side they don't make reservations and they sent you to their bar in front to wait for an average of 1 hour or hour and a half. The customer service was also non existing, they were not present and their manners were quite rude.

When you will arrive, you will always automatically be told "place on the bar 45 minutes, a table at least 1 hour and a half", and I don't like the way the waiters say this, they are kind of rude and arrogant. I wonder if they will still say this if you go to the place when it's all empty.... More

This is one of the best dining experiences we had during our travels throughout 5 countries in Europe! The bar across the street rocks so you have a way to pass time during your wait (which is likely). The food is exceptional, the flavoring is spot on and the meat is so tender. My fiancé had the ribs and said... More

This cafe was exceptional. There is a holding bar across the road where we had to wait about 30-40 minutes for a table (we were a party of 3A 2C), but the wait just made us more ravenous. Starters of French Onion and Tomato Soups, Escargot, and ribs for all, plus some brevvies to wash it all down with came... More

Amazing place to eat if you are a meat lover, the portions are huge and the food all tastes amazing! It gets very busy so you may have to wait for a seat but you are advised to head to a nice pub across the road to wait where they will come across and get you (and you can even... More

If you are in Amsterdam for a visit, this place is recommended to have a nice meal with family or friends. I recommend to reserve in advance, otherwise you could be waiting for around an hour for a table, but don't worry, there is a nice pub in front where you could wait for your table with a nice and...

Great little spot specialising in ribs, really busy though so you may have to wait at certain times of day for a seat. Staff are lovely, friendly and helpful

On kerkstraat there's a small pub that serves the most amazing meat! I can truly recommend the ribs. There are basically no tourists there but only the local people so if you want to eat great food, love meat and want a geuine dutch experience you should definitely go here.

Small place, not far from the Leidsplein tram stop. Ignore all the tourist traps for food in the main square and head here. Make sure you book as it’s a small place but packs one hell of a punch. Amazing smoked meats and local beer, intimate setting and open kitchen. I’ve been to Amsterdam twice in two years and this... More

If there's one thing to order here, it's the smoked ribs and down it with Manke Monnik Tripel beer. The ribs were cooked perfectly and the flavour was spot on that I didn't even use any of the dips. Sat outside on the bench in the sunny day so wouldn't know how the vibe and atmosphere was inside. But if... More
