Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant as the best ribs in Amsterdam, and he wasn't wrong! It is located in the canal district within walking distance of the Marriott hotel. We were hungry for an early dinner so we went early and waited outside till it opened at 5PM and were seated immediately at the bar, our choice. This is... More

I went to this restaurant because I Googled "ribs" in amsterdam and this was one of the top results. We arrived and the waiter rudely told us it would be an hour wait. He was loud and super annoying. More on him later. The food was really lovely, you get so many ribs for your money! It was really yummy... More

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
