Ribs were burned and really tasteless. Steak was chewy and we almost couldn't cut it. Service itself was really bad, even when compared to other restaurants in Amsterdam. It looks like the waiters don't care about you, relying on the past success of the establishment.

Best ribs in Holland. A must visit place for meat lovers. Due to the fact that there are only 40 chairs at max, there is a long queue if you get after 17.00. Another fact, people wait over an hour just to eat there! Anyway,...More

Very good spare ribs, but to get to that there's a very long waiting and disappointing service to top it off! The short staffed service crew, are overburdened with an unending queue of food lovers and come across as rude rather than funny.. The place...More

We got a little bit lucky and got a table even without reservation, however I recommend calling in earlier and making reservation, since the space is usually very crowded. But there is a reason for that. It's nice, little bit darker place with decent beer...More

We stopped by the Klos with no reservations, were told it would be a couple hours wait; decided to give it a shot, only took a half hour. Glad we waited, the food was as advertised: very good.
