We met a girl in a taxi in Bol Croatia. She told us about Cafe de Klos so when we arrived in Amsterdam a week later we tracked it down. It is a true authentic Netherlands experience. Order the ribs, I got mine smoked, my husband got his the other style. I don't even know if they serve anything but... More

Great food, even that one of us is vegetarian. Potato was good, salad, bread and really good Tomato soup. The meat was great!

This this the best restaurant in Amsterdam. I ate in many places but this was unreal and we are so glad we went. Having read reviews and seeing that there is usually an hour wait it's honestly so worth it. They take you over to the bar across the road to grab a drink whilst you wait for your table.... More

Cafe de kloss is a nice place fairly easy to find. We were lucky enough to get seated really quickly on a side table which was fortunate as it gets very busy. Staff on entering were a bit standoffish and didn't really warm up but the food was great. We had the regular ribs main and also the tenderloin which... More

I never thoughr that I'll visit Amsterdam so to remember Ceausescu's queues!!! For the younger people in those times we had to wait for 3-4 hours on queues for some meatless bones to make a soup... I did the same yesterday waiting in front of Cafe Klos... In the end. I got my portion of spare ribs and they had... More

Went to eat with friends. One of the waiters is rude and obviously tired of his job(maybe life aswell). Once we finished food we where basically shun out from the restaurant to give room for new customers. They basically told us their coffee and brownies are bad so better go eat the desserts elsewhere.

We went to Cafe de Klos last night, and were more than happy to put our names down and wait at the bar over the road - great idea! However after a 2 hour wait by the time we got our food it all started going downhill...The main courses arrived with the steak - 600gram to share between three ordered... More
