I'm from Chicago and know a great rack of ribs. Cafe de Klos is hands down one of the best rib joints I've been to, I would have never guessed they could crank out such fine product in Amsterdam. We also had the Lamb chops...More

Received this recommendation from Airbnb Experience host and did not disappoint. As many restaurants that we were interested in were closed on Mondays and not available we decided to come here. Atmosphere was a bit like a dive bar but the food was worth it....More

Went in after reading about the Ribs in a magazine in the UK. It is small place like most Cafe’s in Amsterdam but very welcoming. Staff are great and informative. I was advised to go for the standard ribs by a member of the team....More

I went there on my first day in Amsterdam after a recommendation. Meat looked good. Too bad I did not get to taste it. Owner was snarky and sarcastic and the service was ridiculously slow. After waiting for forty minutes I got a water and...More

Third time eating here and it gets better!! If your coming to Amsterdam you have to experience this place! Chicken and ribs to die for! Overall spent around 50 euros for two meals with sides and drinks.

We had amazing ribs (smoked & not smoked, both delicious) we waited about an hour for a spot on the bar, and another 30 minutes for our food, totally worth the wait. Come hungry, the portions are huge !

Best nearby
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

The mixed ribs dish was abount 25 EUR and a small glass of Pepsi Max was around 3 EUR. It's not cheap but not overly expensive. You can have a main dish and 2 drinks for ~35 EUR including tip.
