The ribs are really nice, cost around 20-26 euros - so decide yourself if it is expensive or not. After you eat, ask for a drink called "orgasm", this will help to deal with the food you ate.

Large serving of tender lightly charred pork ribs served with light salad is a must try in Amsterdam. Be warned that during dinner hours, the wait to be served can be up to 2hours. No reservation in this Cafe. Pork rib meal @€25.00.

Been coming here for 30 years. Always any first and last meal in Amsterdam. Friendly staff always, perfectly BBq’d ribs, a baked potato to look forward to. Always worth the wait. Don’t be deterred by the 45 minute wait.

I'd been recommended this restaurant off-hand by my father who used to live in Amsterdam over 10 years ago. He recalled it was a "nice place to get good ribs. Go there if you get the chance." Oh how much I owe to his good...More

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.
