A very charming establishment, seated around the bar to munch on a pile of ribs! We had to wait a while to get seated, so we were directed over the road to a bar where they would come fetch us. All the staff were friendly...More

They do not take reservations, so we had to wait about 30-45 minutes, but it was worth it! The meat is amazing, I had the prime rib which very good, but all the dishes were good. The baked potato was also really good!

This place, apart from being charming and having a relaxed atmosphere, has the best ribs we have ever eaten. The portions are huge and the beer is good, too. If you like ribs,you will want to come back for more!

Whenever I'm in Amsterdam I always eat here. The ribs are quite simply the best I've ever eaten and the standard of the food is consistent. You'll not be disappointed eating here.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

They do pork ribs but they do lamb chops (and they do steaks too, beef). I don't know if they cook the lamb on the same grill they cook the pork on if that's an issue.

You cannot book or make reservations. This is a cult status eatery and demand is high so they don't offer reservations. If you want a table for 9 they have two tables near the door that can do this for you. My... More
