Excellent meal. Great ambience. Ribs were succulent. Great idea to have a bottle of wine and pay for what you have .

We tried getting into this restaurant on the weekend but it was too busy. It's a popular place it seems. We cam back on a Monday and it was still busy, but we got a table. The specials are ribs or gambas. My partner had ribs and I had the gambas (big shrimp). They both came with lovely big baked... More

Had two racks of ribs. Good sauce. Great jacket potato. Very busy place. Queuing outside. Clean tidy. Not sure how the wine goes. Large bottle on the table, you drink, then at the end they take the bottle away and charge you what you have had! How? Will return.

Amadeus specialize in ribs, but I cannot say these ribs are the best I ever had. The place is somehow labyrinthine and gets so crowded at dinnertime that it is difficult even for the waiters to walk between the tables. Service is not bad, but the servers seem overwhelmed by the number of people the have to take care of.... More

Nothing to say for the quality of the ribs but some waiters could be more welcoming. The Irish looks nice but isn't strong enough. The inside of the restaurant has a beautiful decoration.

If you are a vegetarian, please go somewhere else. If, however, you like meat, especially ribs then COME HERE!! 😀 For a very reasonable price you get good beer, palatable wine, scrummy baked potatoes and outstanding ribs. Oh my goodness. These are ribs that just keep on coming - literally! Seriously; one price (just 17 euro) but "all you can... More

We reached there at about 7 pm and we had to wait awhile for a place. We were seated in the garden which was good but the restaurant itself has got character. It's a huge place with many rooms and you still need to wait! The all you can eat offer for ribs is great. All of us just loved... More

I had been to Amadeus in 1991 and was bowled over then. French friends who absolutely love this place and who had been there several times recently invited us there on 24 October. They ended up being embarrassed as the meal was extremely disappointing. The ribs which I remember as succulent were in actual fact so over cooked that they... More

Was not our first choice of restaurant but most restaurants were closed on a Monday night. The place was packed with customers and we were very happy that we came. Their speciality was an all you can eat ribs special. Initially I was skeptical that it would be good but I was wrong. The ribs were great !

Thank SelinaE
