And all you can eat ribs for under €10!! Don't be fooled by the decor inside which isn't very pretty - it's a good place to get cheap food - the steak is amazing - and cheap beer!! The pancakes looked lush - shame I didn't have room to squeeze one in!! Friendly staff and we didn't experience slow service although the place was very busy. Definitely wasn't smoky inside as some reviews might suggest. It's not my usual sort of place, but they were showing the Olympics on the TV and a couple of groups were cheering and singing, which made for a great atmosphere.

Hungry as we were, we went for the spare ribs. The food was great, but the service was so slow that I wanted to scream! The waitresses posses a stunning ability to ignore you, while heading for other guest, probably reaching their critical level of impatience. I would not recommend going there unless you have a lot of time to waste! Too bad for the great spare ribs, really.

Service is always quick at the Satellite Sports Cafe. Also, there is a huge variety on the menu for all appetites. You can get a typical American dish or try one of the many versions of dutch pancakes. Good drink specials and sports played on several televisions make this a regular stop for us when we are in Amsterdam.

We went there for the ribs, they were really good, and all you can eat. The sweet pancakes were a very nice surprise. The service on the other hand was poor, and they smoke inside, so it was smelly. All in all it was good for lunch.

If you are hungry and you feel you can eat a lot, then you should order this dish: spare ribs unlimited! Don't miss this cafe when you are traveling in Amsterdam: Satellite Sports Cafe at Leidseplein Amsterdam. The foods are good and price not expensive, it is an ideal place for budget travelers who like to have local foods. My sons ordered spare ribs, when they finished their ribs, they just repeat ordered and the ribs will be served free of charge! You can keep on order if you can finish the ribs. The children really love the ribs! We visited the cafe again the following night, and the children ordered the ribs again even they already eaten a lot of ribs the previous night!
