Interesting atmosphere, you sit on couch like seats and eat on your lap. I'm pregnant and wasn't prepared for that but it worked out ok. Friends all ordered steaks and all were very pleased saying that the meat was tender and delicious. I had the ribs and they weren't my favorite but I really enjoyed the baked potato with garlic sauce.

The steak and ribs here never disappoint. The ribs are the best we have had in Amsterdam whilst living here for 3 years. In addition the Sancerre wine was exceptional. This was the first time we have eaten here in the summer and it was nice to sit outside and watch the world go by. As a local highly recommended.

Food good, atmosphere strange. Ddi not realise there are NO TABLES ! Yes, you sit on couches with a wooden plank on your knees. There are coffee tables in front of you for your drink. Sitting on sofas around a rectangular table means your table mates are the random people sitting around you. They heqr all you say. Definitely not for everyone. Wied and when you make a reservation, "Table for 4 peolple" no one at this place tells you they have couches and not tables!

It's a bit of a dark place and the seats are like sofa's around large tables, which was a bit of a surprise if you don't like eating on your lap. The food is simply fantastic. I order the Black Angus prime rib which was juicy and delicious. My family ordered the spare-ribs which were fantastic and the 600 gram T-Bone steak. Everything was cooked to perfection. You have to order the potato side-dish, it's really good. The salad is a bit of a rip-off because it's just some very cheap salad and tomato. Service is attentive. All in all a great place, but would have preferred to sit at a table.
