“Great experience”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

What a memorable evening - a quirky restaurant with real atmosphere and all you can eat ribs (and they certainly weren't reluctant to serve you with more food) at a really good price. Yes, a bit basic in some respects but that didn't detract from a really enjoyable evening. The staff worked very hard to serve people promptly and we had no complaints about the service. If you fancy doing something a bit different then try this.

“Tasty meaty ribs”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Definitely worth a visit. They do try and cram as many people as they can in, very cosy with diners on tables either side of you. The ribs were delicious, very lean and tasty. Waiters offering seconds of potatoes and ribs. Great atmosphere. Would certainly eat here again.

“Skip this”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Nice place, decent food but very bad service, and it's a pity, because it could be a very cozy spot to come back to over and over, but I definitely left the restaurant with the firm decision not to step in it anymore in my future visits to Ghent.

“Great food, slow service”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

I went to Amadeus twice during my recent visit for a conference. Once with a friend, where we had an exceptionally long wait for menus, then to have our order taken and then drinks/food to be brought to us. I'm from Ireland, so I'm used to slow service, this was SLOW!! Don't think we would have minded so much but it was a really warm day and the place was boiling so a drink would have kept us happy while waiting!

Second visit was for a large company dinner. Still slow service but completely different as we were part of this big group. We had the same server as our first visit, Devin, lovely chap. Got talking with him and he made sure we had drinks and food for the evening. Just be warned that the water costs 6 euro a bottle. Dev explained to us that they have a very efficient water cleansing system that they paid quite a lot for!!!

The ribs are good and they are all you can eat. Served with a baked potato that's loaded with a garlic and herb butter that would make you lick the plate! And a salad, dressing was nice enough. They have plenty of different local beers, great for the beer enthusiast.

I'd recommend it but be prepared to wait and try to avoid sitting in the small room to the left. Try to get further into the restaurant. Funky decor with a 'library' room!
