You have to sign up early to get a table (only 3 in the place) but you can wait in the bar across the street and they will come and get you when your table is available. Veal, and spare ribs were divine! Very limited menu (vegans beware) but they do justice to their meats.

By far the best ribs ive tasted and the best food in Amsterdam! A quirky place with a great buzz! You will need to wait an hour or so for a table but they send you to a bar across the road which is cheap! They come get you when your table is ready. The staff are bubbly and exceptional!... More

Okay, in all seriousness, came here on the last night of our visit to Amsterdam. We waited for a table in the bar across the road for about an hour but it was well worth the wait. The bar (which is owned by the restaurant) had very friendly staff who served us some very nice beers and cocktails. Only downside... More

Don't go there and even bother yourselves with other dishes, go for the ribs, kick off your shoes, relax and enjoy! The antricote is also great. Nice bar like place!

My mouth is watering, thinking about those ribs... I found this place searching for fun restaurants in Amsterdam. Was hesitant because they don't take reservations, but in the end didn't matter. We came here after a wonderful afternoon in Madurodam, and taking the # 5 tram from Amsterdam Zuid train station. So easy to find, right off the tram route.... More

We met a girl in a taxi in Bol Croatia. She told us about Cafe de Klos so when we arrived in Amsterdam a week later we tracked it down. It is a true authentic Netherlands experience. Order the ribs, I got mine smoked, my husband got his the other style. I don't even know if they serve anything but... More

Great food, even that one of us is vegetarian. Potato was good, salad, bread and really good Tomato soup. The meat was great!

This this the best restaurant in Amsterdam. I ate in many places but this was unreal and we are so glad we went. Having read reviews and seeing that there is usually an hour wait it's honestly so worth it. They take you over to the bar across the road to grab a drink whilst you wait for your table.... More

We went there with my friend for a glass of wine and a dinner. As we went in, we found a place at the bar. At first the staff there were happy but then they both ask us twice if we were ready to order ! No we werent ready ! We just want some time to drink our wine... More
