Amsterdam General Apartment Details Eat and Drink Things to do Food Stuff TRIPADVISOR Explore Cafe de Klos should top off your list of Amsterdam restaurants - you WILL have to wait, they don't take reservations, but the high quality and perfectly cooked meat is well worth it. Don't let the 'cafe' fool you - this is a serious steakhouse and... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a family friend and was happy to give it a go. The restaurant is small and they don't take bookings so once you turn up you have to go and wait in the pub across the road. Once called over the menu is small but has everything you would expect from a steak house.... More

This place is the kind of which I dream about. Chilled venue, great music playing, lovely staff. My wife and I thought we would pay this is visit after seeing great reviews and weren't disappointed. We couldn't get a table but it was no problem as we sat at the bar and I'm really pleased we did as we could... More

Perhaps the best ribs I have had... and I make them frequently at home! It takes around 35 minutes for us to walk to the restaurant from our hotel, but it is worth it. They are usually full so we have a pint across the street and they come get you. It's a small, rustic venue so expect to eat... More

My dutch relatives recommended I visit Cafe de Klos for their ribs. I was skeptical at first, as the place seemed too busy, but once I got a seat it was absolutely worth the wait. The spare ribs are HEAVENLY, and I don't say that lightly. I am a changed man for having tasted these ribs. Do yourself a favour... More

Don't go there looking for fancy table cloths or fine wines. This is a meat and potato place with old wood beams, bar service and a few tables. The grilled meats are superb, one platter is enough for two, but why not splurge and enjoy yourself. You'll likely spend about 50 Euros for two people and will enjoy every bite... More
