The service is intentionally a little harsh and the wait is always long but the ribs are great. I always go for the smoked with the escargot to start. It's delicious!

After reading the reviews we wanted to try Cafe de Klos. They are very busy and do not take reservations. We arrived for dinner and were advised of a 90 minute wait time. We were directed to wait at a bar directly across the street....More

Some wonder whether or not this place worth the wait. In my humble opinion, since the wait itself usually consists of drinking beer in the pub across the Cafe, it's worth it. Just go there 30-60 minutes before you actually want to eat... Oh, and...More

you just need to go and wait on another place for around 1-2 hours or more, another time and money lostץ The waiter who registers the line behaves rudely and not nice.

Best ribs ever! Texans need to fly here to figure out what ribs should be! Usually a long wait but they partner with the bar across the street to wait. They are fast friendly and efficient. We went twice...

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

Thy don't take any reservation and do go earlier like 6 as it may take time to queue. Party of 9 can be challenge to get the counter seat for you...
My husband LOVES ribs, so I feel like we have to go here. That being said - I'm a not a big steak eater and have trouble eating meat on the bone (I know I'm picky). Do they have any other options? I can't seem to find a menu. Any boneless chicken, pork, or fish would do! Thanks!
