  • Don't forget it is Ascension Day today. You may want to call to confirm this place is open.
  • This steakhouse is famous for their spare ribs. It's one of the most popular in the city!

    Small and cosy, but a bit under-maintained. Great steak!

    Ribs ribs ribs thats all you need to get. Can easily split one order for two people. Staff is rude but I think they do it as part of the atmosphere. VERY small so get there early or prepare to wait.

    The ribs are the must-have! Very juicy with crunchy top! Sad, can't reserve the table in advance, but they have a nice pub to wait in across the street!

    Ok, you most possibly will have to wait a couple of hours (they have a bar across the street where you can drown your time in some wonderful beer) but IT IS WORTH IT. You like meat? COME HERE.

    Can't beat the spare ribs. Pull apart good. The big portion is easy to share. Be ready to wait, but the wait goes quicker at their lovely bar across the street (which has a great beer selection)

    Ribs here are heavy on the cartilage and somehow manage to be simultaneously very fatty and quite dry. Not really my bag. And definitely not worth putting up with the crazy wait times & poor service.
