We were looking for a place to eat. The guy asked if we came for the ribs. The beat ribs we've ever tried. You have to check them out! Very good service.

The title already says it all. Great great ribs, you can get them a little cheaper on Wednesdays though. And you must try some of the cocktails down stairs...

We went in with 5 people about 8pm. We went downstairs and asked if the table in the back was available and Rob told us yes. We ordered a bottle of wine and three cocktails as well as food. As the food came out, we were told by Rob we had to evacuate the seats because they had a party... More

Walk downstairs and you will find a terrific bar with great services and equally fine food. The main restaurant is upstairs, but we went down for a drink and stayed for the food as we were so impressed by the level of service and how we were made to feel comfortable immediately. Oh by the way, the "shakers" make some... More

A cool and laid back American style steak restaurant. We each had a generous portion of spare ribs and home made chips. House speciality, very juicy and tasty. Bar in basement with good selection of drinks. Recommendable

The Ribs at Mystique are absolutely fall off the bone delicious. I would have them every time and would go as far as saying they're the best ribs i've ever had, and i've eaten a lot of ribs. Definitely worth a visit.

This place you will find in-between lots of regular turists traps, but this is no trap. They had great food, good service and the place had a good atmosphere. We had the sirloin steak for main, and cheesecake for dessert. Both very good, and also presented nicely. The selection of red wine on glass was limited, but still a highly... More

We arrived without a booking and we were told that they had no tables on the upper level but we could sit downstairs in the bar area. The tables are a little cramped down there but it didn't matter because the food was amazing. We both ordered the ribs and the waffle fries and it was honestly one of the... More

Based on the reviews and the fact that our apartment was 300 m away, we decided to visit the place. We chose Wednesday night "ribs night" and we were not disappointed. I strongly advise to everyone to make reservation quite ahead as the restaurant is very busy on these nights and they are closed on Sunday, Monday. I read the... More

Read the reviews and dropped in for a cocktail, stayed for dinner. Staff great - funny and very slick. Drinks excellent. Food was really really good too. Atmosphere trendy but not OTT.
