We attended Ghent over the Easter weekend for a rugby tournament and were in a party of 40+ which the restaurant accomodation easily. Although a menu was available we visited this restaurant for their infamous spare ribs and we weren't disappointed. The meal was excellent and unlimited ribs soon filled everyone up. This must be a sought after restaurant as... More

We where stupid, on a very busy day. We where standing in line with a lot of people for a really long time. We where waiting to be seated. The restaurant was full but not packed. Nobody even looked at us. People in line where having a laugh about two waiters, sipping their drinks, leaning on a counter. People got... More

Great value all you can eat ribs. The garlic butter on the jacket potato was amazing!! Our waiter was really friendly and quick to provide extra sauce and ribs etc. Definitely worth a visit when in Ghent.

good ribs, entertaining atmosphere. Good formula for an evening with friends. Nice location in Patershol and a nice restaurant on Emile -Braunplein.

Stumble upon Amadeus when we were wandering, extremely hungry, around Ghent and unable to find anywhere open that didn't seem to be a rubbish tourist trap. What a find - one of the most enjoyable meals I can remember. Simple steak and "special" mashed potato, ribs, salad. A great lesson in how keeping things simple is often the best way... More

Must have eaten here about a dozen times now over the years, always consistent, good service, menu limited but most go for the ribs at Euros 17 ( and you can have as many as you want; the waiters are always hovering with additional portions) and the wine by how much you drink from the magnum on the table.Desserts good...

Lively place with good atmosphere and fun decor. Known for its spare ribs it's a meat eaters delight - good value and huge portions. The local chicken waterzooi (creamy stew / soup with vegetables) was lovely. Not fine dining but busy and good fun unless you're vegetarian!

Lovely little restaurant with great atmosphere. All you can eat ribs and baked potatoes. And when they say all you can eat they mean it.. waiters kept coming around trying to get you to partake. Loved the spicy sauce on the baked potatoes. Wonderful atmosphere very art deco. Get there early. We queued at 1830 on a Monday! Will definately... More

This place is great for the meat eater, as many ribs as you can eat for 16 euro, and they were delicious the baked potato with garlic sauce wasn't bad either, didn't try the Spanish house wine as this is Belgium so had to have beer. Great atmosphere too as the place was absolutely packed to the rafters.

Located in the old town (Patershol) of Ghent, Amadeus brings great "ambiance" and great food. Already many returns.
