“Good beer, good ribs”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

It does look like there are other offerings on the menu but everyone around us were having the ribs so we went with that. The ribs are meaty, very filling. In some other rib places we've been the ribs have been very small, so these are the super size versions! The spicy sauce is a very strong bbq sauce which was nice but the hot was nicer. Would try the salt version next. If you can manage seconds, you get the option of half or full portion, and you can change the sauce too, which is a great option. Great beer selection, friendly staff and nice setting on the Botermarkt.

“Nice place with great spare ribs!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

I've been coming here for years now and always order the spare ribs, which are very tasty, especially the sweet ones. A few years back you had a main course (e.g. ribs) for only €10,- but those times are over: ribs will cost you €14 nowadays. Still not pricy though, and definitely worth it! The place itself is a no-nonsense bar where you can have a simple meal and a beer, but there's a nice atmosphere, especially when it's sunny and the terrace is open. The staff is friendly and works hard.

“Disappointed!!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

After we at @ Het Pak Huis the night before which was a very satisfying dinner...we tried Café de Linde after reading TA reviews.

Ok the place was full, but the service was horribly slow, with overpriced Bottled water @ €5.95 per bottle, and although their red house wine might won awards...it`s not worth it @ €12 per small carafe I had tasted better wine.
Ribs looked inviting but we opted out for a chicken breast €12.95 & a mixed grill €16.50
which was given to us Lukewarm after an hour of waiting...and was just ok.... they could do much better or maybe they were short of staff or they had an off day.... but certainly we wouldn't think of returning there.

“Great beer place”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

They have good choice of special beers. I liked nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Also they have yammy spare ribs "all you can eat". So, very nice place to have beer with friends.
