Canal-side delight

Superb, tasty and generous portions. A vast range of mezze offered as unexpected appetiser while your meal is prepared. Classy upmarket place close to museums. Warm welcome - might need to book if you want table by canal.

If you choose this restaurant, and we recommend that you do, please consider sitting at the backyard facing the water. The fish dishes that we ordered were very tasty, were served without delay, and besides were good portions (very much worth the money we paid). The employees are extremely helpful and very friendly. Just as random amsterdamers who were waving... More

We had a lovely dinner on the terrace -- had the mezze platter and split an entree. The food was delicious, the service very warm and attentive, and the view was entrancing. Very close to the Rijksmuseum, so after a long day, it was the perfect choice.

The Turkish wine was good. They don't do tap water! They did offer to sell me a bottle of water so I had to buy a little bottle sparkling water. Superb food with intense and delicious flavors. Great restaurant so I will definitely go back there....Free wifi

We came early to this place so we were the only ones there. The restaurant is beautiful. An old house that feels like a livingroom, with high ceilings and windows onto the canal. The owner was very hospitable and offered us a choice of cold appetisers, from which we chose greens with olive oil, currants and pine nuts and an... More

This small Turkish restaurant serves Mediterranean food in a cozy, friendly atmosphere on an Amsterdam canal in the Museum District. The owner-host Ufuk Bey is open to menu revisions in multiple languages.

Late one evening, tired from a full day of sightseeing and walking about in Amsterdam, we walked around the block from the flat we had rented to discover this interesting restaurant. We thought to ourselves -- "well, we're in this really multi-cultural city, let's try something very multi-cultural." What a great find. The atmosphere was cordial and quiet and the... More

Fantastic food all fresh products. Starters all beautifully presented with lovely warm bread. Mains all delicious(had lamb, chicken and kofte) hardly anything left by my picky teenagers. Nice decor, and passing the kitchen spotlessly clean. Very highly recommended. 120€ for 4 people, definitely good portions.. We were well fed. Near rijksmuseum and Van Gogh within easy walking distance.

Location is near the Museums, the food is just great. The mezes are first class and high quality and the main dishes are really tasty, fresh ingredients, and very adequate portions. We chose the chicken and did this two nights in quick succession. We enjoyed the food and recommend this place very highly. An added bonus is a very quiet... More
