Loved the atmosphere at Levant, the family that operates it were wonderful - attentive in just the right amount. The meal(s! -because in only a 5 day visit, just had to go back again on our last night in Amstrdm) were fabulous, from first course to last! Flavours and spices were direct yet subtle and complex - I will Always... More

We found this cute little restaurant on tripadvisor and it was worth the good reviews! Had a couple of mezes fpr starters, some Köfta for mains and a bottle of great hefty Turkish red wine. Food is Turkish, very good although not mindblowing. The mezes were delicious! Do sit outside on the terrace if you can, it is next to... More

So this was our first trip to Amsterdam and on searching tripadvisor for a resataurant to eat this is what came up as it had fanstastic reviews. This restaurant does not serve Greek food. This is a lie. It serves Turkish food, plays Turkish music and is run by Turks. Not a problem but tripadvisor says that this serves Greek... More

We could view the canal side of Levant's from our B&B, but the street side of the restaurant did not look inviting so we bypassed it the first time. A few days later we decided to give it a try and very glad we did. Excellent food and nice decor inside along with a friendly staff.

Very close to the Museumplein. Eat in the garden bordering the canal if possible. Delicious starters and a nice range of well-prepared Turkish entrees beyond the usual casual fare.

All Accompanied with very good turkish rose wine. Listen to the resturant staff recomendations you'll not be disappointed. Ask to sit in the garden balcony next to the canal, eating there... More

My wife and I made a reservation for our first night on our recent trip to Amsterdam. It was such an outstanding experience that we immediately made a reservation for our last night in the city. First off, the food is excellent--wonderful mezes and the best grilled fish I've ever eaten. Second, the service is quite good. Third, if the... More

Each time we visit Amsterdam (3/4 times a year) you will find us eating here. The cuisine is genuine Turkish with menu selections that were served to the Ottoman rulers. The duck breast, the mezzes, are wonderful. In the warmer weather there is a terrace on a canal. We love it.

In an area of plentiful restaurants of varying quality I happened upon this restaurant, tipped off by trip advisor and was not disappointed. Pleasant formal restaurant with attentive and welcoming staff, starters of liver and salad good, mains of a type of koftas excellent, a beer and half a carafe of Turkish wine and coffee for less than 40 euros...
