3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2014 NEW

The Turkish bread witk aioli was delicious, so also the hummus, tzaziki and the spicy tapenade with peppers and tomatoes. All other tapas/mezze we ordered where deep fried and very fat. For us disappointing. The only bottle of wine that attracted us was sold out. Nice ambiance and friendly staff.

We came to the restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews, and were very disappointed. Every single dish was spicy (except two that were too bland to eat). So for the two members of our party who enjoy spicy food, this was OK. The rest of us (children included) barely had anything to eat, or ate and didn't enjoy it.

This is a tapas restaurant, both Spanish and Middle Eastern. The 10 part m.e. Tapas menu is 30 for two. Quite tasty, at least what I have had.Located near the Stopera, great for an evening out. The service is good, even when they are full, but reserve if you want to be sure of a seat.

The food was absolutely great, no doubt about it. The staff as well - did not find any better in Amsterdam. Only thing was that the music was very weird - too stereotype to my taste (mediteranean music) and the furniture taste was not really my taste - a bit cheap and tacky - esocecially the ceiling. But who cares... More

My husband, youngest daughter and I met a couple of our Dutch friends at Olijfje while visiting Amsterdam. The atmosphere was lively, the food was delicious and the staff was extremely friendly. English menus were provided, which was a great help since my Dutch is not that great. I had the lamb platter over rice, which was flavorful and succulent.... More

We went here over the weekend and the place was absolutely packed. Despite this, both the food and the service was excellent. We both had the sole as a main and it was well cooked and very tasty. Definitely one of the better price/quality picks in Amsterdam!

In a city (Amsterdam) overlarded with gravies, sauces and... get ready for it: Mayonnaise, even on or even especially on French fries... it is beyond a pleasure to find a place where there are individual tastes on an attractively presented platter of tapas, those lovely little portions of goodies one can dip into selectively. On a neat stretch of street... More

I am sick of seeing kebap as the only Turkish cuisine. So this place made me happy with a good variety of Turkish food. The people who work there can speak Turkish very well, they are very polite and nice. I have a meal there only once but it was a very nice one. Pricing is good. We ordered a... More

The owner greeted us on our first visit. The food was Turkish and as well as other mid-eastern food. We enjoyed ourselves, and heard people saying they were return customers. The owner even gave us Turkish coffee which was not on the menu. A wonderful dinner.
