The restaurant was busy on the Saturday night and stayed so after 9 (late for Amsterdam). It was a fun atmosphere with friendly staff. The Turkish menu suited both meat eaters and vegetarians well. There was a reasonable selection of wine at different prices and a good choice of tasty food, with excellent flatbread.

The selection of mezze to share for 2 or 3 people is a very good, delicious value for price choice (€34, and €49, respectively). We spent three hours over there, utterly delighted by the 10-12 small dishes they brought us. They have a good selection of Turkish wines, if you fancy that, at €20-30 the bottle. And Turkish coffee and... More

If you like mezes and great grilled fishes this is the place to go. The owner is very friendly! The mezes are delicious and it is not expensive.

I'm just finished a very tortuous and long trip. Tired. Starving. Jet lagged. Wandering around, saw the other reviews and decided to give it a shot. 1) Efes beer is delicious. 2) the mixed grill was out of this world - maybe the best I've ever had. 3) same for the Greek salad 4) my waitress was amazing. I had... More

The image of Turkish restaurants in Europe is largely dominated by on-the-go Doner Kebap. If this is what you are looking for, Orontes is not the place you are looking for. The name of the restaurant refers to a river reaching the Mediterranean in the Antalya region, and the restaurant specializes on dishes from that region. A true highlight, a... More

The dishes are very good: the tastes is exactly the one that I am used when travelling in the mediterranean, the price is well in line with the restaurants around (and in general, in the Netherlands). The lamb chops were superb. Furthermore, the kitchen closes a bit later than other restaurant in the netherlands. I would go there again.

I went there with my husband and we loved it. The place is very simple and cozy, with photographs from 1980s in Istanbul hanging on the wall. The food was absolutely great, full of flavour and the service was good. We had cheese sigara, baba ganouch, oruk, lamb skewers and dorade fish, served with complimentary fresh baked bread. And of...

We were looking for a pleasant and calm place to dine after a small walk... 3 restaurants afterwards, all with closed kitchen due to a major game, this was our last try. The place was really calm, with only a few tables occupied, but we were really welcomed. We had a delicious meal, and stayed until quite late having drinks.... More

Lentil soup was delicious. Service was good. Server very pleasant. It seemed to have a lot of locals eating there and we enjoyed that as well.

Really had a mixed experience here, which hesitates me from recommending to go back... Pro's - - Able to adjust reservation at last minute from 4 to 6 people - Food was pretty good (fish tasty), mains were large (but starters small) - Value for money is reasonable (we tried the house Turkish white, surprisingly good) Con's - - Service...
