Just the place to get some Arabic food in Amsterdam. Service is good. Staff are friendly. Prices are average. Atmosphere is great.

Not being Lebanese and never been to the country, I can't vouch for the authenticity of the food, but given that what we got was hot, tasty and prompt, we collectively agreed that we'd come back again. The four of us got 2 courses + drinks for 20 euros/head, and was pretty similar cost-wise to other nearby places we tried... More

Good food and good variety. Hummus is really good. The style is a bit touristic and the price is quite high for the quality. 60 euros in two. Good but will not be back.

Watch out: tourist trap. It says so on the menu, you can see it in de decor, you notice it in the way the staff treat you. OK, you get a cheap meal and it's bearable. But it's just that. It's loveless. Plenty of better places around the corner (plenty of other tourist traps too BTW).

What a tourist trap! the food is nothing close to Lebanese food, and it is not even good. If Dabka served unauthentic, good food then I would have been a much happier customer.

I went with a half-Lebanese friend who wanted to show me real Lebanese food. It was delicious! The Lebanese beer was a bit expensive at 5 euros a bottle, but it was good. The food was fresh, portions were big, and everything tasted wonderful. The desert was great as well. The staff were friendly. Great location near central station. Overall... More

Me and my family love Lebanese food, yesterday we went there and we got badly served, the service came in a hurry everytime taking 4 trips just to order drinks right, we asked for Kibbeh as a main dish and got something that resembled a flat Samousa as hard as leather and a sprinkle of grounded meat inside, the meat...

We had a nice lunch here. We took 3 starters, which was way too much. We should have tried the mezze mix.

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner on a Sunday night and had a lovely time. The food is lovely and although we had to send one starter back because it wasn't warm all the way through it was still very tasty and the service was pretty good. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice and relaxed and the... More
