Delicious Lebanese food in cool location

We shared the lebanese pizza with sheep cheese and the falafel sandwich with hummus and it was awesome. Very well spiced, good portions for the price. It's right next to a canal, so you can see boats drive by and even the port. Not too far from the red light district! The staff is very friendly.

Tasty flavors of lebanese cusine. Good service. It´s nice to sit next to the canal - but expect it can be noisy in the evening. Do not go here for your candlelight dinner - but instead for a quick dinner before heading for the nightlife.

For 20 € huge portion of very good grilled fish and perfect fryer vegetables with salad and nice "soft bread". Nice atmosphere and close to the station.

Its ironic that we ate so much of Thai, middle-eastern/Indonesian food in Amsterdam but we did and loved it. This place was fabulous. The servers were so friendly and helpful and the food completely fresh. Whether you like meat or a veggie person, there is something for everyone. Great!

I ate the Goat Cheese dish with salad and rice, Lebonese red wine and Baclawa for dessert. Food was nicely prepared and well presented. Facility is cozy and clean.

We went for dinner on a Sunday evening at ca 1930h and we had no problem getting a table. Service is friendly and the atmosphere is "bistro" like (wooden tables, paper napkins, etc). We had the mixed mezze, lentil soup and the lamb skewer - all the food was good without pretense. Prices are also very fair. All in all,... More

Enjoyed a meal here. Had the meze starter and then shared chicken skewers and lamb kofta. We've had better starters but main courses good and portions large. Service ok, a little disappointed that main course arrived so quickly after starters finished - the table next to us were still eating their starters when their mains arrived. All spotlessly clean -... More

We decided to eat here by change and it totally worth the visit! The owner was really friendly and helpful, and since we are vegan he suggest us to take the falafel that were really good and a tasty lebanese pizza. I'd recommend this place! Thanks

My husband and i had a fantastic meal in this lovely Lebanees restaurant. The food was authentic and very fresh. We have lived in Damascus for years and the taste took me back to that time. It turned out that the chefs were from Damascus. The service was very good and the place was cosy and clean. I am so... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
