We came across this unsophisticated restaurant purely by chance and were so pleased that we had. It has a nice atmosphere, the food and red wine were simple but delicious and the family members who attended to us were very charming, friendly & efficient. We really couldn't fault it. Three courses and a carafe of wine came to around €60... More

"Divan" is a surprise. We went there with friends and ordered a lot of different and delicious plates that we were able to share altogether. Great Turkish red wine and such a wonderful service ! Definitely worth a visit, you will love it.

We stumbled upon this restaurant one evening in Amsterdam after a few drinks in the Jordaan district. We ordered a mix of the half plates which we shared and some seasonal beer. Pros: yummy Turkish food (stuffed mushrooms favourite of the night) good friendly service, good value for money and cosy atmosphere.

Having read the other reviews on this restaurant, I wouldn't have believed it to be the same place. Don't get me wrong, it was ok, but having been in Turkey many times, I found the food to be a little disappointing. It was acceptable, but nothing overly spectacular. Perhaps we hit there on a bad night, as the service was... More

Not just my words, but the words of one who lived 8 years in Turkey. Family run Turkish restaurant and cafe. We were there a couple of years ago, and were very impressed by the genuine Turkish cooking. We came back now and were pleased to find that our first impression was correct. Divan is placed just outside the most... More

We were in Amsterdam looking for somewhere to eat that would please vegetarians and non vegetarians alike. Divan fit perfectly! It was warm and cozy on a chilly, rainy evening, the staff was friendly and welcoming, and there was a pleasant, lively but quiet enough to chat atmosphere. We opted for the array of Meze, all vegetarian, and ordered kebabs... More

Tucked away by one of the outer canal rings around the centre, this a good quality turkish bar/restaurant with a quiet atmosphere and a very friendly lady owner/manager. The Meze dish she selected for me was both tasty and filling, and the cold glass of Effes went down very well in the summer humidity! I think the prices are a... More

we stayed in Amsterdam 10 days and this was by far some of the tastiest food we had. We decided to try a bunch of small places. We chose the ones we wanted rather than go for the chef choice. We had -Mantar Dolmasi - stuffed mushrooms with feta and wallnuts. I could have eaten it all to myself. -... More

This family run restaurant is a true gem in the Jordaan area. The menu offers mezze, typical Turkish dishes and , quite unique, Ottoman dishes, to be ordered in advance. Readily available and top of their culinary bill is "Ali Nazik". Try it and you will never forget it! Love, Peggy, Erik, Sebastiaan.
