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.

While we use Tripadvisor for many of our plans, we found ourselves in a neighborhood that we did not plan for. We had a GREAT meal here at Divan and were not surprised to see such high ratings on Tripadvisor. We frequent Turkish/Mediterranean restaurants and Divan was great. We especially enjoyed the small tapas style dishes that we shared. The... More

Real friendly resturant with great food. Seems to be run by a family. The lamb is excelent and the prices are good, around 20 euro for a main dish.

Went here with a family group and had a great meal. Plenty of food and quality dishes. Seemed a family restaurant as everything had to go through the lady at the front (might have been a language barrier to be fair) but slow service made up with smiles and good food.

Divan is one of the best places outside Turkey to enjoy authentic Turkish kitchen! It is hard to say what is better...as it is family owned...the warm and amiable service or the excellent food...enjoy both!

The meal we had in Divan was exceptional - lovely atmosphere and staff too. Couldn't reccomend it more to other couples or great for families too!

Went on Friday night, but place was empty. Food was really good, but atmosphere and service was just ok. But we go to a restaurant not only for food... Wouldn't come back there, hope to find better Turkish place in Amsterdam!
