Paloma Blanca was suggested to us by our hotel clerk. My wife is originally arabic. And we loved the food. To begin, grilled merguez, then tagine fish of the day and Couscous Royal. It is a simple and good price restaurant.

Great service and great atmosphere, you feel like you are in Marrakech not Amsterdam! Food was great, fresh and there was plenty of it. Prices were also very reasonable, a must visit!

This is the best Moroccan restaurant in Amsterdam for sure. The dishes are full of flavor, service excellent and the unknown Moroccan wine is superb.
