Our food was fresh, plentiful, and tasty. I decided not to give them an average rating, because it was better than that, but not as flavorful as the food in Greece or Turkey. Service was great and the cost was reasonable.

The food served here is Mediterranean/Turkish - very tasty, freshly cooked, good selection on menu, very reasonable priced. Restaurant busy even on a mid-week evening, but reservation not required on the night we visited. Service friendly and efficient, very nice house wine too! Can highly recommend this restaurant and will certainly go back.

This is a lovely restaurant with a really good menu. We chose the mixed meze which had a range of cold and hot dishes - all of them were delicious and the mussels were outstanding. There is a decent and reasonably priced house wine. Service was very good. Highly recommended!

Great family restaurant with lovingly crafted meals. Far from the maddening crowd and all the better for it. Service is friendly and included some free baba ganoush. Wish they had cousins that lived in NYC!!

This little and cozy restaurant is one of the best places I have been for dinner. Nice and relaxed atmosphere, great and very friendly service. Our waiter Marek advised us the best options and took care of all small details during dinner. You can tell by the balance of flavors that the food has been prepared with the heart. Very... More

Excellent meal at this wonderful little restaurant. Service was very good. A no-frills but pleasant atmosphere--and the food certainly makes it worth seeking out. We had the lamb chops recommended by others and were not disappointed.

Just off the Albert Cuyp market, you’ll find this tiny family restaurant serving authentic Turkish dishes. First of all, I like this place because of the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I have eaten here several times but our favorite is still the Mezze treat for 2. (Mezze is the Turkish “tapas” ). If you like variation and small portions of... More

Just happened by this restaurant which turned out to be one of our tastiest meals in Amsterdam. Don't normally order lamb, but the lamb chops were some of the best I have ever tasted. Great hummus and very reasonable prices..

Enjoyed good food with colleagues. Had a Beyti ( Lamb ) as a main dish and it was really delicious. Price of the meal was really ok compared to food quality and size of the portions.

Our first experience of Turkish dining. Of the 4 of us 2 had the fixed course selection and 2 ordered a la carte. The lamb is exceptional. Also the filo pastry parcelets. Apart from the food which was excellent, of particular note is the table service; attentive but not overpowering, the ample spaces between tables and overall the simple unobtrusive... More

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
