Foods are fine. Drinks have lots of choice. Nice service. A small garden was half surrounded by the restaurant. Music was nice and make customer feel comfortable.

It was a lovely atmosphere and our best meal of a long weekend - they even produced a birthday sparkler on a cake - thanks guys loved it

A wonderful evening for 20 of us. Food was amazing, when they say they can cater for groups with a number of dietary requirements they really can! Also good for smaller parties I would recommend this to anyone. Service was top drawer, food was fantastic and wine was reasonably priced. what more could you wish for??

My favorite place to have a drink or a bite in neightbourhood De Pijp. Why? The owner is just such a passionate and lovely host. Truly cares for good service and a lovely atmosphere.

A Turkish restaurant with typical Turkish food, good service and real mint tea and a pleasant atmosphere. If you're staying in the area, it's worth a visit.

Staying in De Pijp

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.
