Fenan Klein Afrika is my favorite Amsterdam restaurant. It's especially great for vegetarians and those who love to eat with their hands. When I visit, I always ask the cook to make what's best that evening, specifying vegan, vegetarian, or meat/chicken (I've never had the fish). This is not the type of restaurant to visit when you are in a... More

The first time I went here, about 3 years ago, I fell in love with this restaurant. The atmosphere, the food, the drinks and the type of people that visit it make it a great spot. The bright yellow outside doesn't look attractive, but inside it's cosy and warm. The honey wine tastes nice and I usually try to order... More

Fenan Kein Afrika is a beautiful local restaurant that offers great tasting and healthy food! I especially recommend Hamli on of the specialties. The chef uses healthy ingredients for a more than reasonable price!

Visiting Amsterdam, we stopped in this small restaurant. This was our first experience with African food, for me and my family. We all liked it very much and warmly recommend this address.

It was our first time in such a restaurant and we really loved it. the stuff is really nice and the food was excellent. Also the banana beer and mango beer were very good. Never tried this before. It was a nice experience and will go there again if I come back to amsterdam some time! :)

Never tried Ethiopian food, and it was perfect. The food tasted great, and the service was good. Lots of options for vegeterians. Reccomend the dish with endive leaves.

This was my first encounter with Ethiopian cuisine, and a very positive one. The restaurant was reasonably busy for a Monday evening and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. I only went for a main course that combines several dishes on a couple of flat breads, more like pancakes. All the dishes were delicious and each was very different. It was... More
