The food is not bad but there is no real kitchen, so it is mostly pre-made. The price is not high but so is the quality.

If you wanna try a different type of food, really taste and flavorful you gotta go to Dabka! I went there with no expectations during lunch and I had a wonderful time. Amazing food, affordable prices and great staff.

I went here to have a quick bite before a Holland football match with 2 friends and was pleasantly surprised by the food, the atmosphere and the service! But let's first talk about the location. The Zeedijk is a street with a reputation of being a bit rough over the past decades but in recent years it has become a... More

I recently visited here with my friend. The food itself was delicious and the staff were warm and friendly. We had the baba ganoush and hummus with some flatbread, of which there was absolutely plenty! We also tried the kibba which was okay but not the best I've had. We also shared a lamb kebab which was delicious and had... More

We stumbled upon this place by chance on Sunday afternoon. We were greeted warmly by the waitress who provided a very efficient service. Food was very delicious and abundantly served.

A great place to sit and enjoy lovely food with friends. Live music being played whilst you eat an array of Lebanese food. The servings are huge so you don't need to add extras to the meal else you'll just end up wasting it. If we were in Amsterdam longer we would definitely visit again.

We were after a quick and light meal so were not disappointed by eating here. They had tables outside and inside. We ordered the mixed grill and a salad to share and there was plenty of food for 2 people. The food was fresh and very tasty; it wasn't over loaded with garlic either, don't get me wrong I like...

The food was great, The location is perfect however The personeel is very unexperienced and not very friendly or helpful. Both waitresses are doing useless stuff while customers are waiting to be served. One of the waitresses completely ignores people. I would say either higher more stuff or give THE ladies Some training . For THE rest food was amazing... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
