In Amsterdam for a long weekend after business in Den Haag. Walking through the Jordaan and stopped quite randomly here for dinner. Welcomed warmly. But, the food. Wonderous warm bread. Great dips. Then lamb and aubergine with a side of perfectly cooked rice. The first...More

We have been a semi regular visitor of this family owned restaurant since 2000 when I was introduced to it by a colleague. Looking back, we have always had friendly service and great food. My favorite dish is probably the shepard's dish, but be sure...More

We enjoyed a very pleasant evening meal at Divan. We chose from the appetiser mezzes and some mains; dips, kofte, chicken and broad beans were some of the highlights, accompanied by a quite decent Turkish red wine, Kalecik Karasi 2014. Recommended

Most gorgeous Turkish food. The slow roasted lamb was to die for and the dish of lamb with aubergine was delicious. Great atmosphere and excellent service from friendly staff. The only shock came at the end when it turned out they only took Dutch credit...More

Divan is an Amsterdam gem. Turkish kitchen at its best in setup of a dutch brown bar. When you finish eating, you feel content, like eating a meal from grandma. The family running this restaurant cares about the food and cares about the clients. Highly...More

Nice little Turkish restaurant off the Keizergracht. We had the mixed mezes and every dish was lovely (although I could have lived without the beans). Wine was nice too. They don't take visa debit cards but thankfully we had enough cash. If we were staying...More

We enjoyed the vegetarian mezze and it was completely delicious. Very gentle, efficient service with a nice mix of music to chill you out. All in all, excellent.

Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
