Interesting nice place if you eat out. Good food nice area out from turistic route. Prices a little bit high particularly for wine. But we are Italians... Nice lebanese owner

I found this restaurant through TripAdvisor. It had gotten really great reviews. And, I must say, correctly so. My friend and I shared various mezze and they were all really good. 45 euro for two people for a fixed mezze menu. Not bad at all!

Really good food and the owner was a great host. Our table was littered with gorgeous food. The wine and baklava were also really good.

We had no choice for the food, which was just imposed to us. And on top of that it was really over priced and tasted like it has been reheated in the microwave. Quantity was small as well. Very disappointing.

This is one Lebanese/Mediterranean gem hidden in the heart of Amsterdam. The food is amazing, the prices are excellent, and the mood is beautiful. Make sure you meet Simon, he is an excellent gentleman. I will be coming back often.

Food overpriced, service inexistant you do not know what you really get when you order the menu. Wine far too expensive. Bad experience.

We were very dissappointed by this surprisingly well rated restaurant that we visited with a Lebanese guest. The food is not so bad but definitely not prepared the Lebanese way and a significant number of the (imposed) dishes (rice and chicken) were clearly reheated. When you ask for an explanation on the menu, the owner looks you down arguing that... More

I love this place - it's the food, it's the service, it's the kitch decor and the overuse of plants - disclaimer - I lived right near this restaurant and they were like a family away for me - however I've never had Lebanese like Artist and if you ask in advance and organise a night there with a few...

I ate here with some friends, and had a great night! The food was good and fresh, and the service was welcoming, friendly and hospitable. Some small errors were made (we got white wine instead of rose), but it was corrected when we mentioned it. We asked to have veggie mezze for three, without a maincourse because we weren't so...

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.
