The owner greeted us on our first visit. The food was Turkish and as well as other mid-eastern food. We enjoyed ourselves, and heard people saying they were return customers. The owner even gave us Turkish coffee which was not on the menu. A wonderful dinner.

We arrived in Amsterdam on a Sunday evening and just needed a convenient place to eat near where we are staying. The Restaurant Olijfje was the nearest place so in we went. It was packed,but they made space for us, and we were delighted with our meal. I had the red lentil soup, and my partner had their home made hummus. They had also given us a dish of olives and aioli, by which time we almost didn't need our mains! My lamb with aubergine, zucchini, onion etc looked great and was just delicious; a truly lovely home-cooked dish. My partner had a kind of mixed grill, with lamb and chicken kebabs, lamb cutlet etc. Our meals came with rice, salad and chips but we couldn't do justice to them. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is a lovely place to eat out. I definitely would recommend it.

The people were very nice and the food was all handmade, with great attention to detail. The dishes were very good - especially the grilled vegetables and hummus ... not all of it was the best tapas I've ever had but it was very well done with great presentation and very generous.

I appreciated the helpful, kind staff!

The place was crowded, even on a week-night - we had to wait nearly an hour. Do make reservations for sure!

We found this restaurant when we had to entertain guests who requested halal/kosher food. We had the tapas, fish and chicken. We are no experts on originality of taste, but we liked it very much.

Parking is very convenient, at the Markenhoven parking garage (access from Anne Frankstraat) with an exit door very near the restaurant.
