I went with a bigger group and we were told the set menu was EUR 25 per person. We drank house wine and water and ended up paying EUR 45 per person. The mezze were just fine, the main course did not have much taste. Baklava was dry.

I came to know about Artist from a friend who is living in the same area. We decided to dine out one day, and since this restaurant is serving Middle Eastern food, I decided to give it a try. My first impression about the place was positive, the location of the restaurant is on a corner near Sarphatipark. Very nice... More

Food is fine, the owner tries to push you to the menu, that can be a good option or not, but if not sure, you'll have to insist to order what you really want to try. Nice atmosphere, the staff is kind, but DO NOT DRINK the wine already on the table.. better go for a beer, tea, wine, anything... More

Visited for dinner on a busy evening, had to wait a bit for a table, but I have been friendly welcomed and offered a tea while waiting. Food was extremely good, being so rare nowadays to find authetic flavours from the Middle East. I really recommend the chicken skewers and the perfect seasoned tabbouleh (I just felt like I was...

What a lucky find this was. The owner/chef was charming and extremely helpful. He asked us our food likes and dislikes and then suggested a selection of different mezze dishes - all of which were lovely. Good wines and complimentary baklava made it a great experience.

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.

Neighbourhood 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.
