Good menu choices, typical Turkish / Greek. Prices about right, 5 people starter, main, and drinks €140. Fast service, although it was quiet. However, be aware that like many restaurants in Holland they only accept Dutch payment cards. Recommended

"Divan" is a surprise. We went there with friends and ordered a lot of different and delicious plates that we were able to share altogether. Great Turkish red wine and such a wonderful service ! Definitely worth a visit, you will love it.

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.
