7 X the best lebanese restaurants in Amsterdam


Middle East meets Mokum is the slogan of MITTS on Javastraat in East. A cosy, slightly hipper spot than most Lebanese restaurants in Amsterdam. On the menu, you’ll find the tastiest Lebanese dishes like hummus with pine nuts, labneh with roasted beets, roasted cauliflower with pomegranate, and lamb kebab. Perhaps even better, they also serve Lebanese brunch, including shakshuka. Yum!
Javastraat 49, Amsterdam –

Restaurant Beyrouth

The mezze table is very tasty, the service is always warm, and the price-quality ratio is excellent. Among the mezzes, the cauliflower is a favourite. For just €18,- you can enjoy a mezze menu here, with 5 hot and 5 cold mezzes.

Dabka is one of the traditional Lebanese restaurants that Amsterdam has to offer. Named after the Lebanese dance, it features a menu full of classics. The perfect place to acquaint yourself with Lebanese cuisine.
Oudezijds Kolk 69, Amsterdam –

Restaurant Maz Mez

In the same league as Radijs on Jan Evertsenstraat is Maz Mez restaurant. Not hip and trendy, but the food is indeed very tasty! They also have a small terrace in the summer.

The Lebanese Sajeria

At The Lebanese Sajeria, you’re in the right place for Lebanese Manoushe. It’s a kind of Turkish pizza that is rolled up and can have various fillings. Absolutely delicious with halloumi, labneh, or other toppings. Also, great for on the go or on a sunny day in the park! Read the detailed article here >>

This reader’s favourite couldn’t be left out of the list. The Purmerend branch was particularly mentioned, but the newest restaurant on Leidseplein is also a winner. Enjoy a variety of favourites from the Lebanese kitchen, such as red lentil soup, hummus, and charcoal-grilled meat.
Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 11-H, Amsterdam –


Among the Lebanese restaurants in Amsterdam, Cedars may not be the cheapest, but it truly has a unique location. In the summer, you can sit by the water and enjoy the surroundings. And let’s be honest, with a bit of imagination, you can feel like you’re far outside Amsterdam.
