Lekker afrikaans eten in een über Hollandse setting. Not suitable for tourists as the people only speak Dutch.

Delicious food! Spicy, tasty and well cooked - just go there and taste the Mongozo beer - it tastes at bit like cider! The chicken and beef stew was perfect

Specialising in East African cuisine, Restaurant Azmarino is set in the Pijp district of Amsterdam, near to Sarphatipark and the famous Albert Cuyp market. Dishes at this Amsterdam restaurant are based largely on Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine, with meat dishes of differing strengths of flavour featuring heavily. All are served with vegetables and 'enjera', a typical sourdough pancake. Here, you also eat the traditional way - with only your hands. Also typical of East Africa is the beer, served in a gourd. Arguably one of the more unusual restaurants in Amsterdam, Restaurant Azmarino offers a little taste of Africa in the heart of the city.
