Bazar offers really delicious North African cuisine on a grand scale and for a very reasonable price. Although the surroundings are somewhat palatial, the atmosphere is informal and relaxed, and the service attentive without being overwhelming. During the week the Albert Cyup Straat is home to Amsterdam's busiest market and, stepping directly out of that into Bazar, is vaguely reminiscent of my visits to Moroccan souks. This is a wonderful place for lovers of fish, chicken, and lamb, although vegetarian dishes and salads are available. The soups are especially tasty, as is the Tagine. If you are not that hungry during the day this is still a fun place to visit for a coffee and cake. A unique and enjoyable dining experience in Amsterdam.
