We went to bouf 4 times during our long weekend stay, just around the corner. Once was for lynch. Very good bitterballen and service. Twice for a late night drink. One of those, the waitress unfortunately totally forgot us and didn't apologise. The final time was early evening for bitterballen again. So nice. Very warm and welcoming most times. Good... More

Stumbled on this place by accident but would definitely return. Food was imaginative and well-cooked. Wine list was excellent. Service was good even though the place was quite busy.

Bouf is near the Concertgebouw, a fact you should consider when timing your visit. You will have a more relaxed, enjoyable time if you go at 8 or shortly after.

Located opposite the world- famous Concertgebouw and at a stone's throw distance from the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum, this low-key cosy eatery offers very nice food at a decent price. They have special deals for concert- goers, which also means a rapid turnover. They understand that you want to attend your concert on time.

Near the Amsterdam concert hall. Good food and good service. Recommend Thai Beef Salad that day. Yet space is limited, can overheard what others say even you dont want to.

On our way back by bicycle after a meeting, we decided to have lunch in one of the restaurants we passed. Restaurant Bouf is a small nice place near Concertgebouw/Museumplein. I ordered Salade Nicoise and it came with a tuna steak. I loved it! My husband took Croque Madame. Also this place is a good choice before or after a... More

Bouf is about half a block fro the concertgebrouw near the museumplein wich makes it very convenient if you are going to a concert or the museums.. They offer a preconcert menu. Besides the menu they have daily specials.The food was delicious.
