Great lunch spot

Fairly cosy restaurant with a good atmosphere. Very nice and varied lunch made with fresh products, at - especially for Amsterdam - a very reasonable price. You can't make reservations for lunch in the weekend, but it (really) only took 10 minutes before we had a table. Tip: don't be surprised if... read more

On April 30, we visited Buffet Van Odette,it was recommended by the Luxe Guide,we were 8 friends travelling together. When we arrived were told they were full and so we waited in the bench outside the restaurant as we were still waiting for 2 other friends to arrive. While waiting, we saw numerous people come by without reservations and yet... More

The restaurant had been recommended to me by a Dutch friend, who had told me the food was amazing. When I arrived, the manager was busy talking to a member of staff and took a while to address myself or the party of three behind me. I was told they didn't really do tables for one, but to wait. Eventually... More

This was a lovely restaurant that my boyfriend and I stumbled on when leaving a tour boat for the museums. The food was simple but very nice and the atmosphere was lovely, we could have stayed here for hours. The coffee was fantastic and the apple strudel/cake was really nice too. If you have time and are in the area... More

We arrived on a thursday around 6 pm without reservation, and got a nice, albeit very small, table for two. The menu consists of some small dishes to share, and some 'normal' plates. This didn't make it easy to decide. We shared a small dish of 'skrei', and I had the ravioli with a green salad. My husband had the... More

This restaurant is filled with charm, great service, and amazing service. One of the juice bars recommended her favorite "local, healthy" spot. We drank fresh squeezed juice before our lunch, I got their famous "salad" which is loaded with lentils, squash, kale, onions, etc and my husband got the steak sandwich - WOW. The fresh made bread and food was... More

The place has a nice ambience, with tables and bar seating. The menu is imaginative, and our dishes were tasty and made with fresh ingredients. The wine by the glass is good value. They have nice desserts. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We will go back next time we are in town.

My husband and I enjoyed 2 brunches and a lovely dinner here in eary December. The food was fresh and delcious. My husband follows a paleo style diet and they happily subbed the potatoes that came with his meal for extra root vegetables, which were delicious.
