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... read 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. We couldn't identify some of the vegetables and the waitress told us they were... More

Buffet Van Odette is the perfect choice for a brunch over the weekend as well as during weekdays! The salmon salad especially is extremely delicious! Really tasty and very well composed! Good priced and a very lively environment! Very pictoresque too as it has big windows from which you can observe the typical Amsterdam life.. great cakes too!

I had lunch and dinner at this cafe, and was much more impressed with the food and service at lunch, when I sat outside by the canal for an excellent spinach and goat's cheese quiche with beetroot, lentils and mesclun (10.75€) and a glass of merlot (4€). For dinner, on another day, I chose the lemon thyme chicken with baby... More

A very nice discovery on Prinsengracht, where I enjoyed an excellent macchiato and carrot cake. I said 'home-made' in the title but didnt actually asked whether they were home-made - it did really look and taste like it though! Friendly service in a bright and modern decor, great location close to city center, would definitely recommend it.

This restaurant has it all - a steady volume of tourists and perhaps a few locals/easy access and wonderful outlook over the canal but is woeful in its service. It is not often that you have to chase your order 3 times and are not clear who is looking after you but that was our experience. A change of management... More

We had great salmon and scrambled eggs here. The service is a little slow, but it was very busy when we were there, so some slowness was understandable. We enjoyed it and would return.
