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.

We visited for a lovely lunch and plan to go back again. Lucas, our charming server, described the menu for us and we appreciated his help making our choices. My husband loved the mussels and shrimp dish. The sauce was wonderful. My ravioli was exquisite. There was a slight tangy cheese taste. The other people working at the restaurant were... More
