They don't serve bacon - only with omelette. No croissants. No beans. What was good - clean and cozy place. If the above food selection isn't important, than you'll enjoy it.

We came here just because we passed the area and were absolutely blown away. The Fleming meatloaf (perhaps a disgusting name) was soooo delicious. It was topped with bacon and served with great brown bread and a salad with beets and pomegranates. My wife's mackerel sald *again perhaps a disgusting sounding name) was a lot like a nice spicy tuna... More

A friendly restaurant overlooking the canal whose popularity seems to be based on its top qulaity fresh food and welcoming atmosphere that you can enjoy as soon as you walk in. Some tables outside let you catch the sun and watch the passers by. The food is all freshly made in house- think tasty salads, wholesome cakes and well made... More

Lunch at Buffet van Odette was wonderful. The menu changes regularly and has a range of creative options. The atmosphere was cozy and staff were very friendly and accommodating. We caught up with a friend we hand't seen for a long time, so we lingered over lunch for a couple of hours. This didn't bother the staff at all. Prices... More

Our family of four was visiting Amsterdam and looking for a nice lunch after visiting the Rijksmuseum and shopping in the area by the canals. A neighbourhood coffee shop recommended the Buffet and we were very happy with our experience. The restaurant is conveniently located, clean and the staff was friendly. The food was delicious and healthy. My daughter and... More

Found this place by accident near Rijkmuseum. Had lunch with our two kids - 11 and 14. Coffee was very good. Service was excellent. Food was good and very healthy. We had the salmon, fish, and beef salads. Fresh ingredients. Great beet root. Lentil base is not for everyone but we really enjoyed it. Highly recommend.

Came here for some wine and cheese to celebrate a friend's birthday- both were good. They have a nice outdoor seating area with heaters that overlooks the canal. The place is cute and comfortable and mostly filled with locals. If you want to try this place I would try calling in to make a reservation. We tried to go in... More

I gave this place three chances, 3 different occasions. Because I wanted it to be good. And partly it is... The location is great, you can have lunch next to the canals. The food is nice - if they have what you planned to choose (twice did not have what we were asking for). But the level of service... the... More
