This restaurant is located in a nice and quiet street in the centre of Amsterdam. Perfect for lunch time, you can enjoy the atmospehre in a lovely small restaurant. Fresh ingredients and good presentation of the plates. Highly recommended for businnes lunch or nice break during your visit in the town.

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

We visited this cafe for lunch twice in our short stay, on a recommendation. The first visit was good, food delicious, not large but satisfying. Staff efficient but not overly friendly. Our second lunch, one of our meals was forgotten (even though our waitress corrected our pronunciation). Overall nice light meals; not overly friendly staff. Nice local spot, canal-side down... More

I had a lovely evening at Buffet van Odette! I was not sure what to expect but the service and the food reached far beyond my expectations. If you want a high class place with a top of the wine list – this is not the place to go. If you want something slightly different with good organic food this... More

In a neighborhood that is overrun with honky-tonk restaurants aimed at a very large tourist population, Odette is a oasis. The food is light and interesting well suited for keeping Amsterdam's in their skinny jeans. We travel with vegetarians who are routinely forced to consume risotto. There was a nice selection of vegetarian options. One thing though that visitors should... More

If the weather is OK, get a table outdoors and watch the world float (or cycle) by. We had a delicious fine dining experience for just under 50 euro per head including a bottle of wine between us. Everything was fresh and tasty, well presented and the service was impeccable. Good choices for gluten free, too. Thoroughly recommended.

Organic and tasty. Located on a canal on a quiet side street. We had the eggplant ravioli and omelet with cheese. Paired with a cold local beer this turned out to be a nice surprise for us that we would highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

We sat at an exterior table. The waitress was welcoming, and a good adviser. The plate of cheese is really nice, the Apple juice is fresh, and the sound of the river relaxing. A nice spot, if you have the time to enjoy it.
