Great salad buffet

Located in the museum district. Good and healthy buffet salad. The half chicken dish for lunch is perfectly roasted. A very nice place to relax after the museum tour.

The place was highly recommended by a friend of ours living in Amsterdam. He recommended any pasta / ravioli dish on the menu and the food was indeed pretty good. We were a bit disappointed by the service though and we felt like we were bothering them. First they refused to let us in with the baby stroller and we... 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

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 you come during peak times with three people... 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
