This place feels like a cafeteria, but forget about over-cooked pasta, what you are getting there is a wide selection of sandwhiches, salads, woks and every freshly grilled dishes. The place is a but busy and gets very crowded at lunch-time, but it's well worth it to get fresh and good food like this. Definitely a good options if you... More

La Place has a few outlets in Amsterdam and the freshness of the food and produce is amazing. The prices are very good too but the layout, presentation and flavour of the food is beautiful. When we were there they didn't open until 11:00am on Mondays but it was worth the wait for a very tasty lunch. It does get... More

It's like a cafeteria except you can get food made-to- order. I had a pizza for €9.95; my wife had a big salad that was pay-by-weight. Quality: excellent Price: competitive ($$) Service: mostly self- If you are looking for good food that is quick and won't break the bank, this is La Place.

Food was really yummy, but it wasn't cheap. Staff was not friendly and you had to pay for toilet ( 0.25 euro ). It was my first visit and also my last, because it's not worth to pay so much for such poor service.

Stopped in here, finally. I bought a huge slice of pizza for a late night bite to keep in my hotel room. The pizza, which I took away and ate, cold, was delicious. The service at the till was warm and helpful. The next day I went back to get some goodies for my plane ride the next day. Again,... More

We were limited on time, but the tomato and basil soup that we ate for lunch was divine. It's a really interesting concept, with lots of different counters and a huge amount of choice but was definitely a bit chaotic and people had no qualms clattering into other people who were trying to balance trays of food! It's cafeteria style,... More

We've lived in the Netherlands a couple of times. The second time we discovered La Place which was (still is?) part of Vroom & Dreesmann, the large chain of department stores. It was a revelation, quite like unlike anything we had in the UK. And it's still like that! Beautiful displays of sandwiches, salads, pizzas, wok-type foods etc etc. First... More

I have been a regular visitor to this place for well over a decade now, just having discovered it when they had a small street pavement terrace on the front. That's what "lured" me in and then was surprised at the quantity and quality of what they have and for such a low price. The queues of course testify to... More

Amazing selection of food. So hard to decide what to eat. We got several things and shared them. Everything was fresh, well prepared and tasty. Prices were reasonable.
