We arrived without reservations shortly after 5:00 pm and the place was bustling. They accommodated us and asked that we vacate by 7:30 which was not a problem. It has a really good vibe - a small delicious menu and reasonably priced-

Fantastic omelet! We also lived the much room stew and ravioli. The sparkling chenin blanc was delicious. But the omelet was perfectly cooked with lots of cheese and mayo in the side.

We had a great experience at Buffet van Odette, very nice caponata and polenta, nice sardines and nice omlette but did not taste enough truffle.

Make a reservation because there is a good reason this is crowded. Small place so noisy but the service and food were excellent. There were three of us and we all loved our meals. It’s casual and seemed to be a lot of locals there...More

We enjoyed the charming atmosphere of B v O. The food was very tasty. I'd suggest having an entree and main as the main portion size was small. We had good and friendly service and would return.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
