My friend suggested me and I've eaten there the first day on my vacation. Then the last day, before I catched my flight I had my breakfast there again. The atmosphere and canal and food are so good.

We have eaten here about 4 times now. Each time we have had good food in a nice environment. The have had the rooster (chicken to everyone else) on a couple of occasions – brilliant. My wife has had various salads and fish dishes equally nice. Highly recommended but book in advance.

A tiny but very nice room, where the crew is young and efficient. Concerning the menu, it's very limited but the dishes are cooked with fresh ingredients and cocktails are good (mimosa and gin tonic). however the dishes are quiet small and the price quiet expensive. So it's a romantic restaurant where it's good to take out your girl/boyfriend without... More

It was Liberation Day and not a table was to be found along the main streets, but we saw a canopy with tables and chairs down the Prinsengracht canal. It was a charming little café with tables available. By that time we were so hungry anything was welcomed. What a delight! I ordered the BLT soup, my husband wanted the... More

My girlfriend and I had a lovely dinner there whilst visiting Amsterdam. The staff were so friendly and the food was fantastic. Just off the tourist drag so more relaxed than the usual spots. Sit outside if you can and overlook the canal.

Had excellent breakfast - poached egg with marmite and tomatoes. It was better than expected and for under 5 bucks! The juice shake with carrot and ginger will burn every germ it comes into contact. Great to kick start beatific mornings in Ams!

We get advised by the French "Guide du Routard" travel book to have a breakfast in this restaurant. And we were not disappointed ! The bread was really excellent, as the strawberry jam was. They both seemed to be homemade. The scrambled eggs were also very good with the mayonnaise. And what about the cappuccino ? Mmmmm, delicious !! One... More

We went to Buffet Van Odette with locals for breakfast on Sunday morning. You have to come very early as it gets busy quickly. I recommend the truffle omelette. Super good. The fresh orange juice and the coffee are good too. The bread is delicious. The restaurant is situated on Prinsengratch but there is no trafic. Very quiet place.

The food was ok. Nothing exceptional but ok. However the service was just terrible. We were seated after asking twice two different people(it wasn't busy, we went for lunch at 3pm). Took forever to get our order taken. Had to ask for bread twice. Were given 2 menus even though 3 of us were seated there, when we asked for... More

This restaurant has a great feeling about it with friendly staff that serve tasty food. The prices are very moderate with medium sized dishes that are excellent for trying out all courses. Great atmosphere inside and outside they have a nice terrace where you can eat and drink along the canal. Inspiring and delicious desserts!

Buffet van Odette is located on a nice and light spot right on the canal. We are open from 10 in the mornig for breakfast, lunch and diner. We use mainly authentic, organic and local product in our kitchen. Our Bocca-coffee is delicious and Direct Trade (even better than Fair Trade)!
