Found this place by accident near Rijkmuseum. Had lunch with our two kids - 11 and 14. Coffee was very good. Service was excellent. Food was good and very healthy. We had the salmon, fish, and beef salads. Fresh ingredients. Great beet root. Lentil base is not for everyone but we really enjoyed it. Highly recommend.

Came here for some wine and cheese to celebrate a friend's birthday- both were good. They have a nice outdoor seating area with heaters that overlooks the canal. The place is cute and comfortable and mostly filled with locals. If you want to try this place I would try calling in to make a reservation. We tried to go in... More

I gave this place three chances, 3 different occasions. Because I wanted it to be good. And partly it is... The location is great, you can have lunch next to the canals. The food is nice - if they have what you planned to choose (twice did not have what we were asking for). But the level of service... the... More

My wife and I was recommended here by Stuart at Mikes Bike Tours (see review). The cafe had a lovely ambience we sat outside and service was attentive and very friendly I ordered the... More

A very good brunch after a long flight to Amsterdam. Excellent breads, tasty cheese, and great coffee. I loved the cheese omelet with the lemon sauce on the side. The service was slow, but that may have been because of a very large party at another set of tables.

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.

Good food simple ingredients cook with skill. Nice atmosphere beautiful setting. The service is very good and knowledgeable but very Dutch - unpretentious, direct and pragmatic.

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

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)!
