We visited Buuf every morning during our five day stay in Amsterdam. We passed it as my husband was trying to find some top rated place that was impossible to find, and I'm so glad that we did! I had the ham and cheese on brown toast and he had bacon and eggs. The price was fair and the food... More

Great place for a cheap yet great quality dinner. Nicest people and really good fresh meals for around 9€! Highly recommend it!

Very good food and good prices. Yu order and then self service to get your drinks and collect food when ready. Relaxed cool atmosphere. Healthy food and very tasty! A bit far out from the centre of Amsterdam but it was near our hotel, which was good for us to have a place near with very healthy choices. Had lunch... More

Buuf is a restaurant with a small menu that changes every day. Good food for a low price. Nice people. The place is decorated in a 70s style. You can also get take away to picknick in the Vondelpark.

Conveniently located right by our hotel, it was right on the main street and easy to find. We really enjoyed our lunches (although I wish there were a few more choices). All good none the less! Very affordable, great portions, good service!

Slightly retro decor from the 70s using a limited budget, we visited in the evenings and the place felt comfortable and 'lived in'. Seating for about 60 covers, friendly staff and a sytem where you order at the bar, are given a disk with LEDs and when it starts to flash, your order is ready to collect. Most of the... More

The food is really nice and I can fully recommend it. Great, cheap sandwiches just off Vondelpark. However, it appears to be family friendly, but I don't really agree. The "children's corner" is one high chair, old and broken, a couple of painting books, but all the pensils and things to paint with are broken and don't work. Out of... More

I am told "Buuf" is short for neighbor/neighborhood - what an apt name. Great ambiance - like a cool friend's eat in kitchen. Great food, great prices, great people working there. I went back several times while I was in Amsterdam for 3 nights.
