Description: 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)!

Reviewed August 11, 2013

Steak and chicken were so delicious but waiting for the dishes is another story. Very slow service but the wait staff are friendly and pleasant. The cheese plate was really tasty but not big enough to subside our hunger while waiting 40 min for the main dish. Even the apple pie took about 15 min just to get warmed up. The quality of food and the location was really good and we enjoyed our dinner but I hope they hire more staff to speed things up a bit. Recommend it though.

“Where is the quality of the old Buffet van Odette gone..?”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

After 5 years re-visiting Buffet van Odette at the new location. The old location was really nice, good food and service. We visited this morning and really disappointing: slow service, only few guests but staff quite arrogant and very busy with themselves, food was so-so (omelette at home is better and far more cheaper), wifi didn't work (they said they would fix it but never happened). For 4 people coffee+ breakfast for EUR 60 is a lot and next time would love to spend it at a better place...Dear Odette..have you lost your charming during your moving...!?

“Perfect place for lunch while shopping in Amsterdam.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Got stuck here because of heavy rain. Nice people, good service which is quite exceptional in Amsterdam. Good food, interesting menu and wines. Everything biological. If it doesn't rain you can sit outside on the small but cosy terrace with a view on the Prinsengracht.

“Name changed”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

This is no longer Café Van Odette and hasnt been named that for over two years now! However as "Too's & Roo's" it is a wonderful place to sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere of the "9 little streets". The food is very nice too!

“Slow Service”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Was the first for breakfast when they opened at 10am; ordered straight away bot it took 30 minutes for toasted raisin bread and scrambled eggs. More expensive than a lot of other places which are better.
