I stumbled upon Cafe De Omval after a jogging run along the canal. The happy gathering of locals enjoying the sunshine and beers by the canal outside the cafe ensured that this venue was on my radar to experience. Alas the sun didn't shine but the cafe made a welcome shelter from a rain. Still lots of affuelent locals enjoying dinner and drinks. I hosted dinner with work colleagues. We received good service from the staff, and the snacks were welcome but not out of this world. It's a great escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown amsterdam and anybody visiting Amstel area, this cafe is a must.

We visited de Omval for lunch with four of us. The restaurant is located in the vicinity of Amstel station and it's a restaurant that you will not just end-up.. you need to know where to find it, but when you do you will enjoy the location next to the canal. Check out the website before you set out to go here.

It's somewhere between a pub and a restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere, a popular place with the locals and people from offices close by.

We were presented with the lunch card. Not that extensive, but carefully selected items.. a main course for every taste (different meats and also vegitarian). The quality of the food was excellent... we ordered four different dishes but all looked excellent and taste excellent... the pasta with basil-cream sauce was seriously impressive... a very pleasant surprise as the food is definitely of high quality restaurant level, something you would not expect when walking into the place.

The only reason why we did not conclude to an overal rating of "Excellent" is that although the staff is friendly, they are not reaching the level of the dishes served.

Will definitely visit again, if you are in the area... enjoy the food here.
