“Nice place for a quick lunch”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We just happened by this place and decided to get a quick bite and something to drink. We both had a nice bowl of oyster and crab soup. It was very tasty. This is a cafeteria-style place, self-serve. We did both say it would be worth going back as there are many, many other choices.

“Busy but good”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

This place offers everything from a drink to a full blown meal. We only had drinks and cakes (three days running). Cakes delicious and lovely hot chocolate made with real chocolate. Plenty of seating, but sometimes have to share a very large table with others.

“Excellent choice, excellent value!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

We enjoyed fresh, flavoursome lunches at La Place on a couple of occasions during our recent stay in Amsterdam. The quality of the food at both the Library and city centre venues is second to none, but if you want a top quality view then choose the library.

“Lots of selection, great value, and great views”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

What a great find at the top of the public library! A self-service dining experience, but the variety of food selection is fantastic - lots of vegetables, salads, pastas, breads, and the cook to order meat were great. The view from the patio is great or eat inside at large communal tables. An unexpected discovery and for the price, it can't be beat.
