“Fantastic brunch/lunch spot, something for everyone!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Never experienced this idea before, large food hall with different stations providing anything from apple pie to Japanese noodles! Just grab a tray and wonder round and pick what you fancy. Fabulous focaccia sandwiches, rustic breads, steaks, salads, hot vegetables, soups, smoothies, wine, coffee, you name it they have it, all freshly prepared good quality ingredients at reasonable prices.
My only gripe is that it is very hectic at busy times and it can be difficult to negotiate a tray of food and drink around such a busy area and also the charge for the toilet, a definite no no, when you have spent money having a meal here!

“Perfect lunch spot which caters for any taste!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

I hadn't been to one of thee cafe before but was taken aback by the selection of food you can get. Lots of fresh healthy and not so healthy treats. Excellent for a break whilst shopping and plenty of space to sit and chat. Perfect location for those who are in a group and want something for everyone.

“It's a great option for a healthy and quick lunch while shopping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

This Restaurant La Place is normally found inside the V & D shops, but I also went to one in the Praxis in Amsterdam zuidost.

There is one in the city where I live, Amstelveen, and my review it is about this one, although the high quality of ingredients and food is similar in all of them.

They have those nice displays with vegetables, juices and food to start with. I like the variety of options available, the grilled options (fish chicken, beef…) and their pea soup that is offered only during the winter. The soup is think as tradition says it should be. The main point for me is that La Place has good quality of ingredients and, since it's a buffet, I can go for a quick sandwich or taking just a bit more time and get a nice grilled fish with vegetables.

Very convenient for a healthy and quick lunch. I never been there for dinner. Actually I think that, except for Thursday when it's late shopping night, the V & D shop and the La Place are closing at 18:00.

“Nice place for a quick lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
