We had a very nice lunch on our first day in Amsterdam. The staff is super friendly and make you feel comfortable, despite no reservation. The place is small but the food more than makes up for it. We had the Flemish meatloaf & ravioli and ended with brownie and sticky toffee cake. Everything was delicious and so fresh. Loved... More

This is a nice small restaurant (brasserie) where one can sit outside (if you find a place) right on the canal. Menu is not that big. I had the fish which was excellent. It was close to our hotel and we gave it a shot and did not get disappointed.

We got here based on the reviews. For some reason we were expecting to find a buffet to choose from (maybe because of the name?). Anyway, there was no buffet. The menu doesn't have many options but what it offers is good and tasty. Good espresso as well Very friendly service No waiting time

A restaurant so good that we ate there twice when we were in Amsterdam. We "lucked" upon Buffet Van Odette while waiting for a canal tour. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Ask for the special of the evening. I had what they were offering twice. The brownie dessert was fantastic.

Came here last night for dinner and while menu selection is small the quality is outstanding. I had the sea bass with polenta and it was cooked to perfection and the polenta was delicious/ creamy and probably the best version I have had. My husband ordered the cheese ravioli it was equally delicious. The cheese was amazing!! Food came out... More

The food is fresh, good and healthy (in that order). No wonder the tourists come flocking in. Nice service. Clean bright ambiance. Cosmopolitan.

It was recommended to us by a local as a place to get great food with local flavours. We went there for a late lunch , early dinner and just on time because this place can get crowded. They have a small, but eclectic menu and each dish is perfect. We got a bottle of white wine, and I tried... More

This is a charming small place on a corner on the Prinzengracht. The menu is fairly limited but has well done Dutch items which we enjoyed. They have a few tables outside but we sat inside, March weather in Holland such as it is, but the large windows let in lots of light and the ambiance is very pleasant. This... More

The Buffet van Odette is a lovely, light airy feel to its interior and with a few tables outside overlook the canal on Prinsengracht. Stopped there for a quite bite while out cycling round the city on a Sunday afternoon. Had looked in on the Saturday night but it was fully booked and bustling with a mixture of locals and... More

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)!
