I had a lovely meeting at the bar where we drank some beers and had a nice chat with the owner. Very nice staff and just a 'gezellige' athmosphere. The dinner we had afterwards was good, enjoying the rare view from our table.

As we were staying not far from Amstel station and not wishing to eat a large evening meal, we found De Omval Cafe close to our hotel. There was a lovely atmosphere with a local party enjoying a birthday drink & meal. We enjoyed a drink & main course each & a shared desert which was all good. All in,... More

I keep coming back to this place: easy to park, good view, nice food, friendly service -- always a good experience. Needs just that little extra to merit 4 out of 5.

We had dinner here on our last night in Amsterdam. The food and service was good, and the prices quite reasonable for somewhere so close to Amstel station. There was a good atmosphere in the place. It was a little noisy due to loud music - we were there quite late.

Good food against fair price. There are offices of Delta Lloyd, Rabobank, Philips and Derks Star Bussman in the area so there are a lot of business diners and lunches. Parking is unfortunately a challenge but close to Amstel Station. Near to Amstel river so in summer nice to sit near the river.

Calm and friendly small café/restaurant with beautiful view over the canals Weespertrekvaart and the Amstel. Seems like old Amsterdam, there were Rembrandt has made his sketches. Walking distance from Amstel station (trains, subway), bike rental.

Cafe De Omval is closely located towards Amsterdam Amstel Station. From the train you can easily recognize the Mc Gregor billboards, that is covering the entire facade. Recently i had a business lunch and enjoyed a pomodore soup, which was not very tasty. I suppose the Omval is used during daytime for mostly business lunches, because it is closely located... More

Prior to our home-exchange nearby, from Newcastle, UK, we found de Omval and gave it a try. We couldn't believe our luck. It has it all. Very good food - the rib-eye steak was just excellent - friendly staff and a lively, buzzing atmosphere, especially when the local offices decide to visit for after work drinks. We enjoyed it so...

De Omval is located in the vicinity of Amsterdam Amstel station and the Amstel Business Parc. Situated at the waterside with a nice view. You are wellcome for just a beer or a good cup of coffee but we also serve good quality food for both lunch and diner.
