After walking around this picturesque village we stopped here for lunch. The restaurant is situated on the bank of the river. There is a nice sitting area outside, but eating inside is just as good. The waitresses are very attentive. Their English is somewhat limited but they try their best. We tried the fish salad, tuna melt, three bruschettas, and... More

I am a frequent visitor of De Oude Smidse. Today here with my uncle to have a few beers and some tapas. The staff is always friendly, the tapas are nice, and when you decide to have lunch or dinner here, you'll never be disappointed. Try the "eendeborst met eendebout met zuurkool" this is my favourite. Juicy and very tasteful... More

During a visit to Amsterdam for an exposition we went for 15 min outside Amstelveen to this restaurant located in a quint city at a fantastic location at the water. The food is great, one of my companions had a steak and he said that it was the best he had been served in a long time. The oxtail soup... More

The staff is not helpfull and caring. The food is too expensive for the quality. Is is such a shame, since this location ( especially the terrace ) is excellent and the place has so much potential

I had a wonderful lunch with a friend there, sitting outside in a lovely day. Loved the steak! It was tender and juicy. Service and food was wonderful. Looking forward to be there again.

The restaurant is located in Ouderkerk a/d Amstel overlooking the river Amstel. The ambiance is pleasant , the service good and friendly. We were given a table where we could talk business without disturbing the other guests.

We were three on a sunny Sunday. The Oude Smidse is in a lovely place on the river banks, close to the bridge in a picturesque village. Very Dutch, beautiful and quiet. Food was tasty and the service good. Deserves a visit.

Came along here to get some respite fro an evening in Schiphol due to an early morning departure. After a 20 minute bus ride on the 300 (service every 10 minutes fro the Schiphol bus station) a short walk brings you in to the village, which is extremely picture book. The restaurant / pub is just over the canal bridge,... More
