Description: 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)!

'Odette' turned out a dissapointment: apparently there have been better days but they for sure have gone. The 'buffet' part is no longer offered for diner, the rest of the menu is at best called average, portions are small, and there isn't much choice in fresh veggies. Staff and service are aloof and sloppy which makes a curious combination. Last but not least: prices are high.

If you go right after od during your visit of the Rijks you cross the street and enter into the Spiegelgracht. After a very pleasant walk along the speciality shops you come to the corner of the Prinsengracht: here you'll find Buffet van Odette.
A pleasant place with very friendly and attentive staff and good food, tasty and well prepared.
We had lunch there and have enjoyed it very much!

Delicious quiche and sandwiches, great quality food and a good value, highly recommend! Sitting outside for Sunday brunch was one of the highlights of our trip to Amsterdam!

Having just come off one of the canal boats and in transit to the Rijksmuseum, we needed a place to sit and have lunch. Passing a few places as not looking appealing, we settled on this place. What a pleasant surprise. It did take awhile for the waitress to assist, but once she got started, she was most helpful. The food was very good. The house white wine was perfect for our meal. Coffee afterward was strong and hot. We would definitely go back there.
