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)!

We had lunch for 3 at this tiny restaurant at a nice location at Prinsengracht.

They have a quite nice menu, wine selection, and very friendly staff.

However, it’s a very small and crowded place, with too small tables very close to each other. And quite warm during lunch time.

It’s almost impossible to have a proper (business) conversation. And the seats and tables are very uncomfortable for more than 30min.

Better visit this place after peak lunch time, or enjoy the outdoor terrace. You might have more space and less noise for a good conversation. In my view not very suitable for families with children.

We had a lovely meal here recently. The restaurant/cafe is cute and quirky with an excellent wine list, marvelously attentive staff and reasonably priced great food.

Good location on the canal. Outdoor seating available. Diverse menu. Food was very good, but pricey. Excellent wait staff. Very popular spot.

Seven of us sitting on rickety chairs in a very crowded restaurant. Lunch menu was mostly eggs. Food came fast, bill came slow. You can’t sit before noon, before they open. It’s just traditional for the Area. Food was tasty but could use more variety. I’d probably eat elsewhere.

We stumbled upon this quaint café on our last night whilst en route to another place for dinner and we thought it looked very charming and inviting.

We popped in to look at the menu but were informed that they weren’t serving food until 5:30pm. It was 5pm so we proceeded on to our original choice but when we got there we decided we didn’t like the look of it so we ventured back here, by which time they were then serving food.

We had really wanted to sit outside by the canal (who wouldn’t?!) but unfortunately there weren’t any empty tables and those that were, were reserved. So we sat inside but then a table suddenly become available so we asked the waiter if we could move outside. I think it was evident to him how desperate we were to sit outside!

The menu is quite limited but at least one dish to appeal to everyone I’d say. I had ravioli and my partner had salmon. The food was very healthy and tasty with good portion sizes.

We were so pleased that we came across it and it was a perfect end to our holiday – a delicious dinner in a beautiful canal setting in one of the nicest areas of town. All the waiting staff were pleasant and friendly as well. Couldn’t fault it.
