Make sure you have a reservation on Friday-Sunday; otherwise you will have to wait. Other days, no reservations are taken. The changing salads was very fresh and nice. Staff is friendly and cordial; considering how busy they are. Very enjoyable for lunch.

The staff were friendly and the food was an unusual combination of flavours which worked well. It was all very fresh and reasonably priced.

I've eaten at many restaurants in Amsterdam and Buffet Van Odette is one of my favorites. It's little and cozy with the most delightful menu! The mushroom ravioli is one of my absolute favorite items on the menu and when I am not visiting AMS, I find myself craving the dish! I highly recommend this gem! Be warned, it's very... More

We've been to Odette to celebrate my friends birthday. Especially Ovide, (our waitress) was the best! She was immense helpful to be sure that everything went perfect! The lunch we've had was very delicious as well. We ordered the Ravioli and the mussels. All the ingredients were fresh. Thank you very much Ovide and Odette ;) We will be back... More

Showed up here on a Saturday evening and without a reservation, but managed to squeeze into a place at the counter. A little cramped and uncomfortable, but I was pleased to get in on an evening on which the restaurant was turning people away. Had two courses: an appetizer of squid, chickpeas, and crab mayonnaise, followed by the fish of... More

Located in the heart of Amsterdam, this is a very nice and charming restaurant. Luckily not hipster enough to have the average bad Dutch service. Staff is friendly and pays well attention. The cuisine is a nice mixture of French with all european influences. I feel everybody will find something on the menu. The food was really good. I like... More

We visited this restaurant for breakfast. The selection is quite limited, but some dishes look interesting. I had the poached egg, my friend the grapefruit brulée. The grapefruit is healthy and tasty, but impossible to eat with just a spoon. The poached egg is not very inspired. And why do you serve mayonaise with a poached egg? The location is... More

We had a lovely dinner on our first night in Amsterdam. We loved sitting outside (with blankets!), watching the canal and the passersby. Our meal was delicious, including the negronis. The staff are very nice as well.

On our way to our guided tour in the Rijksmuseum, we stopped by the Buffet van Odette for some breakfast and it was delicious. Homemade, smiling service, nice place too, we sat on the terrace by the canal, fresh orange juice and scrambled eggs. Very quiet relaxing place. Would definitely recommend :)

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)!
