This is a charming small place on a corner on the Prinzengracht. The menu is fairly limited but has well done Dutch items which we enjoyed. They have a few tables outside but we sat inside, March weather in Holland such as it is, but the large windows let in lots of light and the ambiance is very pleasant. This... More

The Buffet van Odette is a lovely, light airy feel to its interior and with a few tables outside overlook the canal on Prinsengracht. Stopped there for a quite bite while out cycling round the city on a Sunday afternoon. Had looked in on the Saturday night but it was fully booked and bustling with a mixture of locals and... More

Like others, we were fortunate to stumble into Odette, hungry after a late arrival. Although the restaurant was full, we pleaded and the kind waitstaff graciously seated us at a lovely table overlooking the canal and served us a delicious charcuterie plate and interesting wines. Gracious as the chef was indeed busy- we watched him through the window- but as... More

Lovely location along the canal. The choice of food and drink was impressive. The lentil soup was to die for. Great wine too.

We came here at 4pm, the place was open and full of people, but we were told that it's closed! and will be open again at 5:30. Very strange 😐

Pros: Good environment Cons: The food is too expensive for the quality you get. In addition, right after eating the desert, we were asked to leave because the restaurant was full and they needed the table. Even though we understood the situation, we considered it a bit rude.

Went to this place because it was recommended by Rick Steves. The food was nice and fresh but nothing too fancy or unique. Also our server just left partway through our meal without telling us. No one came to check on us for a least an hour. We had to wave someone down to get dessert. I think we could... More

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)!
