Amsterdam for 4 days with my parents

I have read through the most recent Amsterdam threads, but am hoping some fellow Chowhounds can give me some tips on places to take my not-so-adventurous parents for lunches and dinners in Amsterdam in late September? My parents are in their 60s, and are not generally keen on super modern fare, preferring fresh, uncomplicated (comfort) foods. That being said, I'd also like to take them to an Indonesian restaurant since it is something we can't get in Toronto and I'd like them to try it after I raved so much about the food after returning from a trip to Indonesia earlier this year. So an authentic Indonesian restaurant, perhaps family-run, would be great.

We will be staying near the train station, and our budget is 100 euros or thereabouts for dinner (for all three of us), and fifty euros for lunch. Picnic suggestions of good grocers to pick up supplies from would also be welcome! My parents can't walk that far (being on disability), so places nearer to public transit or easily reachable in not so tiring walking stints would be much appreciated.

Thanks so much!
