This was one of the first places we ate at arriving in Amsterdam. It has a good location and they were about a block from where we stayed, The Nadia Hotel, and not too far from Anne Frank House. I loved the decor, so Dutch! Lots of wonderful blue and white Dutch designs on all of the walls made for... More

I went here with two friends. It looks nice on the outside but the service is appalling and the food is pretty bad. The pancakes aren't proper Dutch pancakes and they burnt our food. We asked for tap water and got told that they weren't allowed to give us any - seems ridiculous seeing as we were eating and paying... More

Been there last december with some friends. the place looked very inviting from the outside, but service offered inside was just appalling. It took ages to be served, the person who was serving us disappeared halfway through our meal - he went on his break. The cook was the server who took our payment who was extremely rude (blond young-ish... More

The food was average and the price was about €1-2 above other pancakes houses I visited with tastier food. The service was ok but just two staff in the whole place and the cook not that friendly to customers. It's about €8 for a plain sugar and lemon pancake where others were €6.50. I had a waffle with banana, Nutella... More

Located just a few steps from the hop on/off boat, we were excited to try an authentic Dutch pancake. Unfortunately, we did not find it here. We ordered a pancake w banana and honey, and a Dutch pancake. The banana wasn't great, the topping was cold and not complementary of the pancake. The Dutch pancake was cold and flavorless and...

We came across this pancake house on a walk from Anne Frank's house, amazing pancakes, large, whatever fillings we had were just beautiful. Best of all was the service just personal and friendly, they coped well with my allergy. Will return here without question.
