This particular tour really caters to families with small children. They have a slide on the boat with plastic balls at the bottom to keep the children entertained. Pancakes were different from what I expected. They were kind of like a pie crust that you put toppings on. They were alright. Not hot. The boat ride was very nice. Went... More

This boat trip is mainly for parents with kids of about 2-12 who like Dutch style pancakes. The trip takes 75 minutes and after everybody had their first round it's all you can eat. They have 3 types of pancakes natural, with apples and with bacon. There's a lot of extra stuff that can be added like sweets, fruits and... More

Best value for price. The pancakes were delicious with lot's of topics to choose. All trip takes about 1:30 h. It is a good time for lunch or dinner. There is bubble pool-room for children. Drinks are not included in the price, but they are quite cheap. Notice: there isn"t any excursion and talking about history or city.

This is essentially a floating restaurant. They take you around the bay, but I didn't read closely enough to see that it wasn't a tour (no facts given about what you were seeing, etc.), which was disappointing to me and the party we were traveling with. On the upside, the food was good, the kids had fun and yes, the... More

Whenever we are in Amsterdam the kids rush to the Pannekoekenhuis (pancake house) off Dam Square for a taste of the delicious and famously large Dutch , in what is a very homey and cozy little place. The Pancake Boat, put that experience on steroids with all-you-can-eat pancakes and myriad toppings, and generally an ongoing party atmosphere as the city... More

My boyfriend and I used our gold Holland Pass here and did NOT regret it at all. It is recommended that you make a reservation before going in case it is full. The staffs were really friendly and would come by to ask if everything was OK with us. We may not have the best pancake in town but for... More

A little it noisy, but the kids had fun. It is a good tips to do the reservation on internet. It... More

We took the two and a half hour trip, thinking we'd be able to eat a good number of pancakes, but they took the pancakes away after just over an hour - in that time I only got to eat two! (Admittedly there was ice cream afterwards but I wanted pancakes so didn't bother with that.) We both had food... More
