Yesterday we visited The Dutch Pancake House at 4 pm. We waited for Snitzels to be done for an hour. Nothing. Tomato soup was definitely from can. There was nothing but tomato, no cheese, celery or dill. Even garlic bread is not available. The worst place in ARUBA.

We loved this place so much we ate here twice during our one week stay! The crepes were amazing, the snitzel was tender,and desserts were "dushi!" Our server Kawitha was sweet and wonderful. View is wonderful and near the water. Would recommend to ANYONE visiting Aruba.

Had attempted to post this immediately after our visit in September 2014 while on a cruise. We had dined here before without incident as my wife is required to eat gluten free and they had accommodated her without incident. Not so on this trip, whether it was the waitress not conveying the gluten free requirement to the cook or the... More

Outstanding Dutch breakfast in Aruba. Must try the cinnamon poffertjis! Delicious! If you are in the marina area in Orangestad, don't miss this little gem! Worth looking for! Enjoy!

Breakfast was good a few days ago but our evening meal tonight was fantastic. Stopped by chance as there was a steel band playing in the bandstand but was a great decision as its the best food we've had on the island so far and great value.

My husband and I ate here for brunch one day to fill up before going snorkelling. He had a savoury dish from the lunch menu (a crepe filled with stew), which was very tasty. I had a crepe from the "savoury" menu. The name escapes me (Provence, perhaps?), but it had thin slices of ham, chives, walnuts, brie, and the... More

My wife and I had the breakfast special which consisted of scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon or sausage, and delicious little Dutch pancakes. Price was $12. Food and service was good.

Party of six of us had breakfast here yesterday. It's located near the cruise ship terminal and parking is free and close. I had the Poffertjes (Medium size) with Peaches and Grand Marnier. This is to die for! Everyone else had basically the same thing but with different toppings. The coffee was a little bit on the strong side for... More

we eat breakfast here a few times when we are vacationing in Aruba. The Dutch pancakes are delicious and different from eggs every morning, they are also open for lunch and dinner, and the dessert crepes are to die for, if in the city definetly stop here for a great meal.

Luved the "silver dollar" pancakes done in the famous Dutch fashion. Most people are unaware of this place. It's located in the strip mall next to the Seaport Casino.
