We visited The Dutch Pancake House several times during our recent trip to Aruba. Located near the Renaissance Hotel and Marina, it has ample parking. The service is quick and food is delicious. Try the savory crepes with the Dutch syrup -- you will be pleasantly surprised. We go here each time we are in Aruba!

Cool pancakes. My wife and I had 2 breakfasts and 1 lunch. We never saw this kind of pancake before. Everything was delicious. We kept coming back. Great staff, very cheery morning people. Highly recommended.

We rarely rate on trip advisor but we rely on everyone else's reviews before going somewhere so I decided to rate here. Amazing! It's the perfect spot and the food is great! The staff is friendly (not all staff in Aruba is) and the atmosphere is great. Come here, you won't be disappointed!

I'm surprised at the good reviews because. Our crepes were burned! Our server was unattentive to the point we felt we were a burden! Not nice! Wouldn't recommend it personally

We were late for breakfast so I call it Brunch, plus the calorie count is probably high for just one meal! :-0 Excellent food though not sure if it was breakfast food or dessert. Everything is rich and filling. Pancakes with all kinds of fruity toppings. Outside seating, but even during the rain it was nice.

I took a risk and got a "savory" pancake, a little concerned that the batter would be too sweet with the ham and cheese and boy was I wrong! This tucked away spot has a bigger menu than expected. The food was served quickly and everyone at my table, 2 who went sweet and 2 who went savory, was extremely... More

The Dutch pancakes were different then American pancakes, but delicious. The ones with berries are like a dessert! For breakfast I tried the one with egg, mushroom and spinach! Delicious! Our waitress was a doll from Belgium who served us with a smile everyday! A must!

You have to go there for brunch because it is worth it. I had the strawberry, banana and blueberry pancake, topped with a vanilla ice-cream and it was to die for. And the price is right.
