Worth the wait

I can't tell you how much I love this place. Consistent, delicious, unique food that doesn't disappoint. Staff are quick at getting people in and out so even though there's a wait, it's reasonable. Absolutely worth the wait.

My parents were visiting so we decided to try the Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus because they saw it on You Gotta Eat Here and have made it their goal to try all those restaurants. We ended up going during a slower period as there were few others in the restaurant. Located just off Crowchild Trail (you can only access from the... More

This was a first and I was thrilled with the quality of both food and service at this small place tucked away in the corner of a little strip mall. The food far exceeded the expectations of the location. Traditional dutch crepes (they call them pannenloeks) the size of a large dinner plate with a wide variety of "toppings" many... More

I was very excited when I heard about a Dutch pancake place in Calgary. Finally had a chance to try it out, but I was very disappointed. First of all, on the website they claim to be authentic Dutch pancakes. Well let's start with the name itself. It is silly at best. Pfanntastic and Haus are German, not Dutch. Ambiance... More

Hi DutchMachine, thank you for taking time to review our restaurant. I am very sorry to hear that your experience was not as authentic as you had hoped for. As far as the name goes, as far as I know, there is no such word as “pfanntastic” the way we spell it in any language. The reason it is spelled... More

Nothing to complain about here. Service, food, price, it's all good. This was a new one for me. A combination of crepe, onion, bacon, and cheese. Delicious! They also have vegetarian choices. I'll have to go back to try some of the other delights on the menu.

We went on a Saturday and although we were early there was already a line up and wait list. You cannot make a reservation on a weekend.

It's a bit of a drive and always a bit of a wait so we only go a couple of times a year but I'm always glad when we do. The food is great (so many choices!), the service is friendly and the prices are reasonable.

After a busy morning of medical appointments we were ready for some simple comfort food. At 2.00 p.m. on a Friday, the restaurant was quiet.
