Stopped here for a pancake whilst exploring Amsterdam by foot. Seated very quickly - to our surprise. It's tiny, but did great, if expensive, pancakes. But everywhere was equally pricey!

Heard great things about this place from friends and guidebooks but Pancakes! staff totally dropped the ball (or should I say our order). We waited 20 min before we got our beverages (when we inquired about them the waitress realized she had forgotten to input our order).Then, we waited at least another 20 minutes or so and began to wonder...

This seemingly innocuous hole in the wall place does indeed serve some of the better pancakes :) after seeing a line at this joint for 2 days straight, we decided to check out what the fuss was all about. We ordered the Dutch style banana-bacon pancake, and a tomato and onion pancake- both delicious. These pancakes are not the usual... More

On the look out for pancakes we stumbled upon a short queue gather outside Pancakes! Amsterdam, so on that basis thought it would be worthwhile to join the short wait for a seat. We were happy to wait about 10-15 minutes and were shown to our table. Whilst it was busy, we'd barely had a chance to gaze at the... More

This place is a must if you are in Amsterdam. Excellent Food. It is a small place with simple seating. The owner is exceptional.

We went with a large group (12 people) and they were able to seat us right away. The food was rather quick also! The food was of course different than we are used to, but it was very very good!

Lovely, friendly staff. Short wait for a table but we expected this after reading the reviews. Drinks within minutes, gorgeous cappuccino! Food not long after, the chocolate sauce which must be melted dark chocolate! It was incredible, the waitress brought us another saucer. Despite the queue outside, we didn't feel rushed once, we had a truly fantastic experience.

My review won't stop you from going here. After all, you are in Amsterdam. You want pancakes. Their pancakes come with an exclamation point! And everyone else says it was life-changingly good. I was in your shoes just a week ago. My wonderful partner and I put this on our list, right after the Anne Frank House and the Rijksmuseum.... More

Dears, We are very sorry to read about your bad experience in our restaurant. You are quite right in saying that this was not what you where expecting. The waitress should have informed you straight away that a mistake was made and should have done the follow up properly. This is a case of bad customer service that should not... More

We arrived shortly after 10am as I had read reviews to say people get there early & have to queue due to the size. We got there just in time as shortly after we sat a queue formed very quickly outside & down the street. The pancakes were gorgeous & definitely worth it!!
