If you are looking for genuine, home-style cooking for great value then look no further when visiting Amsterdam. The food, decor and service were excellent!! I enjoyed the meal so much, I returned the following lunchtime--and risked missing my flight!

Very tasty food and very authentic! We all really loved this place. Large portions of freshly cooked food, great selection to choose from and super choice of drinks. The service is excellent, the host even suggesting things to see and do in Amsterdam and more importantly directions on how to get there! The decor is memorable - it's like sitting... More

If you are looking for authentic dutch food, this is the place. We did not have a reservation but were accommodated after about a 15 minute wait. We started with a platter of fish which included traditional herring, eel and some small shrimp. I had the Hutspot (mashed potatoes mixed with stewed beef, carrots and onions) served with a smoked...

When we travel we like to eat the local cuisine. If you are similar to us then this place is for you. The service was friendly and prompt but without any pressure. The food was delicious. It tasted like somebody's Dutch grandmother was back in the kitchen whipping up these tasty treats from scratch.

Ironically, trying to find Dutch food in Amsterdam is a lot harder than you would think unless you want chips and mayonnaise or herring. We were lucky to have this place recommended to us as it provides a range of good, hearty Dutch fare that even impressed our Dutch colleague with it's authenticity. There's nothing fancy about the place, it's... More

Food was piping hot and delicious. Staff very friendly and helpful. Prices reasonable. Rare to find such a combination of pluses in a section of town packed with tourist-focused restaurants.

This is the place for typical Dutch cuisine. Small and cosy... a bit too cosy as you're almost sitting on your neighbours lap! This is not haute cuisine, but the sort of food you might have at home. Starters of smoked eel and shrimp croquettes were good. Mains on the hearty side.. Chicken satay and smoked sausage with mash. No... More

The staff is friendly and the food is great. Good beers ! Good prices, too. It is located on a tourist zone but is not a tourist trap. I recommend .

Very nice restaurant with good Dutch food. Boyfriend less impressed with his meal, but we agreed that the chicken satay was absolutely wonderful.

With so much amazing food in Amsterdam, we realized we weren't getting a fair sampling of classic Dutch food. So after a quick TripAdvisor search, we landed at The Pantry. And it did not disappoint, in fact, it was one of the best meals we have had here in Amsterdam. We had two appetizers, the kipper and the cheese croquettes,... More
