Traditional Dutch cuisine

Small restaurant near Leidesplein, with very welcoming and helpful staff when it came to explaining the dishes. The perfect place to try the very traditional Dutch cuisine. Don't miss on the bitterballen and stamppots!

We wanted to experience local Dutch cuisine and The Pantry fit the bill perfectly. We arrived without a reservation and the restaurant was packed with customers. They graciously took our names and gave us an estimated wait time of less than 20 minutes. After being seated we chose to select from the various set menus, however you can choose a... More

I made a reservation about one week before we left for our two week long transatlantic cruise via their website and their e mail without any problem and I received the confirmation from the manager immediately. This restaurant was located right in the heart of restaurant district in Leidseplein and was only about 10 minutes of walk from our hotel.... More

This is another restaurant we have eaten at before and because the food and service was so good we wanted to go back. We did not make reservations this time and it was full inside so we ate outside. It was a little chilly but still great. We ordered off the fixed menu and again the food was absolutely delicious... More

Going Dutch takes on a whole new meaning in this city! The Pantry has a short but authentic Dutch menu. Try the mashed potato with sauerkraut and sausage - the stuff of everyday middle class Dutch diets. As is the case with many Germanic cuisines I wonder whether they ever eat any vegetables - you don't find much green stuff... More

They serve mainly Dutch food here. Everything we tried was good. We also had a couple of beers while we were here. Stop in and enjoy

Came here based on a recommendation of a friend. We booked ahead as its only a small place. Lucky we did as it was packed. The staff were pleasant and efficient and the waiter spoke at least three/four languages in the space we were there. Food was delicious, great portion sizes and very reasonable.

The atmosphere is warm and cozy with very friendly and attentive service. At 9:30pm on a Tuesday it was still full, unlike other restaurants nearby and that drew us in for our first food in Amsterdam. We tried the hutpot & the combo, definitely comfort food & very tasty. The waffle ice cream was delicious as well.

We went without reservation and we could get in at 9:30 pm. You might decide to book it in advance. Portions were nice and the food tasty. The many many tourists don't give the idea of real dutch place but you'll enjoy it

I chose this place to taste some typical Dutch cuisine in a typical restaurant as I was introducing some friends to the beautiful Amsterdam … this was the best choice ever! The service is outstanding, professional and very friendly and supportive. The food is really tasty and worth its value. The choice will allow satisfying most of the dietary and... More
