Great meal

Friendly service and a great meal. We stuck to the Dutch specialties and weren't disappointed. Book in advance if you can (or they were taking bookings for later in the night)

Our hotel set a reservation for us at this excellent dining experience. Food was outstanding and the service even better. They made us feel at home. I would suggest making a reservation as seating is very limited at this very popular establishment

A delightful restaurant that is close to the 9 little streets districts. This restaurant serves up a traditional Dutch fare with a warm & friendly staff. This is not a tourist spot like so many others we passed during our Amsterdam walks.

I do not know what the food is like as never got to try it! I wanted to try Authentic Dutch food so went in the day before to ensure a table for the next night. On arriving for our booked time the restaurant was full. We were told we were "not on the list" and turned away rudely by... More

We had a great meal here with some delicious traditional Dutch food. The atmosphere inside is friendly and warm, the food was great and we enjoyed a nice bottle of wine. Good value for money as well.

The Pantry is a beautiful gem of a restaurant which serves delicious traditional Dutch food. The restaurant itself has a great romantic and quaint atmosphere that quickly becomes busy in the evening. The service is also top rate with extremely friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable staff. Recommended for anyone wanting to try delicious Dutch food!

A great place to experience local "Dutch" food. A complete enjoyment for the family! We enjoyed the ambience and the patient wait staff. It felt very comfortable. A little hard to find since it is quite small. Worth the find.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the conscierge at the American Hotel. We wanted a location that wasn't full of tourists and this was very nice. Small and quaint, but the food and service were excellent! My husband had a Chicken Satay with cabbage and a sauerkraut that was tender and very delicious. I had a casserole with cauliflower....
