Excellent meal and service

Had a great Dutch dinner that began with crunchy, but light beef croquettes, and was followed by 3 different mashed potatoes with sausage. Dining partners had chicken satay and meatball with their mash. Great service . Neighborhood is filled with eateries.

We stopped in Amsterdam for one night, to break up the long flight from Africa to US. Not nearly enough time for a really interesting city! Our concierge recommended that we dine at The Pantry, to try Dutch food. Oddly enough this welcome idea hadn't crossed our minds. We were glad we did. The walk from the Marriott to Pantry... More

Good variety of offerings - spacious though a bit dark inside - imagine it is better at night. It woukd have been nice to sit outside but just a bit too chilly. I had a tomato sould with bread which was delicious.

For the last evening of our stay in Amsterdam we asked the hotel staff to recommend a traditional Dutch eatery. "No problem, it's got to be The Pantry" they replied. We were lucky to reserve a table as this is a very popular place so if you go try to book in advance. I can't praise this place enough, decor... More

Had to try Dutch whilst in Amsterdam and this restaurant was close to the hotel and had good reviews. The lady that served was great, very jolly and amusing and helped with the choices on offer. Had the traditional food which included shrimp croquettes to start, lovely. The mains seem to be potato based so mashed potato with different things... More

We recently had dinner at The Pantry and thoroughly enjoyed the meal, we wanted to have a Dutch meal and ordered the casserole which was sort of a Dutch shepherds pie and it was very tasty. Also had the seafood appetizers which was great also. The servers were friendly. If you have a large party I would think about reservations.... More

Dutch food is more than just the snacks and sweets, like frites, poffertjes, pancakes and bitterballen. This cosy restaurant is your best bet for an authentic Dutch meal.
