During a short stay in Amsterdam, we asked the concierge at our hotel for recommendations to sample Dutch food. One of the recommendations (and closest to our hotel) was The Pantry. It is a small, intimate restaurant, quaintly decorated, and located in a pedestrian thoroughfare. The restaurant appeared to cater to both locals and some tourists. This was my first... More

Finding The Pantry was happen-chance. It was an inviting, unpretentious, small, tucked away spot in a busy area where many restaurants were not open for lunch. The Trip Advisor logo on the window convinced us to try it. Not only were the cheese fondue, bread, fresh salad topped with goat cheese delicious but quintessential Dutch. Our waiter Bert was joyful,... More

Bart, the Multi lingual waiter/maitre de greatly contributed to our happiness with this small cozy Dutch restaurant. We shared the cheese fondue and the goat cheese, walnut and apple salad. Had a French Sauvignon Blanc wine by the glass

My friend's and I visited the Pantry on the recommendation of tripadvisor as we really wanted to taste some authentic dutch food. The restaurant is in a very busy touristy part of Amsterdam so you could easily miss it if you didn't know it was there. Despite being late, we were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The restaurant... More

We were a group of six and were all very pleasantly surprised! This is a very unassuming place but has wonderful character, as was a great staff. It is genuinely Dutch food, with a very nice Variety and even 4 variety samples that he can try multiple foods on the same plate. I highly recommend this if you like Dutch... More

The day prior to our departing Amsterdam, we wanted to have a taste of traditional, Dutch cuisine. After visiting the Rijks Museums, we turned to TripAdvisor for local guidance, which brought to our attention 'The Pantry.' We arrived at the restaurant without a reservation at about 6:00pm - a good thing, as the venue has limited seating, and few tables... More

A small restaurant with nice atmosphere centrally located in Amsterdam. Staff and service was friendly and efficient. 3 course dinner special menu is a bargain. Loved the pancakes with powdered sugar and syrup for dessert.

We read the great reviews for this place prior to our trip to Amsterdam, emailed a reservation and got an incredibly quick response confirming they had a table available. The great service continued when we arrived- we were almost 15 minutes late but it wasn't a problem. The staff were super friendly throughout our meal. They recommended great food and... More

First off, take my advice and make reservations. The place is tiny. We were luck to get two tables for two for our family of four. After we got seated they were telling others that the wait would be an hour. For good reason, the food is AMAZING. It is real Dutch. My daughter is 11 and eats like a... More

typical Dutch food should be experienced here, backed by good and friendly service in a small restaurant surrounded by some rather tourist trap competitors.
