I found this restaurant because of TripAdvisor and I couldn't be happier to have visited. Local cuisine was amazing and the service second to none. If you want an amazing local experience, try this place for sure!

Visited The Pantry with my wife and 7y son. We ate sausages and meatbolls with three differend kinds of mashed potatoes. Food was good but best part was the service. Our son was intrested in if there are snakes in Netherlands and in a very short moment staff was showing a plate with small snake on it. Of course the... More

I've been visiting Amsterdam for business and pleasure for many years, but never really have I tried Dutch food. So....we came across the Pantry and decided to give it a try. We were both impressed by the food and the service....so much so that we came back the night after, this time with friends. Again, food top notch although it's... More

My first taste of Dutch cuisine came at The Pantry - and I'm glad it did. Great interior, service and food at a fair price. No complaints!

I was attracted by the promise of "real Dutch food," amidst all the ethnic eateries; and my three-piece meal here (cheese croquettes, a Dutch version of tamale pie, and some silver-dollar pancakes sprinkled with powdered sugar) was fine, and the service pleasant, but hardly worth the $28. price tag. I snagged an outside table, only to find the street itself... More

The mashed potatoes three different ways were fantastic and a must have! Great service. Our waiter gave us some great off the beaten path tips of the city.

It is located in a very central location. The staff was very friendly and the environment was nice and comfortable. We ordered shrimp croquettes which were very nice. Then I order dutch steak. Although the steak was just ok, not excellent, the side dishes (mushroom, French fries, vege) were extremely delicious.

I don't profess to be an expert on Dutch food, but if this is the pinnacle of it I'll give it a miss in future. Limited menu which seems to mix and match a few choices to create others. I had the Ham with Honey Mustard Sauce my dining partners had two different choices. All concluded that the food was... More

Just fabulous! We flew into Amsterdam for a few days before we left on our Rhine River Cruise. We were staying at the Marriott and asked where we could get a great authentic Dutch meal. Without hesitation, they said, The Pantry. We went on trip advisor to see the reviews and figured we would give it a try. We were... More

We had very good Dutch food at the Pantry. The salted herring, bitterballen, beef and onion stew and the oven dish with cauliflower and ground beef were all very tasty. The restaurant which is near Leidesplein and the Rijksmuseum is nicely decorated and the waiter was friendly. We were very happy to find this cute little place on Tripadvisor.
