Food was typically dutch, good for first timers who want to try local food. But then again, dutch food is mainly heavy foods- cheese, potato, thick soups. It was slightly salty and the price was on the expensive side considering the ingredients that go into preparing each dish. The friendly staff made the whole experience great though! Resturant is small,... More

Heavy old style Dutch food. Heavy and lacking finesse or close to cooking skills, but the waiter was nice and multilingual...

The Pantry is a beautiful little restaurant with exceptional Dutch food. Everything was delicious and the server was very friendly and attentive. One of us had the beef/onion stew and the other had the cauliflower oven dish. Wow, it was all so very good. They also had a great beer selection. I recommend the La Trappe Quadrupel!

Quick service with excellent food. We had a nice chat to the waiter who made some good recommendations and was happy to help. The portions were large, but not off-puttingly so.

What a wonderful experience! This place was highly recommended by some friends, and they were damnly right! We tried one of the menu suggestions of the house, remaining in awe! The place is quaint, just a block from the square Leiden. Simply a must!

The Pantry is a small place on a side street of Amsterdam, it is between two streets with eateries which staff 'hawkers' in front of the restaurants hoping to pull you into their establishments(almost Las Vegas style -- unappealing!). NOT found at The Pantry, wait staff on top of their game, GREAT food(salmon with lobster sauce -- OMG, dang good!).... More

Quick service, excellently prepared, delicious comfort food! We loved the pea soup too!! A must visit restaurant. The poffertjes were good but not the same quality as ones you can get at the markets.

My wife I and our grandson had a great dinner there. The authentic Dutch food was an enjoyable evening. It is recommended by the Marriott where we were staying,
