Going Dutch takes on a whole new meaning in this city! The Pantry has a short but authentic Dutch menu. Try the mashed potato with sauerkraut and sausage - the stuff of everyday middle class Dutch diets. As is the case with many Germanic cuisines I wonder whether they ever eat any vegetables - you don't find much green stuff... More

Came here based on a recommendation of a friend. We booked ahead as its only a small place. Lucky we did as it was packed. The staff were pleasant and efficient and the waiter spoke at least three/four languages in the space we were there. Food was delicious, great portion sizes and very reasonable.

The atmosphere is warm and cozy with very friendly and attentive service. At 9:30pm on a Tuesday it was still full, unlike other restaurants nearby and that drew us in for our first food in Amsterdam. We tried the hutpot & the combo, definitely comfort food & very tasty. The waffle ice cream was delicious as well.

We went without reservation and we could get in at 9:30 pm. You might decide to book it in advance. Portions were nice and the food tasty. The many many tourists don't give the idea of real dutch place but you'll enjoy it

The service is outstanding, professional and very friendly and supportive. The food is really tasty and worth its value. The choice will allow satisfying most of the dietary and... More

We wanted to sample Dutch cuisine and the a Pantry was recommended. Service was great, food was good. I feel now that Dutch cuisine is meat, potatoes and gravy based. I did enjoy the salted (raw) herring and the meatball was tasty, but I chose the sampler plate, which had three scoops of mashed potatoes prepared in different ways. I... More

Traditional Dutch food, very tasty, resembles American cuisine in a way. Convenient location close to the Rijks / Van Gogh museums. 20-25 EUR per person for full lunch with desserts, not so expensive for Amsterdam. Warm and friendly staff reception. We liked it.
