After a long day and on our back to The Central Station we stopped for a bite. Had a double order of mussels and frites plus beer very good. We used the Trip Advisor recommendation and we were not disappointed. The staff was wonderful, if I had any suggestion I would advise you to sit in the window seat looking... More

This wonderful restaurant is located just off Leidesplein. We decided to try it as we wanted some traditional Dutch food and this seemed just the job. The staff are so friendly, speak excellent English and welcome you like long lost family. The decoration is kooky and cute-check out the lampshades. The food is absolutely top draw with my beef and... More

For our first night in Amsterdam, we wanted to find a traditional Dutch meal. We turned to TripAdvisor and Yelp and came across The Pantry. We decided to start with the beef carpaccio. Thin slices of beef were placed on a bed of argula and sprinkled with Old Amsterdam cheese and drizzled with a sherry truffle dressing. Delicious and a... More

Wonderful assortment of authentic dutch food. Given that we were there for only one dinner, this was the place to go. Thanks to Frank at the Marriott Concierge Desk for this recommendation. Authentic, reasonably price and right in the Liedesplain.

We went to eat at the Pantry after wanting to enjoy some traditional Dutch food and checking out what was recommended on TripAdvisor. We each had three courses- I had biterballen, meatball with potato and sauerkraut and poffertejes, while my partner had soup, meatball with three types of potato and yogurt with custard. We really enjoyed each course and while... More

Patronised based on good recommendations from fellow Tripadvisor's travellers. Did not disappoint. Tasty Dutch cuisine and friendly service staff. As suggested, we ordered the 3 course meal but on hindsight could have just gone for one set instead of two and add on an a la carte item as the portion was big and too much to consume.

The Pantry offers excellent traditional Dutch cooking--good honest fare with great friendly service. After eating in a string of Michelin reconnendations in Stockholm, Copenhagen and Belgium, this is the place to enjoy traditional Dutch dishes at about half the price of more trendy places. Excellent also for a light lunch.

We had dinner here in Easter, but it was not a good choice. The food was dry and the wine choices limited. The only positive thing was the service was quit well.

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend as we wanted to try some traditional Dutch cuisine. We decided to go for the set menus as they looked to be good value, and we were very impressed with the food and the service – I particularly enjoyed the Carpaccio of Beef. The only slight disappointment was that they do not... More
