A rainy day in Leiden was cheered up tremendously by a visit to this restaurant before catching the train. It was warm, with welcoming staff and lively with families and groups of friends of all ages enjoying the food. Orders were taking by a helpful waitress and the huge and beautiful pancakes were delivered in good time. The pancakes (Apple... More

Absolutely delicious. Went there with friends and the pancakes were the size of a big pizza. You can choose either sweet or savory and they have a website with a menu. They also accept reservations. Very good atmosphere

We have visited The Netherlands 6 times but our first time in Leiden. We have eaten many Dutch pancakes which are totally different from American pancakes. This restaurant is by far the best when it comes to preparing both savory and sweet Dutch pancakes. The atmosphere is relaxed and very quaint. The plates which they serve the pancakes on are... More

I was greeted cheerfully and had a great meal. It was interesting to see the variety of pancakes offered. I did not find anything to dislike about the restaurant.

Service is always great and the food is fantastic. Sweet or savoury pancakes, and they always fill you up. There are other things on the menu too. It's well worth a visit.

Having never been to the Netherlands before I was surprised to see that one of the national dishes was savoury and sweet pancakes (mixed). Food was amazing!! We visited twice and were not dissapointed on either occasion. Very clean, very tasty and served by friendly staff.

Oudt Leyden is an authentic pancake restaurant. Famous people, including Winston Churchill, visited this restaurant for a typical Dutch pancake. The pancakes are HUGE. My favorite is the apfelstrudel pancake with apple, raisins, almondpaste, sugar and cinnamon. Friendly staff.

This place is a combination of a pancake house and a steak house, so ideal if your party has fans for both. The steaks are fine but certainly not the best I've had and the selection is limited as well. Not so with the pancakes: a huge selection and excellent quality. The plates on which they're served are huge and... More
