Obviously not gourmet dining, but the pancakes are well made, in large portions and served by friendly attentive staff. The restaurant was quite full, but still operated efficiently, with everybody contented.

A friend recommended Oudt Leyden and I'm very glad I went. They have a great atmosphere. It seems very good for tourists. They have a great selection and the biggest pancakes I've had on the Netherlands! I always suggest apple and bacon pancakes. Enjoy!

After trying out several pancake restaurants around Leiden, this is the only one I've tried more than once. Always delicious pancakes and always good service. I take visitors here all the time, and everyone always loves it.

This is an easy-to-find jewel of a place. They have over 20 kinds of pancakes, each the size of a medium pizza, and delicious. We looked askance at the size on other people's tables, then found ourselves finishing up the last bites! Good apple cider, friendly staff, and they were able to take our non-European credit card!

Very big, filling and tasty pancakes served in pleasant surroundings by friendly staff. Good value. I would happily return for more of the same.

Great pancakes served in a great variety of fillings. They are massive double layered affairs with filling inside. Service friendly, courteous and efficient. Would definitely go back. Good value for money.

Nice old little restaurant in the middle of the beautiful city Leiden. They serve big and delicious pancakes!! As a Dutchman, I know pancakes, and I have eaten quite a few in my life. Not those thick fluffy American pancakes, that immediately absorb the sirup, the moment you pour it on the pancake!! No, I am talking about the flat... More

After a walk in the town, we stopped for lunch here, as advised by a friend, for pancakes. The service was really friendly and fast, there are a lot of pancake options, sweet and savoury. They are tasty and huge, so be prepared!
