Great place for savory pancakes

I had no idea that pancakes could be so good. Very authentic local restaurant according to my local host. I had traditional ham and cheese. Delicious but I could only eat half since the portion is really large.

Maybe I get too high expectation on this high ranking restaurant and its signature dish- pancake. However the pancake itself is really plain, both in the presentation and flavour. and it charges even higher than decent pizza in Netherlands. The pancake is just sth I can easily made at home. Onion soup is good though. The decoration and ambience is... More

This place serves Dutch style pancakes with different ingredients mixed inside. Everything from fruit to meat and cheese. I ordered the Bacon and Ginger pancake thinking that would be a good combination. The only problem with it was that the ginger pieces were huge. Like the size of a small marble. Ginger is a very very strong ingredient and you... More

I really like pannenkoeken, or Dutch pancakes, so this place (also known as 't Pannenkoekenhuysje) seemed like a natural choice. What was immediately nice is that we could order a pitcher of ice water (karaf ijswater) for 1 euro, which serves two or so people quite well - most places in Europe charge much more for water, be it tap...

We looked for something traditional, and it didn't disappoint on that count. Selection of pancakes were excellent both savoury and sweet. Only downsides were the lack of variety on the kids menu and cost. The kids opted for chicken nuggets, and they were just like those from the golden arches. The cost was also higher than I would have expected... More
