Good and tasty but not quite matched to price

Overall we enjoyed our food. We had a very large plate of Shoarma pancakes with the pork and apple. Fairly tasty and filling. Also had the patat fries which topped us nicely with the yummy mayo. Lastly finished with the poffertjes. Sweet and tasty, except the left over butter on the plate made me... read more

As per the subject heading, aim for a small or shared mains so that you can do justice to their desserts ... the poffertjies are good and we also had a pancake filled with cherries and served with ice cream which was delicious. I had a Hawaiian burger as my main and the patty seemed to lack meat and had... More

I always vowed I would never come back after we visited last time and found the restaurant grubby, in need of a major overhaul and the service sadly lacking. This time I was invited by a family member so I went along with gritted teeth and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant area has indeed been overhauled and is much cleaner... More

Never having eaten Dutch before and having a Dutch friend stay over the holidays, we thought we would try a new experience. According to our friend the food could have been better and the pancake she had (with bacon and bananas) was not cooked the way it was at home. We found it OK but were disappointed that one of...

I went here for lunch with my 95 year old dad and his wife on an exceptionally cold day. We had a great time. The food was perfect. Not flash but good home cooking by two jolly Dutch ladies. We had a couple of small pancakes with various savoury toppings. The serves are generous and we failed to finish the... More

It was fairly easy to spot this place from the main road in Birkenhead. As you enter the place in the first thing I noticed was lamp posts in the middle of the restaurant, followed by multitude of windmills as paintings on the wall or as porcelain collectables lining the wall. Their menu consists mainly of savoury and sweet pancakes... More

This is a great place to go for brunch, the selection of pancakes is astounding and I am addicted to the poffertjes with butter and icing sugar. We have also been for dinner a few times. I suggest you order a patat special (or two) for the table which was fries with mayonnaise, onion and curry ketchup - I know... More

Delicious pancakes, savoury or sweet. The kids' room is a welcome bonus. We don;t eat here as often as we'd like to.

We loved this Dutch restaurant, especially the small traditional Dutch pancakes and the awesome Dutch syrup. My daughter ordered a medium pancake and it was so good.
