“Great pancakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I often go here when my friends from abroad visit me in the Netherlands. The pancakes are delicious and HUGE. I usually order one salty and one sweet with my husband and eat 1/3 of both. That's enough to keep me full for hours. The service has always been friendly and I find the prices very reasonable.

“My main choice for an original Dutch experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

After tasting the amazing pancakes on a real Delfs Blue plate I was sold.
Since then I've been a loyal fan of Oudt Leyden.
Every time I have a huncering for pancakes. I know where to go.
Friendly service... I always get a smile, even when it's crowded

“Pancakes fine. Management terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Pancakes were fine. Management down right rude. When you owe a customer 20 euros in change (for the bill) and fail to do so, you do NOT accuse said customer of deceit. Plane and simple. Will never go back here again.

“Good pancake. Great service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

The pancake was very good, with onions, bacon, ham, cheese, potato, and veggies. The service was very good too. It was small, but not too busy on a Saturday at 2:30pm. Evidently, Churchill and the Dali lama have eaten at Oudt Leyden.

“Best Dutch pancakes in Leiden!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Great restaurant to have traditional style dutch pancakes. Hearthy or sweet.
Great atmosphere and a perfect location on the main square in Leiden.
