The concept is pretty simple: a cruise in Amsterdam for 75 minutes and an unlimited access to eat as many pancakes as you wish. The pancakes are fresh from the pan and come in three variety: savoury with bacon, sweet with apple and neutral. A buffet next to gives you a choise of basic things to fill it with. Kids... More

We had a nice dinner on the boat. it is a fun way to see the city, and a fun way to eat. The food was just ok - we think the pancakes were microwaved, not made fresh. And for the toppings there were few vegetables. But several kinds of (canned) fruit, banana, chocolate, sugar, hagelslag, peanut butter, etc... We... More

Went with my student group. It was a great Dutch experience, you have a wonderful tour around the harbour and all-you-can-eat pancakes with a variety of toppings. It was one of my favourite activities in Rotterdam.

Perfect 75 min boat trip passing the Willemsbrug and Erasmusbrug in direction of Dordrecht And besides that a couple of bacon pancakes at the same time, Kids enjoyed playing in the ballenbak, with a nice slide into it, Price right for the service offered, drinks excluded but I think thats reasonable for the price you pay

We reserved online before arriving in Rotterdam. We thought this would make for a perfect excursion with our 2 year old We were not disappointed. On a very wet and miserable Wednesday afternoon we boarded a lovely warm ship that had loads of character and yet was child friendly. The staff were great. really welcoming. The pancakes were delicious -... More

This particular tour really caters to families with small children. They have a slide on the boat with plastic balls at the bottom to keep the children entertained. Pancakes were different from what I expected. They were kind of like a pie crust that you put toppings on. They were alright. Not hot. The boat ride was very nice. Went... More

This boat trip is mainly for parents with kids of about 2-12 who like Dutch style pancakes. The trip takes 75 minutes and after everybody had their first round it's all you can eat. They have 3 types of pancakes natural, with apples and with bacon. There's a lot of extra stuff that can be added like sweets, fruits and... More

Best value for price. The pancakes were delicious with lot's of topics to choose. All trip takes about 1:30 h. It is a good time for lunch or dinner. There is bubble pool-room for children. Drinks are not included in the price, but they are quite cheap. Notice: there isn"t any excursion and talking about history or city.

Loved the pancakes! So many choices on toppings! Absolutely loved it! Theres a room to go below filled with plastic balls. a pool of plastic balls. unfortunately we sat right next to it so we left the boat with a head ache.
