Had our usual breakfast here. Was a bit disappointed though. Wanted to try their Dutch Pancake with lox & capers, but it was only for lunch and/or dinner. Kinda surprised since that's breakfast food. My poffertjes were great but my wife's Dutch Pancake was somewhat burned on the bottom. Service was as good as in the past.

I can't begin to tell you how much my mouth was watering for a Dutch pancake when I arrived in Aruba. It turned out I only had one popular option available and I wasn't disappointed. The Dutch Pancake House provided excellent service and a variety of flavored Dutch pancakes. My favorites were the Apple Cinnamon Pancake and the Apple Cinnamon... More

This became a favorite restaurant during a recent trip to Aruba. The menu is filled with choices for sweet or savory dutch pancakes. The service was quick and friendly. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Best meal we've had on Aruba, going back tomorrow for breakfast. Warning: the portions are HUGE, 1 plate easily feeds 2 hungry adults.

Very welcoming staff with efficient and professional service. "Pancakes" more like crepes with varied and tasty toppings. A good choice for breakfast.

I just looked at my charges and we ate there 5 out of 7 days for breakfast. We also had an evening meal there as well. They were closed on Thanksgiving so we ate two doors down and it was OK. We did see a long wait one day so we did eat right next door and the pricing was... More

We knew we wanted to go here after reading such great reviews. Thank you TripAdvisor because we loved it! We had been having some wonderful beach front dinners and changed it up with pancakes for dinner. The menu had so many options from sweet to savory. We all went with the sweet options and we all loved it. The pancakes... More

Best pancakes I've ever had! so many different choices, from sweet to full of flavors. The staff is very friendly and attentive and right next to the Renaissance! Get there early if you're going for breakfast it gets packed.

If you're looking for a lighter fare, this is a great option. They have lots of different types of "toppings" for the crepe-like pancakes. Some are savory and many are sweet. The sweet are probably more like a dessert, but we had them for dinner! They ran out of some of the fresh fruit which is the most popular so... More
