We had a lovely Filipino waitress who was friendly and fun; our food was good, mine was possibly a little bland but you could have fed twins on just my pancake! If you can get a table downstairs, I'd go there - a slightly less frenetic space but still buzzing.

We went there for dinner on a Thursday night. The place is busy, but service was quick so we did not have to wait long. We ordered a pancake and a poffertjes. Be forewarn if you are coming from across the Atlantic - the pancake is more like crepes and not the IHOP type. There are both savory and sweet... More

This place rocks! The food is a little on the pricey side but you definitely get compensated with portion size.

This place has gone down hill and I won't be back. The place is looking cheap, tired and grubby! What's with the fake grass on the walls - yuck.all those germs with people running their hands all over it! We ordered a starter that was cold (was supposed to be hot) and 3 pancakes. 25 mins after the starter we... More

Having previously been and my memory of this place being good, I came away disappointed this time. It was a Saturday evening, I admit, but this restaurant has been here for years. Good points - I didn't have to wait long for a table, the staff are nice and polite and it's not too noisy even with tables so close... More

I had heard about this place through friends and decided to give it a try, I wouldn't go out of my way for a second visit, but might pop in if I was passing by. We both opted for sweet pancakes, which weren't bad, but they weren't great either. The two major bad points were service and cleanliness. The section... More

We visited My Old Dutch for lunch, after seeing multiple yummy Instagram posts. We had a stack of pancakes with white chocolate buttons and kinder bueno. It also comes with two pots of warm nutella. It was very nice - just very pricey
