With only four tables, you better make a reservation. We lucked out and were able to be seated when we just walked in, but many people were turned away while we were eating. The dutch pancakes were delicious. With over 100 teapots hanging from the...More

A friend recommended this place to us & I sure am glad that I did a Google search before we went as pretty much you can only get in with reservation. While we ate there, we saw several groups being turned away as they have...More

This place has the most amazing reviews and recommendations so we had to check it out. First off it is located up the steepest, smallest stairs I've ever climbed, and if you're tall like me watch your head! The place is small (4 tables), run...More

The cutest and most delicious spot for some pancakes; sweet or savory. There is only 4 tables so make sure you make a reservation and bring cash. Go ASAP :)

This is a great little spot, best pancakes I tried in Amsterdam. Be aware that if any of your party suffer from vertigo there are some very steep stairs to get in. It's worth calling ahead and trying to book because there are only 4...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

I think you have to call them. And I think they have a limit as to how far ahead.

We have no vegan options. We are a very small restaurant, only 4 tables. We have no vegan, glutenfree or whatsoever. We only have original Dutch pancakes
