We queued in both visits to his tiny little pancake shop but man oh man was the wait worth it. Fantastic and delicious. No point in even trying anywhere else it was that good. Cannot miss it when you are looking for a touch of Dutch food.

They are one of the best pancakes I had in Amsterdam and you can get both sweet and savory. I tried both types and they were both very delicious. Recommended if you wanna have a taste of Dutch pancakes.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal so much the first time I went that I found an excuse to fly back to Amsterdam two weeks later. Both times I had some variation of Dutch pancakes with apple and cheese. It was delicious. My compatriots also enjoyed their meal and the fresh mint and ginger tea was wonderful! Get there early for... More

We were so hungry and decided to try this Pancake place. Very glad we did! We went to the one by Centraal Station. The windows face toward the canal area. The service was great and friendly. The food was good. Not an "I-Hop" experience as in the States, but worth the adventure of trying pancakes in Amsterdam.

Really this was the best pancake of my life! I try their pancake of the month and was absolutely awesome! Seems not so cheap but you will be full with just a single one!

I have had better poffertjes elsewhere but these were nothing to complain about. The portions are very generous and the staff are friendly.

We stumbled across this restaurant (which isn't hard to do, given its location) earlier this year, and I introduced my wife to the venue on our most recent trip. The offerings are divided into sweet (chocolate and fruit) or savory (meats and vegetables) and again into Dutch (for lack of a better analogy, crepe-like) and American (thicker, "fluffy"). We had...

Not sure if dutch pancakes just aren't my thing, but I wasn't too impressed with this place. We had pancakes elsewhere in Amsterdam, and I enjoyed them much more. This place was just doing it for me. The savoury pancake was kind of greasy, and the sweet pancake was too heavy. Overall, not the best. Not too mention they don't... More

This was a lovely place to eat- a lunch rather than evening meal but if you do go here I would recommend you step outside the box of ham and cheese and go full on with their lovely creations. I had camembert, ham, chicory and raspberry sauce for 10 euros. It was lovely- filling and tasty. They only take cards... More

Went here under a friends recommendation and definitely wasn't disappointed. It is a touch pricey for pancakes (they're pretty cheap in the uk) but the prices reflected everywhere in Amsterdam so it wasn't unexpected. I believe there are 2 of these pancake restaurants in the city and we went to the smaller one down one of the side streets near... More
