A different way of serving pancakes: several oblong pancakes fused together on a huge round plate, barely enough room on an outside table for 2 plates. I thought a limited range of toppings and not very imaginative but nevertheless, good food.

We often take guests from abroad there to have a taste of some Dutch pannenkoeken, poffertjes, and even mustard soup. The pannenkoeken (Dutch pancakes) are the biggest I've seen in any pancake house so far, toppings are relatively generous, the atmosphere is very pleasant and service is good. It's a good place for kids and adults alike. It is nicer... More

This is sold as 'Dutch' food, which I am sure it is. However, it seems to be a bit too much of a tourist trap and I have had better pancakes. The menu is no different from 3 yrs ago. The tables are a bit cramped. The mustard soup was good, but the savoury pancake 'Boeren' the farmhouse pancake lacked... More

A friend and myself visited the Oudt Leyden for pancakes and I was expecting normal pancakes but these were really big. We ordered a pancake with salmon and pancake with ham, cheese, mushroom and bacon asked for addition of paprika.Both tasted absolutely tasty and worth the price. Also everyone was so friendly and polite. The town is a quaint little... More

Big pancakes - do you go for savoury or sweet one? Well if you hungry go for both! Good service, good choice - well worth a visit.

The "pancake" was so much fun to eat. The variety was tremendous and the dining experience was fun. If spacious eating is what you want, you might feel a little squeezed, but it is SO worth the stop.

Stopped in for coffee and pastry on an overcast day. Cosy place with nice wood panelling. Very good coffee, apple tart and strawberry-waffle. Friendly service.

Go in with an empty stomach and leave completely satisfied and full. The area is great for relaxing and this restaurant has a couple of seats you can sit out in the sun. Service was good and the pancakes were excellent. Would recommend.

Huge choice of different pancakes, both sweet and hearty. Other things as well. We had different pancakes, all 40cm in diameter, making it quite a challenge for my young daughter. Very friendly staff. Close to museums.

Thank Lexik
