This restaurant is somewhat hidden down a side street, but is a fun spot to eat. The menu is a variety of pancakes, many of which are very unusual. However, our party all enjoyed our food and the atmosphere as well. It is an old building that has been renovated, but nothing is quite straight, and walk carefully if you... More

If you want something different for lunch or dinner, this may be an option. Pfannekuchen is a German pancake (thin style) house that has both sweet and savory pancake dishes. They are very reasonably priced and serve adult beverages too. I enjoyed a cheese, ham and spinach stuffed bacon (in the batter) pancake. It was good and filling with a... More

I love this place, the food is quirky all courses have one thing In common they come in a pancake, up stairs is like old mother Hubbard's house, the floor is not quite straight but neither are the tables

We had lunch here again this week and again, everything was just great! The food is delicious and served quite quickly. The service is great and I love the quirkiness of the building! One of my favourites, when I'm in town!

Went here for dinner. Good choice of savoury and sweet pancakes, which are a very generous size, but wine list very limited. We had efficient friendly service and enjoyed our experience at this restaurant.

Honestly I expected more... the place is absolutely lovely and typical, though the service is slow (which is not a problem when you're a tourist anyway), but polite. The portions are big and there's a great variety of choice. I wasn't that impressed with my pancake, while my boyfriend loved his one and said it reminded him to those his... More

Like a previous reviewer we had suffered at an Italian restaurant the night before and decided to give this place a try. The inside is wonderful, very quirky with a gallery round most of the restaurant and an atrium garden. The waitress seemed rather off-hand at first but was efficient enough and became friendlier as the evening wore on. The... More

It was my wife’s birthday and after trying to find one restaurant that wasn't empty we found this pancake house. The night before we had dinner at pretty bad Italian restaurant and thought pancakes, why not. For he first time in Hameln we were greeted in a friendly way and in seconds got a nice table and a menu. The... More
