My wife is of Dutch heritage and these pannekoeken are the real deal! The pancakes are more thin than traditional american pancakes. We always go here for a breakfast before a day of shopping. It is very casual and fair priced. The service is excellent and the food is fresh and authentic. My daughters love the rainbow pancake and my wife loves the blueberry pancake. We have been going here for years and it is always delicious!!!

If you are staying in the Renaissance Ocean Suites and are not on the all-inclusive plan Pannekoehuis is a great choice for breakfast. Nice menu to choose from, quick service and decent food. The Poffertjes were a hit with my daughter.

Our Aruban tradition is to work out at the Renaissance, then amble over here before hitting the beach. We get some eggs, bacon and strawberries, and then share a platter of these little silver-dollar-type pancakes. Yes, food is a bit over-priced (hello--vacation locale), but the service is friendly and reasonably prompt.

The food is mediocre and very pricey. They served me Iced tea in a small glass about as big around as a silver dollar, one gulp and it was gone. At $2.50 US per glass it was very pricey.

The "pancake" is actually a large crape. it is about as large as a plate with lots of "stuff" on it. It was very greasy tasting. I will not be going back.

When we like to eat pancakes once and a whle we often visit this restaurant. Sometimes members of our party choose other dishes but I won't recommend that. There are definitely better restaurants to have your dinner then. They don't exceed the level of moderate. However the pancakes are good and freshly baked, so no instant stuff. The service is oke and you can nicely sit on the terrace in the shade. Wine quality can be pretty poor, so beware for that.
