My family and I went to Linda's for dinner one night. It was great that we didn't need to have reservations for this restaurant. It came with great reviews on Trip Advisor, and now I see why. These dutch pancakes are a family recipe from Linda, who recently passed away. The restaurant is now managed by her son, and it is an attraction that EVERYONE needs to try! The pancake is thinner than an American pancake, but not like a crepe. They had a wide range of toppings - some are on the pancake itself, such as gouda cheese, while others are cooked within, like ham, bacon, or apples. They have a variety of pancakes to order, or you can create your own! I had the Hawaiian pancake with gouda cheese, pineapple, and ham. The pancake was larger than a 11" plate and it definitely a meal! They serve all of the pancakes with powered sugar, Dutch Stroop (which is fantastic tasting - think the consistency of Agave nectar with the taste of syrup), or cinnamon. I found this to be one of the most filling and cheap meals on the island. They also have a wonderful cappuchino! I definitely plan on going back on my next trip to Aruba!

If Aruba is your vacation destination , Linda's is a must on your schedule for the best Dutch pancakes ever!!!! Your choice of sweet like Nutella and strawberries, fresh fruit or savory like ham, bacon, Gouda, mozzarella, or Brie!! You will not be dissapointed . The staff is fantastic and accommodating . It is cute and quaint with an outdoor porch and small inside bar area. The coffee is amazing too! My daughter has celiac and we visited three times on our vacation! Can't wait for next year!

This place is relaxed, totally kid-friendly (they even have a little table with toys on it just inside the door) and has something to please everyone.

We stayed at the Radisson and it was almost a 20 minute walk to Linda's. It was kind of a nice walk though, since we hadn't been down that way yet. The pancakes are as big as the plate and you can get all sorts of toppings for them. My husband got chocolate chips and strawberries and I got chocolate chips and blueberries. The toppings are not baked into the batter, but the chocolate chips melt anyway from the heat. We each got a side of bacon. Everything was delish and server was very nice.

Thank you for your visit and your review. It is good to read that everything was delicious and that the service was very nice. Some toppings do go on top of the pancake, some are baked inside the pancake. We usually cook the bacon inside, as well as ham, raisins, walnuts, sliced apples, and almonds. We look forward to serving you again soon!
