Description: Smallest pancake restaurant in Europe on 2nd floor of a 16th century building. Restaurant excist already since 1961. All pancakes are made from scratch. We are famous for our homemade cream. Also many celebrities, like Anthony Bourdai, Seth Mayer and the real houswives of Beverly Hills, have taped some shows in Upstairs.

Probably the smallest restaurant ever! But also the best savoury and sweet pancakes! Be prepared to wait or arrive early as the place only boasts 4 tables! Extremely cosy, friendly, cute and unique! The pancakes are definitely fresh as they travel few meters from the chef's pan to the plate in a matter of a few seconds! A definite MUST in Amsterdam.

Walked by there today after a visit to The Lord in the Attic, feeling peckish and keen to try a pancake or three, but found the door firmly closed and a sign that appeared to indicate it was closed til Jan 2014.

No pancakes for you!!!

This place is really tiny but extremely cozy at the same time. This is the best place to taste the best Dutch pancakes. We were lucky to get a table without reservation but we got there 15 minutes before opening….! It was all worth the effort. Pancakes are fresh, yummy and huge. You won’t be hungry!
Definitely recommend it!

Cute, tiny restaurant (apparently Europe's smallest!) up a flight of very steep stairs! Only four tables so you may want to book or have to leave your name on a waiting list to get in. We had a savoury pancake (salami, tomato and cheese) and a sweet one (apple, cinnamon and sugar). Both were great, as were the fresh juices. Loved the experience!

I am a pancake lover and these pancakes are definitely worth a try!
Very light and full of flavor.
It was 4 of us and we shared 2 savory pancakes and 2 sweet ones so that we could try different types and .. we were honestly thinking to go for a 5th one..
The people who manage to the place are very friendly too.
The most expensive pancake is around 10 euro but they are very feeling so you can definitely have lunch or dinner here ..
The place is tiny but very cosy and well decorated.
My tip is to book in advance .. perhaps a day earlier.
No take away available.
