Description: The Pantry Imagine a restaurant version of the successful TV show I Love Holland, and that is what The Pantry is like. This cosy restaurant near the Leidseplein distinguishes itself with its typically Dutch atmosphere and traditional old-Dutch dishes. Hospitality is important. The staff understands the dining and hospitality business and have worked here for years, during which the recognition of this restaurant has been ever increasing. The Dutch living room atmosphere is enhanced by the use of lampshades, Delftware and old paintings on the wall, complemented by the background music. The Pantry works exclusively with fresh, homemade products. Its location in the Leidseplein neighbourhood makes this an ideal restaurant to eat before catching a theatre show or movie. The doors open from eleven in the morning, so it's also a great place to go for lunch

Like most of the Dutch restaurant, Pantry is quite narrow and they don't provide a high chair. However, they offer good selection of traditional dutch food and the man in charge is passionate about the restaurant and will explain how the dish like before you placed your order.
There were a slightly mistake occurred so we have to wait a longer time for our meal.

Friendly staff though food service was slow due to brisk business and only 3 staff
Food was of good standard though the wines were disappointing.

Had dinner at The Pantry with my husband because we wanted some Dutch food, figuring that the local cuisine would be a safe bet having had horrible "Italian" the night before. We weren't disappointed; the food was very good and reasonably priced. The wait staff were also very friendly and welcoming. It's probably worth mentioning though that the menu is quite limited - there's starters, mains, traditional dishes and desserts of which there's maybe 5-6 options in each course. If you're in the area I highly recommend The Pantry.

The Pantry is a small restaurant with few staff, but they are very attentive & friendly & the food is excellent. We happened to find it one night & were so impressed we booked up for our last night - a good thing we did as they were turning many people away. Real Dutch meals of great quality and we loved the combination meal with three different types of mash and delicious sausage.
