Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Worth the detour, 'pannenkoeken' taste just like in the Netherlands! The restaurant is full of Dutch things. This can be a full lunch if you get the meal menu. A warm welcome is included.

We have spent a great Friday afternoon at Jany’s enjoying her delicious Dutch pancakes. As a Dutch family now living in China and travelling to Hualien for our holidays, we didn’t expect to find a place where they would have authentic Dutch pancakes. Our kids...loved the traditional sweet pancakes with apple, raisons and cinnamon as well as the savoury one with cheese and bacon, but we tried Jany’s own creations with chicken and smoked salmon and pesto, and we were not disappointed… they were simply delicious. Besides enjoying the pancakes, we also had a great afternoon talking to the friendly owner Jany who knows a lot about the places in and around Hualien and also is a tour guide on the days that the café is closed. Jany’s pancake house is open from Friday to Sunday. The cosy homelike cafe is a great place if you are in Hualien, although not in the city centre it is on the way to Chishingtan pebbled beach and definitely worth a stop.More

The pancakes are excellent, both sweet and savory. You can have it as proper meals and also as desserts. Apple pies and butter pies are super good too. I love the environment of the restaurant, it's clean, cozy and comfortable. But mostly how kind and...friendly Jany is as a person to talk to. She'll definitely make you feel at home! So, make sure to come and visit the only Dutch restaurant here in Hualien. And try out the unique and authentic Dutch pancakes!More

Jany was very pleasant and gave us excellent recommendations for both a savory and sweet pancake. We had a lamb, onion and fig as the savory option and a candied ginger pancake as the sweet option. Both were delicious. She sat and chatted with us...for some time and gave us some helpful information about Hualien and Taroko. Even though her restaurant is a bit out of town it is definitely worth taking the time to get there! We hope to make it back again during our stay here in Hualien.More

I fully recommend paying Yani's Dutch pancake house a visit! I enjoyed the pancakes and the apple pie was delicious as well. The place is nicely decorated and Yani, the owner, is very friendly and welcoming. We had a nice long chat in Dutch and...she gave me some good tips for visiting Hualien. She even let me use one of her bikes for the afternoon! I'll definitely visit Yani again if I ever go back to Hualien.More

The pancakes were thick and big, just like they should be. The flavour was amazing and variety of choices was mind blowing. Something for everyone. Jany, the owner and chef, is a friendly and welcoming host with lots of knowledge on pancakes and the Netherlands....The apple pie was also very good and not to forget the self-made lemonade. Everything was great and a good distraction from feeling home-sick whilst living here in Taiwan. Definitely worth the visit. Also a great value for money!More
