Seven work friends have just enjoyed a delicious lunch at My Old Dutch. We ate a mixture of savoury pancakes (chilli con carne, duck, Greek, asparagus and MOD) one sweet pancake (apple and cinnamon) and salad and fries. All were delicious and filling. I want to make a special mention about the staff, all of whom were friendly, polite, quick... More

Came here when meeting friends. Huge Pancakes, and really enjoyable fillings, everyone enjoyed what they had. The milkshakes are also really great. Will return again when back in london!

It's a 3 minute walk from Holborn underground station. Was actually heading towards Dominoes to get pizza when I passed by this shop. I mean who can resist pancakes right? 😆 staff was nice and initiatively told me that there was a £5 something deal but I could not use it if I wanna order what I wanted. So i... More

We went here for dinner as a group of 8 friends. The pancakes were huge and there is plenty of things to choose from on the menu. Who would've thought that your humble pancake could be turned into such a delicious meal? Go for an oreo milkshake to go with it - the oreo to ice cream ratio is just... More

A quick visit before going to The British Museum, and it did the job. The food was very nice, but the surroundings are cramped and shabby. Someone was complaining about the state of the toilets and their was an air of grubbiness. Very busy and constant turnover of people.

The positive of My Old Dutch is that the food is nice and different to your average restaurant. However, that's if you can stick out the long wait to get the food and can heckle a waiter. When two of us turned up for a 3 person table, we were told by the soldier version of a waiter at the... More

Went with a group of friends and we all had savoury pancakes. Found them to be very greasy and sloppy with cheap ingredients used on them, none of us enjoyed the food. The toilets were disgusting and smelly with flies and toilet roll all over the floor. Will not be returning.

They've got an enormous variety of pancakes. Dutch pancakes and American pancakes they have those both. Ask for their specialities and they'll truly suggest you the best. You'll get both sweet and savoury selections and I can vouch for both. Poffertjes are good enough though I personally didn't like it. Eggs florentine is my personal favourite from the Savoury selections.... More

Decent food, a bit expensive and a bit too noisy. Decoration is quite nice, quite friendly staff. It's a good place to have a pancake from time to time.

We ordered the poffertjes fruit & ice cake to share. The order took a long time to appear from the kitchen but we suspect that was due to the waitress forgetting to submit our order, which arrived shortly after we inquired about its whereabouts. The serving wasn't particularly large, the presentation of dishes leads to that perception. We were slightly... More
