Amazing pancakes (we ordered the chocolate sauce, ice cream and whipped cream one & the lemon and sugar one) and amazing service; very friendly staff. The atmosphere was lovely, as was the interior design. Definitely a must-go!

The ham and cheese pancake was both under done and burnt on top. They were also out of eggs....even though they have omelettes on the menu. I would not recommend this place.

We went here with our Amsterdam friends. Nothing much to look at from the outside, but a queue at the door, which is always a good sign. Attentive staff, but basic tables. However, the food was lovely, a great choice of pancakes, both sweet and savoury. We couldn't manage a sweet after the savoury. Very reasonable for the centre of... More

Had a fantastic breakfast here. Pancakes are to die for but make sure you book, there are queues to get in!

My wife and I came in here on a quiet night in Amsterdam and enjoyed our meal. I ordered the venison steak and had a variety of local beers.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. It has a combination of traditional Dutch food and food that you'd see on a higher end American restaurant. What was really nice was that they offered any dish for kids, just a smaller portion and at half the price! Two out of our three kids like to eat off the... More

This is such a nice little restaurant in a nice area in Amsterdam. We went on a quiet Sunday night (usually full on Fridays and Saturdays). I mentioned I was gluten-free (sensitivity) and the waitress sat down and went over all the dishes I could eat. I had a sautéed fish which was fantastic. Really friendly and helpful staff. Would...

This is a cosy, busy little spot on the Prinsengracht. Nice cocktail aperitifs, and a pleasant meal. I tried the tuna and it was cooked beautifully, Ali g with a green salad and fries. Expensive for what it was but hey, it's Amsterdam. Overall, a nice night out, would go again
