The pantry serves good and tasty food. It is in the heart of a restaurant district and has the ambiance to match: crowded and overlooking a street busy with foot traffic. This is likely a positive for most people as it adds fun to the dining experience. We got the traditional sausage and mashed potatoes. One version had beef and... More

My wife and I enjoy comfort food from many cultures. The Pantry served us up heaping portions of what they call "Traditional Dutch Cooking". Yes, it's that -- it's the food you want when you're really cold, or hungry, or upset, or when something ails you. And they do it well. The area in Leidesplein around The Pantry is chock-a-block...

Located in buzzing street, the restaurant is really a hidden gem. I loved the food, the interior and the service. We had 2 dishes, "3 combinations of mashed potatos mixed, toped with a sausage and gravy sauce" and "pea soup" and "goat cheese croquet" .. all dishes were so nice :)) the interior of the restaurant is so pleasant as...

Found this little gem online. It's a typical Dutch restaurant serving excellent food, the atmosphere is very friendly and the service fantastic. We found this by accident while looking for somewhere to eat during our last visit to Amsterdam a few days ago and will definitely come again. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a great night out. The... More

Billed as a traditional Dutch restaurant, it delivered and we had a very pleasant dinner. Modestly priced and well located in the heart of the city. There are several prix fixe menus as well as a la carte. Service is friendly and efficient.

We originally found this resaurant via Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. Quite charming, we were told by the waiter that it's typical of a Dutch grandmother's sitting room. Great food (and very large portions), both of us had the mashed potatoes mixed with various things like kale and sauerkraut with sausage/meatball. The sausage was average but the meatball was...

My wife & I had read many reviews from trip advisor for restaurants near to Rykmuseum. The Pantry was well mentioned see we tried to book. We had to wait for 1.5-hrs, time for a pre-meal drink. At the restaurant we found that the place was bursting at the seams with diners, whilst most of the adjoining eating locations were... More

This place has a charm, with tables pressing on each other inside plus an outdoor area. The service was fast and friendly and the food was tasty and hot. Nothing fancy.

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
