After having this place recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give it a try. When we first walked in to the restaurant, we waited about fifteen minutes to be seated. This wasn't a huge deal but they did have extra seating downstairs and for some reason they didn't want to seat people there. After finally being seated... More

I wish I could rate the service and food separately. As I can't I have given this an 'Average' rating. The pancakes are very good, but the service is terrible. The location is very busy and the staff seem to be short. It took forever to order, and then to pay the bill. I would definitely recommend not going to... More

We went for desserts on monday because we heard you get some discount on monday, and so it was. We had two enormous pancakes, one with maple and butter (which was amazing) and the other with banana and chocolate sauce (which was good). We were 3 people and we couldn't finish it. It was very very good!! The place was... More

I wrote a review earlier and that review was for the food only! revisited this place as I wanted another chocolaty pancake! But this time around it was the worst! Service is absolutely dreadful! Long wait for any service! food, drinks, bill! The dessert was the highlight of this place in my first visit. So I wanted one after my... More

It's a really good place, very cosy. Best price on Monday and I need to tell you that the sweet crepes are the best :)

Been to My Old Dutch in Holborn for this first time this noon with my girlfriend and had a awkward experience. The manager was VERY VERY VERY arrogant towards the staff, shouting at them and acting like a slave master... This totally ruined my experience, couldn't even finish my meal... I wanted to literally stand up and punch the guy,... More

I have visited the Holborn restaurant as well as the Chelsea one in Kings Road, but the Holborn one wins in terms of service and efficiency. I come here regularly, at least once a month, and I am always impressed and content with the food. My personal favourites are the butterscotch pancakes with berries and cream, as well as the...

If we had not wait for 1 hour to get 4 plates of pancakes, I would've given 5-stars as the pancakes were nice. We were having a little birthday celebration for my friend, so I order for one plate of pancakes with a candle to be served after our dinner, but the waiter was too careless that he served that...

I popped in for lunch, started with a portion of bitterballen. They were freshly fried and tasty, but then I had an awful portion of poorly warmed up poffertjes, the butter never even started to melt on them. These poffertjes are not freshly made,they taste as if they are prepared somewhere else and are then warmed up in the microwave,... More

We seem to find our way here every couple of years or so - used to luv it, but it has definitely not kept up the standard as the prices have crept up. Visited for tea on 28 October. A big plus was the gluten free Amsterdammer - but I had to search around for the apple and bacon -... More
