We ate here on one of our nights in Amsterdam. Side note- it is about a 15 minute walk from the museums so you may want to book a reservation on a day you are doing so. I would recommend booking a reservation- you can do so online via email. I ate here with m family which consisted of two... More

Prefect place to try the traditional dutch dishes. They have a couple different three course menus starting at $19 which aside from being an outstanding value gives a great experience. The staff were all very friendly and answered whatever local questions you may have. Very tiny though so unless you go at an odd hour you likely want to make... More

We had pre booked this restaurant so we didn't have to que as Easter weekend and very busy everywhere. Simple menu so easy to make a choice. We went for the sausage / meatball with various mashed potato. All in all a lovely meal service was friendly and efficient. Would recommend and maybe book if possible.

The Pantry is a very nice small place in the City Centre, close to Rijksmuseum. Ideal to taste the traditional Dutch cuisine. It is better to make a reservation if you intend to come here (we passed by and tried to take a seat here but there was no chance on Saturday evening. Even on Sunday evening I was lucky... More

I had the set menu, my husband chose from regular menu. We both enjoyed very much - substantial food, not over-sophisticated but well-cooked. Very efficient service. Small restaurant so make a reservation in advance

If you want to experience Dutch cooking at its best then search out The Pantry but be warned you need to be really hungry! The service is very friendly, quick for such food and its home cooked. The ideal place for a family Dutch food experience. We lived it.

Wanted to try somewhere that served typical dutch food, and this place had good reviews. Booked around 10 days in advance by e-mail. It is small and homely, though you are close to other diners. Enjoyed the food, we had soup to start and Combination of hutspot, boerenkool- and zuurkoolstamppot served with a smoked sausage or a meatball. Would recommend.

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
