A perfect place to meet up with my friends in Amsterdam. Great, friendly service. Good local simple dishes. Hearty and warming on a cold April evening. Exactly what we hoped for.

Tiny place, a little hard to find, but recommended at our hotel. We were greeted and quickly seated. A wide choice of items to choose from, and fortunately a menu in both Dutch and English. Very good service, and ambience. We would recommend highly.

We ate in the outside tables, in one of the streets of the Red Light district. Excellent traditional food and nice service. The waiter who served us was really accurate and helped us with the choice of the food. Absolutely recommended!

If you skip the bread you probably call the vegetarian meals gluten free. I’m sure they could adjust the dishes adapt to a sensitive needs person

My teenager chose the satay chicken and although he ate most food f it he really didn’t like it. My other son had steak and chips and loved it. I had the Sea bass and it was delicious. Good luck enjoy 😃

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
