The restaurant offers a collection of simple yet sturdy dishes, involving potatoes, cabbage, pork and beef. Everything was very tasty, but best eaten during a cold winter day. The pop music in the background did ruin things a bit and reminded us that this is...More

Good and not so expensive typical Dutch dishes in the heart of tourist area. Spirit is authentic, service is on a friendly side of local range.

We wanted to have something traditional Dutch - so, we visited The Pantry. And we were absolutely happy with our experience. Highly recommended. Better to reserve your table in advance.

Here's where you duck out of the cold on your way to the Rijksmuseum and other sites nearby. You'll be greeted by warm, friendly staff who actually appear to love their jobs and their guests. And you'll get to order traditional Dutch treats like bittenballen...More

Hi there. Simply emailed and replied the next day. Our booking was made roughly a week in advance but I believe they had bookings available for the following night when we were there. So a few days would be a good bet. Hope... More

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
