We loved this little place with traditional dutch food. The service was great with very friendly helpful staff. The sea bass excellent and the chicken satay mild.

I tried this place to get some Dutch food. I was actually the only one in here but it was really good and the draft beer was great. Definitely a good spot for lunch and a pretty good location for shopping or museums.

FOOD IS D I S G U S T I N G The food quality, especially the meat, is poor and shoddy. Meat is spicy, in the attempt to cover its indecorous quality. The cheese fondue TOTALLY tasteless. Again poor cheese quality. The only positive...More

They will do takeaway but it won’t travel well. Has to be hot out of the oven or why bother?

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
