After paying a visit to a special event at the Amersfoort Zoo with friends with kids, we traditionally have dinner at De Kabouterhut. This place is not redecorated for 15 years or so but therefor it kept it's warm and friendly interior. Especially with an event like this at the zoo it's peak hour at this restaurant, but no problem... More

It looks old fashioned and it is, plus it's not done well at all. Spicy chicken in children's menu, completely dry turkey. The pancake was quite reasonably done but that was it. Will never come back even though its location next to zoo is great.

The restaurant is ideally located nearby the zoo of Amersfoort. It is decorated with the theme of dwarfs and each table had coloured pens and paper with little games for kids and adults to fill in or solve (little maths problems, words to guess etc.). The pannenkoeken were very tasty and big. Clean facilities. Would definitely return if we go... More

Have been here lots of times over the years when on holiday in the Netherlands- this was my first time with kids. Very friendly staff and lots to keep the kids amused. Pancakes are amazing. Highly recommended.

Go for the 'pannenkoeken' any flavor and you'll be hooked for life on this typical tasty dutch dish, which is not only appreciated by kids.

I have never seen a place where you can order so many different things to go on a pancake. The prices aren't too bad for pancakes the size of the place...and there is a children's area for kids to go and play. There was a lot of decoration in the way of gnomes for ambiance.

First I must say the food was fantastic, but a few things spoiled a celebration which we had. we first checked to see how late it was open and the response was that the kitchen was open to 9:00 PM. when we arrived on the door the pancake area was open only to 8:00PM and the other restaurant area was...
