This is a place that we always go to when we are Aruba. The food is really outstanding! The desert was really yummy and the dinners are big enough to split.

Recommended by a crew member from our cruise ship we easily walked to this restaurant from the dock. Located across the street from the Renaissance Hotel and behind a casino there is a small Retail dining center. The Dutch Pancake house anchors one of the corners with a view to the sea There was a five page menu with so... More

Our fav spot at the Ren Marketplace. As others have stated, these are not "American" pancakes, but more like a hearty crepe. I loved them because you could get sweet (with loads of berries) or savory (ham, salami etc). The servers here were fantastic and very efficient. Remembered us each day. Was a nice way to start the morning!

The food was very good, we had both dinner pancakes as well as desert pancakes. Both tasted very good, fruits that came with the desert pancake was fresh and tasted well. Our waiter was very service orientated, but it took some time before we got the food. I think it was due to the work done in the kitchen.

We came here for both breakfast and dinner. Breakfast has traditional Dutch pancakes, as well as flat crepes with all sorts of add-ons. Really delicious. The dinner choices are more limited but their specialty is schnitzel prepared in a variety of ways. Very good and prices are reasonable. Definitely recommend.

We loved the breakfast food. The pancakes were super thin like a crepe but not too sweet and full of toppings. They gave free refills on coffee. Don't go on Sunday. You'll have a wait.

Great pancakes. Don't go if you are looking for American pancakes. These are very thin, like crepes and only one is served since it takes up the whole plate.- Use the Dutch syrup, it's great.

Dropped by on our last morning in Aruba. Had to wait just a bit for a table - obviously a popular spot! The "pancakes" are fantastic and very filling! They are really crepes with very interesting toppings - I had ham, pineapple and cheese! If you come to Aruba, you have to try the pancakes!

Thank kjb11
