Do Dutch food to a high quality, loved the ham and mustard sauce, my colleagues tried “Dutch stews” and were impressed. Friendly prompt service ideal for a business lunch. Glass of respectable white wine.

The Pantry is an excellent dutch restaurant near Leidsplein. It has few tables so it is almost necessary to reserve especially during week end. You will find the best from original dutch couisine in a friendly atmosphere. It is not particularly cheap but prices are...More

Loved this restaurant. It was a bit of a walk from our hotel but worth it. The food was all very tasty. The pictures don’t do it justice. All were amazingly tasty. Need to book as very busy.

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
