Very decadent and wide variety of delicious regular and Dutch pancakes as well as waffles. Really delicious and in a relaxed location. Definitely a place to visit if you are in town and like your pancakes!

We stopped at the Carousel before hitting a museum on Mother's Day. It was my daughter's first time in Amsterdam and we'd just arrived the night before. It was fantastic. Great breakfast/brunch options - the crepes and Dutch pancakes were unbelievable, the service was excellent and the people watching on the porch made it all a very memorable experience.

We enjoyed pancakes at several recommended restaurants De Sneeker Pan, the Pancake Bakerym and Carousel. Carousel was our favourite. Good selection of sweet and savory pancakes, waffles and other food. Nice big veranda located in a well shaded park.

Poffertjes are little round dutch pancakes. They're delicious! The ones at the Carousel Pancake House were fresh and hot, served with a ton of powdered sugar. The favorites were strawberry chocolate and banana chocolate. The fruit and chocolate are served to the side of the little pancakes so they don't get soggy. My family had to go back a second...

Fantastic venue, serving delicious poffertjes, cold beer as well as pancakes and other light refreshments. A fun place, with very pleasant and personable staff. This was a perfect place for a quick snack.

Holland doesn't have a nutrition problem, most people are tall, and healthy, but it does have a food problem. There are a million eateries and most of them are poor, not because the peoplecwho run them aren't decent well meaning human beings, but the food culture , especially in Amsterdam, in the reesonable price range, is simply terrible. This is... More

Came here on a recommendation and was not disappointed. The restaurant is easily accessible and the seating is based around a Carousel. The staff were very lovely and attentive and the food was so yummy! The portions were huge and it was all cooked fresh for us. Definitely recommend their dutch pancakes with strawberries and nutella.

This pancake house sits on the edge of a large playground where our kids liked to play, so we came here not once, but twice. There is a nice selection of both savory and sweet pancakes and Dutch treats. The food was good. The beer was cold. Both food and drinks are overpriced, but is located just across the street...

Delicious (reasonably priced!) food, lovely views of the park and authentic carousel vibes! A great place to go to try some classic Dutch desserts. Food was a solid 10/10 and serving sizes were generous.
