I've been living in Amsterdam for the past while and I can safely say these are the BEST poffertjes I have had so far...go for the 12 euro plate to share with all the trimmings...amazing!!

Good service and excellent food in lovely surroundings. Poffertjes are especially tasty with fruit and syrup.

Stopped there late in the afternoon and had the poffertjes. Ordered 15, but 10 would have been enough. There were really good with and without syrup. Service was a little shaky, but overall the servers did their job and were nice. Located by the canal across from the Marriott and near the Casino. Definitely worth to try these Dutch treats.

After finishing up on a cruise on the AMACello we were staying at the Marriott seeing the sites before heading to the airport to go home. We were family so we had ages 12 - 85 to satisfy. This was an ideal spot for lunch. The restaurant is located in the middle of where everything is going on and right by a canal. The crepes were very good, with a choice of sweet or savory. Most of us split a sweet and a savory. Everyone liked being able to watch the crepes being made and chatting with the chef. What was there not to like. We were all glad that the obvious choice was the right one.

This place obviously draws in the custom thanks to its position : under the shade of leafy trees, overlooking a canal, what more could you want.... Feeling I had not given Dutch cuisine a fair go I decided to order the poffertjes with fresh strawberries and cream. They were nice enough, but somehow underwhelming. Also, at the risk of sounding like a real swine I would have preferred having more strawberries and cream for the twelve poffertjes I was given... Service seemed to be university students, over-run and forgetful. Overall ok, but I was left desiring the strawberries and cream far more than the poffertjes themselves...
