We wanted to try the homestyle traditional Dutch cuisine and The Pantry provided that opportunity. From Bitterballens to the different type of potato mashes. Good hearty food in a warm and cosy atmosphere. Booking ahead recommended.

Enjoyed a really great authentic Dutch meal at The Pantry. The ambience of the restaurant and service were both exceptional. As the restaurant is small, reservations are highly recommended, but as I only needed a table for one, they were able to get me in...More

They will do takeaway but it won’t travel well. Has to be hot out of the oven or why bother?

If you skip the bread you probably call the vegetarian meals gluten free. I’m sure they could adjust the dishes adapt to a sensitive needs person

My teenager chose the satay chicken and although he ate most food f it he really didn’t like it. My other son had steak and chips and loved it. I had the Sea bass and it was delicious. Good luck enjoy 😃

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
