I have been here twice with two colleagues and we have all been very happy about the food and the service. The main focus of the restaurant is on dutch pancakes (either sweet or not) and I would advise you to get one of those....More

Oudt Leyden is located in the city centre of Leiden. It offers authentic Dutch pancakes and other food. It's honestly the only food I ever miss when going on a big trip.

We've quickly become regulars of this place, their pancakes (or rather crepes perhaps?) are just superb. The ham and cheese is a Friday night classic for us. The staff is also quite friendly, and the place is very centrally located. Definitely recommended.

I had a very good Caeser Salad and a beer for lunch here today. Excellent service and a nice outdoor view.

This place is really great. Pannenkoeken are huge (do not confuse them with pancakes or even crepes) and delicious. It's a vintage restaurant where you can taste good food and the dutch hospitality.
