Went here with friends after visiting one of the museums, had a perfect cosy Dutch feel in contrast to the cold day outside, food was hearty and warming and exactly what we were looking for. Service was very friendly too. We went on the back of reviews here and were not disappointed 😁

If you're visiting the beautiful city of Amsterdam and want to try a very good dutch meal, then this restaurant is the place to go. It's excellent, reasonably priced, and offers a great choice of traditional dutch food. I attended here along with 4 friends and didn't have a reservation prior to attending. Fortunately, we were brought in very quickly... More

Located very close to Leidseplein, this restaurant is located close to loads of other restaurants, most of which are tourist traps. The Pantry is rather small, but very characteristic, with a local menu at very competitive prices. It is the ideal place to try some local dishes in a nice environment with polite and efficient staff. The food was warm... More

We were able to get a table for 6 in an otherwise packed restaurant. The staff were friendly and we were able to enjoy good, dutch food! We didn't feel rushed, and everyone enjoyed their meals! The beef stew was great and the hutspot combination entree didn't disappoint!

We wanted a traditional Dutch meal, and the Pantry offered exactly that, in a laid back, cozy atmosphere. Large menu at affordable prices.

This was by far my favorite meal while in Amsterdam. Hearty, delicious, and authentic. I had the hutspot with a meatball, which I am now eager to try and recreate at home. My husband had the Zuurkoolstamppot. For dessert, we shared poffertjes - simple but so delicious with butter and powdered sugar. I look forward to returning to Amsterdam and... More

Stumbled upon this tiny traditional dutch gem by accident, and were lucky enough to grab a table for two (a stream of people were turned away just after us but you can reserve) A warm and pleasant atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff and the food was a delicious taste of the traditional meals. My boyfriend had the eels to... 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
