I went to this restaurant with two friends who visited me in Amsterdam because they wanted to try the pannenkoeken at last once and the places I knew were too far. The restaurant is in the middle of a little park, so the location is pleasant, but the pancakes were very plain. Moreover, our table was forward a broken windows so we were exposed to cold wind and raindrops, and when we complained they moved us to a table next to the previous one; there we were repaired from the raindrops but not from the cold.
I didn't like it at all.

Try the Poffertjes, you won't regret it! After a few other fails with authentic Dutch food at other locations, these were a true win! I'm just sad I don't have enough time here to get them again!

I had never heard of Poffertjes, but they sounded good and sold as an "official Dutch treat". And a treat they are! Like little pancakes but they are plumper and about two inches wide. There is a plaque on the building describing the difference between them and pancakes. Definitely something to try, you win't regret it! I had them with strawberries and whipped cream, lookig forward to another chance to have them!
