I think that entrance dishes shouldn't be brought at the same time as the main dish, there should be some time gap in between because my main dish got cold while I was eating my entrance dish. Overall, the food and service were great.

Nice place and nice food, the table was ready when we got there. Service was a little slow compared to other places, but it was a Saturday lunch so we were expecting that. Nice overall, definitely worth trying it out.

Pretty good overall. I really loved the interior, the staff were friendly, service good, they have an extensive menu incl vege, vegan and GF options (all pancakes can be made GF I believe), and the food was good - I'm not a sweet tooth person so went for a savoury option, as did those dining with me = salmon and mushrooms + chilli con carne + seafood. Big portions, and all seemed content with their choice.

Lovely atmosphere, kind staff and very tasty food. As a Dutchman, I'm amazed by the variety of options offered for the toppings of the pancakes - haven't thought of many myself. Food for thought!

We were welcomed in. Spacing was good. So much to choose from. Spoilt for choice. Our waiter was polite and very friendly. We even asked to take away what we couldn't eat and they were more than happy to help. Will go back again and again. Great value.

Pancakes are actually average, but the meat and veg toppings that they have tase like frozen toppings you find on budget pizza. If you go, don’t go for the savoury options. Smoothies are also below par.

Come here quite often and usually bring friends who’ve never been and they are always so happy with the pancakes
Brought my sister in law today and she absolutely loved it
It was very quiet due to the current situation but great non the less
Can’t wait to return

First time visiting the Old Dutch, but will definitely return on our next visit to London.
The pancakes were great. We could not get over the size if them. We had a selection of sweet and savory and they tasted amazing.
Visiting the Old Dutch is a must.
