My Old Dutch - Holborn
Gorging. So much Gorging.Great food and a lot of it. Swift service and decent value for money, especially considering the location and the amount of food that is included in a serving. I had a savoury pancake (smoked duck, delicious) and a sweet one (apple and cinnamon, very tasty), but I was bursting at the seams afterwards and I can eat a lot. Would definitely recommend it, great place to eat out. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with good service. Excellent.01/06/2013 00:00:00Brilliant!I've been to the restaurant 4 times now, and twice for birthdays. It's a lovely, friendly place that has a very relaxed atmosphere and a great place to try something new and a bit different. The portions are massive, and Great value for money- we've never managed to have a desert as well, although they have a great selection and it's nice to share afterwards if you fancy something sweet. The service is great, and the staff are very polite although the Holborn branch is a little small and does feel a bit cramped a times but there is a downstairs area that is more open. Overall, a really great place to go for dinner- with a huge food selection although not a huge variety of drinks.29/05/2013 00:00:00Good restaurant and good food!I liked the food a lot - nothing to complain about. Although, on the day, they didn't have the 'smoked duck pancake main', the substitute was still good.
Good quick service - no messing about.
Nice environment for a long conversation28/05/2013 00:00:00Yummy apple pieThe décor is pleasant and the place is very clean. I had a Mediterranean pancake with artichoke, cheese,olives and sun-dried tomatoes. The toppings were a bit sparse but the pancake tasted fresh and the whole thing was a delicious combination. My sister had the chilli con carne pancake which she thoroughly enjoyed. I especially recommend the apple pie for dessert. It was absolutely delicious. This place is not cheap. I would class it as mid-range, but the food and service were both great and we left very satisfied.24/05/2013 00:00:00Nice restaurant and the qualityNice restaurant and the quality of the food is good, just a pity that the pancakes are not authentic Dutch.21/05/2013 00:00:00Delicious Dutch pancakesPortions are huge, food delicious.
Ambience is so-so but for a quickish meal it doesn't matter. Price is also reasonable. If you go on Mondays most pancakes are only £5, even better!21/05/2013 00:00:00Great food, bad serviceFood was delicious, and so many tasty options on the menu! However, service was slow, and 2 of our desserts arrived at least 10 minutes before the other. When we asked about where the missing dessert was we were just told it took longer to cook - why could they not time it so all were ready at once? After this, the original 2 were cleared from the table while I was still eating mine.
Overall, would definitely go back as the food was great, and hopefully the service issue was a one-off! Lovely end to an afternoon at the theatre!18/05/2013 00:00:00Dinner with a friendHad a lovely dinner there with a good friend. It s perfect for a relaxed evening, the crepes are amazing, and the menu gives so many options! Ideal for a night out when you want to have a good time without spending much. definitely good quality/price ratio!15/05/2013 00:00:00good value lunchBright, friendly, & busy: it dealt well with Bank Holiday numbers.

Quirky26/04/2013 00:00:00Massive pancake experienceThe best Pancakes i have ever had. This will be our new breakfast/brunch place. The fact that the pancakes are served in a massive plate just wows me!21/04/2013 00:00:00My Old Dutch is a lively,My Old Dutch is a lively, fuss free restaurant. Portions are generous and good value. Will definitely return.12/04/2013 00:00:00Very good experience, inexpensiveVery good experience, inexpensive and very good quality food. A perfect stop for a quick lunch, outing with children or a pre theatre bite to eat. Would definitely come back again.10/04/2013 00:00:00Really enjoyed ourselves!My boyfriend and I went to my old Dutch last week and had a great time! The service was good, the pancakes are huge and there are so many to pick from. We had a starter too, everything came out quickly and for 2 drinks, 2 pancakes and a sharer it came to £30 which I thought was pretty good considering the size of the pancakes!
The only thing that I wish you could do is to possibly have a selection of smaller pancakes so that you could try more of the toppings!02/04/2013 00:00:00Do you miss The Pancake place?If you do then get yourself down to this place - ten times better pancakes and alcohol to boot. Great service, no issues and good comfort food. What's not to like?02/03/2013 00:00:00Always goodBeen here many times over the years, always excellent service and great food.20/02/2013 00:00:00
