Full description
Cruise for 1 hour on the IJ river and notice how Amsterdam changes. Pass awe-inspiring modern buildings, sense old buildings disappear, and see new jewels like the EYE Film Museum arise. In summer, maybe even encounter impressive cruise ships at the shipyard. In a relaxed atmosphere, tuck into the all-you-can-eat pancake buffet. The buffet includes freshly baked natural, apple, and bacon pancakes, and all sorts of delights to garnish your pancakes, like cheese, ham, fruits, jams, and eggs. Gluten-free and lactose-free options are also available. Especially for young guests, there is a large playroom filled with balls in the hold of the boat so they don't get bored. The departure destination is easily accessible by taking the free ferry from Central Station.

3.5 / 5 stars. Pancakes were delicious with a wide variety of toppings. Inadequate directions were problematic; unfortunately, we were unable to reach support. Due to the "children's paradise" (ball pool) it was sometimes a bit louder. Staff was super friendly. Drink prices a bit expensive but that is usually not to be expected otherwise

Just great! You really get as many pancakes as you want. Without waiting for the previous or the next table to receive theirs. The young waiter was very nice and personable. The atmosphere on the boat was great and very cozy, as the boat is closed all around, the heavy rain outside didn't bother us either. We would do it again anytime.

Delicious pancakes, as much as you like or can do in the hour (during the boat trip). There are various syrups and toppings to go with it. I would have expected a larger selection (for example, fresh items such as fruit or cream). The selection may have been a bit smaller due to the corona. But it was also delicious. It wasn't too crowded (when we were there), so it was easy to get supplies. The route wasn't too spectacular. In principle it was the route of the ferry to the main train station and back.
