My Old Dutch (Chelsea)

Let me first off start by saying I definitely know about food, and what this place serves up, isn't it!

We stopped into My Old Dutch for a nice, quick spot of lunch on Saturday afternoon. The restaurnant was buzzy and busy which we took to be a great sign. We were seated relatively quickly but that's about the only good thing I can say about this place. We waited over half an hour for two pancakes which finally turned up, served to us by the most unenthusiastic waiter. We order a banana pancake with ice cream and chocolate sauce. The pancake itself was ok but nothing outstanding and certainly nothing I couldn't have done a thousand times better myself. The bananas in the pancake were burnt on the bottom, the vanilla ice cream was watery and uninspiring. The chocolate sauce was more like anaemic kiddie pudding. For this, we had the pleasure of paying over £8 per pancake. What an utter rip off. This place may have been good once upon a time but if you come across it today run ... run far away.
