Beutiul location

Beautiful location near the water.Terrace in front is better then at the back. Famous steaks (biefstuk) but also the sandwiches during lunch are great. Has it's own parking place.

Loetje is famous in Amsterdam for the wonderful steaks, and they are indeed great. They have a few classic steaks that are all top notch and they bake them to perfection. Medium-rare is always exactly medium-rare etc.. The basic menu is quite simple and revolves around the steaks, with several side-orders such as fries, sautéed onions, salad etc. Each of... More

I had the bali steak - the meat was terrific quality and perfectly cooked (medium to rare) with a tasty sauce. The sauce, however, was mostly butter, almost a butter broth, with sambal cooked into it to add a spicy edge. I enjoyed it but can't help thinking you can do this way better if you reduce the amount of... More

This is not a high-class restaurant with Michelin-star dinners, but it has great atmosphere and great stakes (and other dishes) at reasonable prices. It is located in picturesque Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. It has a small terrace along the Amstel river for outside dinner or drinks in summer time. An added advantage is that it has its own free of...

Be there on time to get a parking place at the back and a table to have your meal. Always booked with locals and tourists so take your time to get your table (or just wait at the bar!) Top quality beef with french fries, simple but tasty!

Good beef, good service, good concept. At Loetje you know what you get and you wanted to have. I prefer the beef Bali and it never dissappoints. This time was with friends and all four left satisfied.

I have been told that this Resto had some awesome steaks, and I was not disappointed. The buttery sauce, the perfectly cooked steaks (they look like filet mignons) were awesome. The fries were just as excellent too. I know there were other dishes to chose from, as I saw other patrons' plates, those too looked great, I can only assume... More

When staying in the Amsterdam region, a steak dinner at Loetje is almost an obligation! Served in a traditionally Dutch way (with loads of gravy and bread to dip in the gravy) it doesn't get much better than sitting on the waterfront, drinking a glass of Merlot and enjoying a beautiful dinner in the sun!

Before going to the nearby Jewish Cemetery, we needed a warm cup of coffee. Service was nice, the coffee was good and we liked the ambience of this Dutch cafe.

Busy local restaurant in a fine picturesque location close to the Amstel. We had steaks (both beef and tuna). They don't ask you how you would like your steak cooked and it comes out perfect - meltingly tender. Tuna also very good. We had chips with mayonnaise and the house mixed salad as an accompaniment. This is quite a big... More
