Well run, good food, can handle groups

This is a well run restaurant that has a bar area, several rooms and some private rooms for groups. Very lively atmosphere and the food is very good. This location is also great, especially in the summer when they open up to the outside. The town is very pretty and quaint. Makes a great setting... read more

After finding out that the waiting time at Café Loetje was 1,5 hours (on a Friday evening) we went to Loetje a/d Amstel where the waiting time was only 30 minutes. If you like your meat done in butter, this is the place, if you prefer grilled meat, go somewhere else. The salad was soggy, warm and tasteless. French fries... More

Loetje has several restaurants with great steaks to enjoy all day (be sure to take the full monty with salad and fries). There's also a lunch menu if you something more light and there are a variety of salads. This restaurant has free parking and a terrace.

This restaurant is almost always packed. And why? Because they actually do the best steak you have ever eaten. Steak prepared to perfection with different awesome sauces. Very very good spot. Everything is superb, but the steaks are better than superb. Or did I mention that already?

Great restaurant! It is our second time in this restaurant, and the food was still to die for. We ordered the carpaccio first, and then the Bali steak. The carpaccio is amazingly good, and the steaks are awesome. We will go back for sure.

I would not compare Loetje with the big chains like MD or BK but there is a similarity.You know what's on the menu, how it taste and that you get good quality. And for Loetje aan de Amstel we can add the great location with private parking on top. The comparison with worlds best know chains is not negative intended!!... More

Had dinner here with two friends very nice place, it's in a historic area outside of Amsterdam, the steaks were very very good, absolutely packed with people but felt a very nice fun atmosphere and not noisy, would recommend for business or leisure, would recommend you book ahead. Try the Bali steak!

Good place to eat, not that expensive, plates and size of servings are more than sufficient. The place is always fully booked and busy, but it's nice and the atmosphere is pleasant. Good thing about Loetje is that is has it's own parking place, because in the area it's quite difficult to find descent parking there.

Although the menu does not offer many options, when you go to Loetje you mainly eat meat. They serve a pretty good steak, Dutch style (with a melted butter sauce). I personally like better the "Bali" with a little spice (sambal) added. they also have a few salads, carpaccio and my favorite: garnalen bitterballen! Perfect place to go with friends... More

I visit Loetje often (usually in Laren or Amsterdam)... in this restaurant the food was good too, but the service was horrible, especially the arrogant guy at reception. My company booked one of the few rooms on the first floor, yet he could not find the booking and told me "there is not much I can do, go and wait... More
