Neatly tucked on a scenic street near a canal, this restaurant is a gem. If you are seeking great food, with a lively atmosphere, and top notch service, this is the restaurant for you! My advice to you would be to secure reservations early and be prepared to wait for parking...as this restaurant is always busy. The staff are friendly... More

Every time we are craving for a good steak we go here for dinner. My brother described his first bite as "it melts in your mouth". My daughters also love the creme brulee for dessert. And last time we were there, their dessert special rasberry cheesecake was also delicious. If you don't mind having an early dinner, get there before... More

Very crowded on a Friday night... As you can't make reservations we had to wait over an hour to be seated.... The steaks are really good, that was why we decided to stay. But the might have to change their reservation policy though!

Had diner with a business relation on a wednesday night. The place was packed. We had a small table, seated very close to the neighbouring guests. The waitress was eager to take our order. When we finished our main course it took us half an hour to order some coffees. And the restrooms had nog paper left at the sinks.... More

Was over for a very brief work visit to Amsterdam and got taken here by a couple of colleagues... one of the very best steaks I've had for a long time. I had the Bali Steak given I enjoy my spice, and the gravy was perfect, spicy yet did not detract from the flavour of the steak. The service was... More

Wow I had a Bali steak (hot and spicy) on the advice of a friend. Awesome (was sorry I didn't have the large one). Salad and chips the best also! Really worth a detour.

I came to this steak restaurant with some locals and was not disappointed. While we waited for a table we tried the bitteballen and beer. For dinner I had the steak in sauce, mushrooms and salad. The ambiance is warm and homey and the food is good. The service was just ok- but the type of place where you need... More

This is how granny cooked a steak in Holland, medium rare with a nice gravy, that you soak up with fresh white bread. The gravy is nothing more than the margarine the steak was cooked in, but they manage to get a nicely browned. So do not expect any fancy sauce, just indulge and enjoy it the Dutch way. Sides...

Have been to Loetje several times over the last few years, it has always improved over time. But as of late it seems that with all its fame and glory it is now going downhill, the last few times service and food quality has declined. This can always be due to the reason that they have become so popular, is... More

We have cycled from Amsterdam along the Amstel and stopped here for lunch. The food was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return!
