Excellent Dutch food and their steak specials. Portions are very big. Nice cozy atmosphere, friendly staff. It's a famous place, and seems to be appreciated both by tourists and locals. Not particularly cheap, but probably in line with Amsterdam prices.

Came here following the good reviews, went for the steak with frites and salad. About 25 euro per person which is reasonable. The food was great best steak I’ve had in. Months - highly recommend - consider booking if a fri or sat night

Young and old crowd with a lively atmosphere. Well known for its Steak and fries (Bali sauce steak is amazing if you like spicy food). Friendly waiters, good service and reasonable prices. One of my favorite places in Amsterdam.

Try the biefstuk bali... That a bit spicy stake.. simply amazing. And don't miss the fries! All this goes well with a glass of wine or a beer.

Quite expensive even though the food was good. The best that I can say is that the staff are great. My "broodje paling" was very disappointing, the eel was dry and cold.

Cafe Loetje is famous of their steaks and for a very good reason. It's not cheap, but it's great value for money, as the quality of ingredients and the level of cooking is very high. We skipped the starters and went straight to mains. Beef...More

I think I remember young children in high chairs and toddlers, but to be honesty friendly is not a term I would use for the restaurant.
