Description: MENU Looks has a small menu that changes every 6 weeks. Oysters, Entrecote and Lobster are always available. The changing menu is always surprising and refreshing. We cook with all seasons and preparing the classic ingredients with a personal twist. We want you as our guest to have a pleasant experience at Looks Dining. LOCATION Amsterdam's Chinatown has a long history when it comes to food. Looks situated in the center, a forest of canals, bridges and 16th century buildings. The wide range of old asian restaurants, Looks stands out immediately. The first impression of the two ancient monumental buildings. But if you open the door you enter a warm, modern, international, urban occasion. At the entrance the kitchen, staff greets you kindly. With an open kitchen, guests can immediately see that we work with fresh products The building consists of many different levels connected by stairs. The rooms have their own character and look. Through a lot of levels and the use of illuminated glass creates a unit.

“Canadian lobster in Amsterdam”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Canadian lobster or "CANADESE KREEFT" is a "MUST" main course to try out while in LOOKS. Chardonnay from Argentina would be the perfect match for it. For dessert we had the dessert of the day which was one of the best dessert ideas i ever came across; cinnamon parfait ice cream with cinnamon marshmallow, crumble, raspberry and popping candy which created a fizzy reaction while dissolving in the mouth! The prices were reasonable for the quality of food. The service was OK even though an explanation related to the origin of the lobsters and their transport to Amsterdam could have made the whole concept more interesting. The deco in the restaurant could also benefit from some more novel ideas to match its menu. Overall it was a good experience and i would therefore go back to this restaurant.

“Great food, matching service”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We had a three course dinner. Oysters, entrecote and cheese and vegetable terrine, lobster and cheese rspectively with the fitting wine menu. Except for the wine for the desert, that was not to our taste but would probably suit other people just as well, everything was perfect. Very friendly knowledgeable staff. A definite recommendation!

“So good went back a 2nd time.”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

When visiting Amsterdam, we went the first time with friends. They have a small menu so with 6 of us at the table, we sampled many things. Everything was prepared beautifullly with lots of flavors on each plate. It was quiet so we could talk without shouting in a noisy restaurant. It is very centrally located and easy to find.
The second time only my husband and I went and Maaik took great care of us with a four course dinner for the 2 of us. We couldn't even eat it all though we definitely tried.
I highly recommend this restaurant to get away from the noise of the city and just relax.

“Stunning service”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We went to Looks on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We were of group of 8 over from London. The service was friendly, extremely professional, the waiting staff were very knowledgeable on all the menu choices and described the food as each course was presented. The food itself was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. And at the end they made us a stunning birthday desert special. Really appreciated. Thanx
