“Really good stakes”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

One of the best stakes I've eaten in Europe. Reaaallly tasty!!
Good Belgium beers (in those kid-size glasses but it's the same in whole Netherlands :p ) .
Service is fast (taking into account the busyness of this place the speed it fantastic!). The waitress do not have own areas which is probably helping to make it all faster.
If you don't have reservation better come at 6 the latest because otherwise you will spend some time at the bar waiting for a table. It's getting really busy at 7pm.
They have strange custom of serving one salad and one portion of french fries per 2 people. Which can be a bit awkward if you going there with people you've just met :)

“fantastic steak”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

went out of our way to go here after reading reviews on this forum and we weren't disappointed! they made it easy for us to make a reservation and took care of us from the moment we came in. and we were delighted we booked a table as the restaurant was jammed from about half six on. everyone got the steak and chips and they were absolutely gorgeous! we finished off with a lovely dessert too (apple pie and ice cream was amazing). the staff were really helpful too and are a credit to the place. the dinner was really reasonable too, only €16 for a really quality fillet steak.

if you are in amsterdam make sure you check this place out!

“Incredibly tasty, tender and juicy steaks!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Loetje is definitely one of the best steak houses I've ever been too. The place is lively, relaxed and comfortable, and the meat is just amazing! A must to visit in Amsterdam!

“Dinner at Loetje”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Loetje is always great in price performance. Good food with enjoyable horse meat served. Most of the times all tables are fully occupied and service is okay.

“Best steaks in Amsterdam”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Despite the dime-a-dozen Argentinian steak houses, be sure to visit Loetje for a traditional steak! Especially the gravy makes this a delicious treat. Excellent side dishes like the potato salad are also top-notch.

Very traditional Dutch eatery feeling to it as well.
