Description: Every season we have a different menu, with home made products like typical Belgian pates, pies and parfaits. Inspired by Belgium’s diversity, we invent and create our dishes. We put traditional Belgian products such as parsnip, purslane and chicory back on the menu.We also embrace the rich culture of Belgian beers. As a reward for our love of the combination of beer and delicious food, we had the honour to receive the Bier and Gastronomie award 2009, a national award for restaurants that combine different beers with good cuisine. Every time we review our menu, we put a lot of effort into finding the perfect combination for each dish.

“Great service, great concept - loved the beer choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We happened upon Lieve by chance, during our first visit to Amsterdam.

We were lucky to get a table, it was very popular. Our waitress was very helpful, explaining the different menu options. We went with the 'Belgian Baroque' option, which was a selection of dishes for each course. We also went for the beer menu to compliment our meal.

The service was excellent, as was the food. The real star for us, however was the different beer selections - they complimented the different dishes perfectly! All in all an excellent meal. Our only criticism was that all the dishes for each course (and the beer selection) were brought at once, so were in danger of getting cold (or warm).

Fairly expensive, so maybe one to save for a special occasion, but we thought it was definitely worth it, a nod thoroughly enjoyed!

“Cool spot...nice service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Had dinner here on a Friday evening with my fiance. We ordered the set menu but decided to go ala carte with drinks. Nice atmosphere and very friendly service.

The food: I thought that the food was decent, but in some cases a bit cold or too sweet. Many of the dishes contained some type of fruit sauce or sweeter cheese. While this is not a bad thing, we probably would have chosen differently had it been more evident on the menu.

Drinks: nice Belgian beer selection and some nice wines as well.

Overall, a nice hip spot with a lively full crowd but attentive service. People of all ages were dining here which was nice to see.

“Wonderful multi-course meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Please realize that there is no rush at this restaurant which is wonderful if you're not in a hurry to go anywhere. If you're in a hurry, eat elsewhere. They have a couple of multi-course meal options which makes ordering a little easier and focuses on sharing. We liked it because we got to try multiple appetizers, entrees and desserts. Reservations are recommended because it is popular and the tables are occupied for hours. Friendly, attentive service. Wonderful for couples or small groups. Prices were reasonable for what you get.

“Serendipity meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Have been going to Amstaerdam at least once a year for the last eight years or so. We stumbled across this restaurant completely by chance, and it is the best meal I have ever had in the city. We were lucky to get a table even though it was a Monday night, the place is fairly large but without a reservation they were about to turn us away when one became free (so book in advance!). Great ambience, superb service, amazing (and unusual) food. Highly recommended....
