Among the best steaks in the city! Very popular among Amsterdamers. The meat is excellent, while the side plates, salads etc are mediocre. Unfortunately the bread served is what in the Netherlands is considered normal but the rest of the world uses it only for tostis; in other words, just unacceptable to be considered as bread.

Our hotel was not far from here so on our first night we dropped in here for dinner. It was so good we never went anywhere else. They are renowed for their steaks and you can tell why. We all had steak with a portion of chips between two as well as a portion of creamed mushrooms. Everything was beautifully... More

This is most definitely the place where I had the best piece of meat in my while life!!! And the most crazy was that for a restaurant specialist on meat all the rest on the table was amazingly delicious too!!The greatest of course is the gravy, then the potato salad, my boyfriend had delicious fries with mayo. Everything was way... More

If you want to guarantee a mediocre satisfaction of having a steak the place is appropriate. But nothing "wooow"... Service was ok also.

Actually there is just one dish you should order at Loetje: steak (for me a medium plus, somewhere in between medium and well done, but very tender!), French fries and a salad. Staff is friendly and attentive in all of their restaurants!

Nice atmosphere, quick and responsive waiters, good food. Try the spicy beef - top quality Angus beef with a semi spicey sauce you will not forget.

We came late in the evening, right before the kitchen was closing. Still we got a fantastic beef-dinner, served by decent and nice waiters. They did not rush our meal, and we were able to sit there for a few hours and finish our bottle of wine. We had ice cream for dessert, and it was amazing 😍

Loetje has become a 'classic' in Amsterdam. There is always one near, Centrum, Zuid, or Oost. And also outside town. I love their calfs-liver, always good. The service is swift, almost too swift, on the edge of pushy (which I absolutely don't like if your conversation is interfered many, many times). Another characteristic of this particular place is the noise-level.... More
