Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked for a Friday night and it was very busy. Service was a little slow, but the bitterballen and steak were every bit as good as I remembered from 2018. Catered well for a nut allergy and made me feel comfortable that my food...was safe to eat.More

I ordered tuna steak. It was completely baked and topped with brown beer. How do you come up with this? Tuna shouldn't be fried. It's not meat! Then there was Advocao. baked advocado.. Please! A very lousy experience.

Used to like Loetje restaurants but the last couple times at different locations the quality and service really went down. First of all if starts to be a cantine , very crowded and almost only families with children . The special menu “ roode waard”...is really low quality you used to get a good steak wilt chicken liver but know it is more chicken and the steak tasted the same as I think it was less then a 100 grams. then the entire plate covered with onions . ( half raw). this isn’t the great disk anymore as in the past. on top of that something you hear from many people “ the food is to salty “. the idea is that it is to stimulate more drinking !!… also the service isn’t that good anymore probably they are to busy, no time for the customer . and if you give low or no tip directly the face chance and not even saying having a good evening. so in a period of 6 months I went to three different locations and all is the same ,sometimes the waitress is real nice and you see they work for their tip . but the food remains average . so i give up , for almost 40€ for chicken and liver i can go cheaper . I think they don’t want to do so much their best anymore it is crowded anyway , but there is always a turning point .. and once people start staying away. it goes fast…More

I use to come here for the great steaks. Prepared in several ways, served with bread to dip in the buttery sauces. Today I chose the steak with chicken liver, onions and bacon. It was too much but so tasty and flavored.

We did not have reservations but waited for a table since it was very busy. During the wait we ordered wine and snacks which made it very pleasant and the half hour waiting passed very quickly. After that the friendly staff brought us tobour table....The food was great and the staff was very friendly and helpfull. Also with glutenfree options. I will visit againMore

The food was just horrible. Salty, fat and without soul. Lots was prefabricated, bacon, chicken, chips. Really if you ask 5,5 euros for a serve of chips they need to be hand-cut and triple cooked not frozen chips. If you ask 13 euros for a...club sandwich your chicken should be home marinated and your bacon freshly baked. Anyway I'm happy we didn't go there for tea since their prices are very steep and if you don't put any effort in your lunch dishes why would it be different for dinner.More

I’m a huge Loetje fan and I’ve been eating the steak here for many years and can vouch for it being one of the best in the world. Few steaks in Florence and some Argentine restaurants in London compare to it. Go for the standard...steak. First one on the list. You won’t be disappointed. If in the mood for a bit of an Indonesian twist, take the second sambal option. But stay within these 2. The other options try too hard and spoil the taste. Also, don’t go here if you’re not having the steak. Tried the fish and chicken here. They’re not bad, but far from the best dishes you may have had elsewhere. Lastly, the wine. Avoid the house option. Not the best quality. Pick something classy off the menu.More

What a disappointment. The food presentation and quality was very low and the price high. Being in an expensive location puts prices up. But you expect good quality. I was with 2 friends and we all had the signature steak and it was served in...a pile on the plate with lots of onion and liver and a thick black sauce. It looked horrible. My friends said that their steak tasted ok but mine was not fresh meat. In addition the bread was taken directly from a pack of white processed bread and just put on the table as a pile of slices. Sadly my experience of Loetje has gone down further. I have been to the Bergen Loetje twice and it has been very average. But this has been another level of bad. Sometimes you give a restaurant a few chances. But in the end I won’t go back to Loetje. Being cool and trendy is nothing without attention to quality and sadly this restaurant has forgotten that they are running a food business!More

The restaurant was quite busy for a tuesday evening, I did not expect that. But fortunately we still got a table for four. I had the shrimps as a starter, they where really nice, and then off course I took a steak for the maincourse....What I did not really get is that side dishes are not included, and the steak, well was not that special. And the Dame Blanche, well I have had better onces.More
