I knew this restaurant from my friends, she said loetje sells authentic netherlands food and because i am indonesian and netherland food is part of our culture so i want to know and taste it. The location is centrally located in front of amsterdam centraal. I ordered biefstuken , its a beef steak with butter as gravy ( yes, BUTTER as GRAVY but since i am on holiday i dont really care about fat :D). Turned out to be the best beef steak in the whole europe ( or in the whole universe ) i almost cry when i finished the whole plate but too full to order more. So i decided to take a long walk to birjenkof , doing some shopping and came back later in the afternoon to order more steak hahahahaha. I also ordered bitterbalen ( just because every restaurant in indonesia sell that and i want to know the difference, but honestly nothing special about it).
Never wrote a review this long but if i have a chance to go back to netherlands, i would definitely visit Loetje

This restaurant isn’t for everyone. If you’re vegetarian is place isn’t for you cause they do don’t have vegetarian food and the menu isn’t that big and the food ( I’ve eaten better.

Just 5 meters outside central station, you will find Loetje. In the old tourist information building, locaties in the basement. Views on the canals and the city center of Amsterdam. The food, drink and desserts are always great. Dont forget to ask for the white bread with the meat.

Loetje Restaurant is close to the main terminals for buses, trams and trains in Amsterdam. We met up with our friends here, who had just arrived off a cruise ship, (which docked nearby on the other side of the station).

The restaurant is easy to find just outside the station, between the two tram stops, next to the tram/bus office (where you can buy your tram and bus passes and tickets). It is situated below the tourist information office on the water front.

The vegetarian offerings are limited, with quite a few goats cheese dishes or humus offerings. However, we choose ordinary (Dutch) cheese toasted sandwiches with fries.  

You can eat inside, or (as we did), outside on the wide veranda, overlooking the water. Order your food at the table from the very pleasant waiting staff. They have tables for 2, 4, 6 or 8, so groups are not a problem.

The toilets are free to customers, but you need to get a ticket from the waiter for complimentary admission, (it’s 1€ if not).

This was a great place to meet up for an early lunch, before a walk around the city.
