If you like a very good steak with gravy then this is the place to be www.loetje.nl/en/

as a thumb rule, stay clear of the ‘Dutch style’ tourists trap places you find in the centre. They serve food that most Dutch people will only eat at home and that’s never served in a restaurant where the locals go. The quality is usually disputable too. Pancake places are the exception. If to try some real Dutch classic, go to Hema and try their famous rookworst (smoked sausage) which is truly a Dutch classic.

I had a wonderful meal at the Hotel School, a short tram ride from the city centre. (We were staying at an hotel about 4 minutes walk away.)

Kitchen & waiting staff were trainees, with discreet supervision.

Limited menu, but cooking & service were superb - I've had worse food at Michelin * places.

The cost was probably just the cost of the ingredients. If I lived in Amsterdam, I'd eat there as often as they'd let me !
