The dishes were amazingly decorated , and the taste was great as well . nice atmosphere and good wines . I think lobster lovers should give a shot .

Overall, I found the food quite good and the environment was ok however i wouldn't say that it was good value for money. It's a good place to have dinner with family though.

Hi. The main problem was the service being extremely slow. It took us a full two hours to get our food despite us telling the waiter several times that the food was taking too long. Secondly, the steak was chewy and did not have much flavor.

Last night was the second time I had dinner at Looks. You should definitely go and order the yummy surf and turf! At the moment they serve white asparagus, also worth trying!! The food was very good, but the staff even better! They are super friendly, hard working and made me feel comfortable. O, and do not leave without drinking... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
