Looks was very accommodating to our large business group. The atmosphere inside made it even more enjoyable. The menu was a bit small but the quality of the food was very good. Our wait staff did an exceptional job.

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

MENU Looks has a small menu that changes every 6 weeks. Oysters, Entrecote and Lobster are always available. The changing menu is always surprising and refreshing. We cook with all seasons and preparing the classic ingredients with a personal twist. We want you as our guest to have a pleasant experience at Looks Dining. LOCATION Amsterdam's Chinatown has a long history when it comes to food. Looks situated in the center, a forest of canals, bridges and 16th century buildings. The wide range of old asian restaurants, Looks stands out immediately. The first impression of the two ancient monumental buildings. But if you open the door you enter a warm, modern, international, urban occasion. At the entrance the kitchen, staff greets you kindly. With an open kitchen, guests can immediately see that we work with fresh products The building consists of many different levels connected by stairs. The rooms have their own character and look. Through a lot of levels and the use of illuminated glass creates a unit.
