Lotti’s at The Hoxton, Herengracht in Amsterdam

Lotto's at The Hoxton in Amsterdam was a vibrant and lovely spot for drinks, breakfast and dinner.

After checking in to The Hoxton, Herengracht in Amsterdam and relaxing a bit in my room, I soon decided it was time to saunter down and spend a bit of time in the lobby bar and restaurant – Lotti’s.


As a welcome cocktail to Amsterdam, I found a seat at the gorgeous lobby and began to relax. Soon, my waitress arrived and I ordered the FROM POMELO TO PALOMA (Patron Reposadeo rosemary infused, ginger and red while water, grapefruit sherbet, lime, grapefruit and pink pepper soda).

It actually was refreshing and peppery – and exactly what I wanted to enjoy as I sat and overlooked the canals.


I had two breakfasts at Lotti’s during the course of my stay. The first day, I ordered the OVERNIGHT STEEL CUT OATS (dried mango, coconut, pecan nuts, the FRUIT BOWL (fresh seasonal fruit), SMOKED STREAKY BACON a HONEY LAVENDAR LATTE and ORANGE JUICE.

The second morning, I ordered the LOTTI’S BENNY (brioche, free range ham, poached eggs, hollandaise). Mainly, because I wanted something warmish, I thought. Also, I wanted to try something different than the previous morning’s dish. I also ordered the SMOKED STREAKY BACON, a glass of ORANGE JUICE and a CAPPUCCINO.

Overall, breakfast at Lotti’s was truly mid. I didn’t particularly like my LOTTI’S BENNY. But, It could be because I felt that the amount of sauce was overwhelming. As such, I pushed it to the side and mainly focused on the ham and brioche. Frankly, I bootlegged the dish into a lackluster French toast by asking for some maple syrup – and it was better for it.


For dinner, I browsed the menu for anything that specifically caught my eye. What stood out was the GAUFRITES WITH CURRY SAUCE (potato waffles topped with a house made currywurst sauce) and a glass of the orange varietal of Raimones Engrescada’s XARELLO – a combination of Marina and Muscat grapes from Catalunya, Spain.

I asked my server if she knew if the gaufrites were English crispy chips or Dutch fries. She’d just started working recently and didn’t know. She assumed they were somewhere in the middle. However, when they arrived, I was amused – they were most definitely crispy chips.

I enjoyed that the flavors were unique. The chips were dusted with parmesan and parsley. The currywurst sauce was unique. Would I order that particular dish again? Doubt it. It’s chips and dip.

The SKIRT STEAK (picked peppers, red chimichurri, rocket) was good. But, honestly not as outstanding as at Mari Hari the night before. I loved the fresh arugula (rocket), the peppers and the red chimichurri. Again, it was good and a solid meal. I would order it again.
