Restaurant De Luwte has been a well-known establishment located at the Leliegracht in Amsterdam for over 27 years. This winter, it has renewed the look.As soon as you walk in you feel the warmth. Warmth coming from the cosy fireplace, but also the natural colors and materials surrounding you. You find yourself amongst the locals and internationals. Enjoy a nice glass of red wine by the fireplace, a special diner with a view over the Leliegracht or taste different cocktails below our vertical garden.The name 'De Luwte' means 'out of the wind' or a 'sheltered place'. De Luwte is a calm, relaxing spot in the centre of Amsterdam where you can escape the bustle of the city into a cosy and relaxing place.We have an international menu with a nod to the Mediterrenaen kitchen. To everyone's wish our menu is an affordable, obtainable and interesting answer.

We dined at this restaurant on a Thursday night. Although we had booked we would have been able to get a table had we just turned up. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. I had a starter of scallops, mussels and chorizo which was delicious followed by the catch of the day. The presentation of all the courses was exceptional... More

My partner's birthday whilst were away felt like it deserved a real dining experience, and that is exactly what we had at de Luwte. The location is stunningly warm and cosy and the service is friendly and, most importantly, caring about you having a good night. The food was devine; superbly cooked and beautifully presented. I was astounded at the... More

thank goodness for De Luwte! we visited Amsterdam for New Years Even and enjoyed a fantastic dinner here before going out on the town. I made reservations (necessary on New Year's Eve) for three of us - one of whom is a very picky foodie-type. De Luwte more than delivered. The cocktails were unique and delicious. Even though it was... More

My Wife and myself went there more by chance because the restaurant we targeted first was closed. And we did not regret it! The place is very cozy and has a very warm interior. The Restaurant was not too busy and we ordered two starters and two main courses. As a starter we had a green asparagus-pies soup and scallops.... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this little corner of culinary delight last night. We'd passed by all the snug little pubs and sleek restaurants and were drawn to a candlelit menu open on an old wooden pillar outside what can only be described in winter as a warm and welcoming tres chic interior. Too few people have discovered the... More
