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 were looking for a late dinner and were encouraged from what we observed to enter this busy and friendly-looking restaurant. Service was knowledgeable and attentive, and the wine list intelligent. Prices were reasonable. We were very happy with our steak and large salad. Upscale and good quality without being cutesy or snooty.

Another restaurant that we found close to our hotel. we plumped for the lamb shanks as a main plus my other half had Scallops and I the lentil soup .All were very tasty with good size portions and oodles of taste. A reasonable charge for such a city centre venue. And the waiting staff were very pleasant and helpful.

We found this restaurant listed in Rick Steves' book, but I always like to double check so we discussed this with our concierge. He also recommended it. We went there this evening and it was amazing. Surf and Turf was pork belly and prawns. The steak came on a plank with a tureen of sauteed vegetables with Indian spices and... More

Last night in Amsterdam and visited this nice looking restaurant which is just round the corner from the beautiful hotel the Toren. The restaurant looks great on the outside and also great inside but don't be fooled. This was a very disappointing meal. The kir royale cocktails arrived as just cava before being sent back. The starters were ok. We... More

The food was exceptional here. Very well presented and delicious, we enjoyed the cocktails too. The only thing that let it down a bit was the service. We felt a bit ignored, they didn't check in for drinks or to see if we were enjoying our meal. They forgot our bread rolls and didn't ask us if we'd like any... More

Helpful staff, we (6) arrive on Saturday night without any reservation. Nice design and warm atmosphere. The dinning room is a little bit noisy. The wine are proposed at a reasonable price, we order a French rose: Bosquet. It's was clearly making the deal for only 22€. A good fit anyway for the catch of the day: sea bass. The... More
