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 tried the cocktail of the day. Very good. We had two very tasty starter: scallops and sweetbread. The clove sauce tastes... More

We went to dinner with my wife and we both loved the restaurant. It was located in Leliegracht, a nice Amsterdam Channel really near the city center. We had a very comfortable table by the window. We recommend the scallops and Dutch mussels (really tasty!) and the sirloin, that was just magnificent. I ordered it medium rare and it was... More

Reasonable restaurant in fashionable part of town, but spoiled by inattentive and careless service. Young staff seemed more interested in each other than their customers.

The atmosphere is great, the staff is friendly and professional and the food is very good and taste is surprising. The staff is willing to go the extra... More

Read about this restaurant on TA. Staff were helpful and pleasant and the restaurant had a nice friendly ambience. Our food was beautifully presented and was absolutely delicious. We were pleasantly surprised with our bill. All in all, an enjoyable dining experience and one which we would certainly recommend.

Came across an article in the Parool, which rated the steak at this restaurant very highly. Therefore I decided to check this place out. When arriving at the restaurant I was pleasantly surprised by waitress Lara, who was able to tell me the ins and outs of the menu. We had some great cocktails and a lovely scallop starter. The...

Our first night here comprised of a lot of cocktails crafted well by Terrence. His suggestions were spot-on. We then moved onto a range of appetisers, which we shared. It... More

This amazing place is just around the corner from where I used to work so I have eaten here before and had a great meal. Visited last night with a friend while I was out in Amsterdam and had one of the most wonderful steaks I have ever tasted! Went for the 850gr Tomohawk steak to share, (although I could... More
