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.

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

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.

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.
