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.

This place saved the day!

We walked around aimlessly trying to find a place to eat. We were about to give up and stumbled upon this little treasure. We ate at the bar, splitting an entree and then each enjoying our own dessert. Great cocktails - Bobby's, a local gin. And two glasses of dessert wine. The waiter was the... read more

Set in a nice and quiet canal-side location, de Luwte offers excellent food. We had a cod and a beetroot-glazed salmon, and both were cooked to perfection, and presented in a rather stylish manner. The food is not exactly cheap but the price matches the quality. We hope to return soon.

Took is as substitute for planned place, which was packed. Had delicious starter, the tuna tartar and the catch of the day - white fish, couscous and champagne souse. Chef made food as surprise, fresh and very tasty. Nice chat with bartender over some gases of white Sauvignon blanc. Pleasant atmosphere with fresh flower decoration. Very pleasant dinner, looking forward... More

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.
