Happiness in good home cooking.

This is a restaurant I like very much. It is small but cosy. The wine selection is good, if not excellent. Bistro-like atmosphere. Veteran chef Evert is turning out, with the help of his staff, one good dish after another. What can be better on Texel than a plate full of cockles in white wine? Or... read more

We had a lovely time in this place. Staff was super friendly, the meals were delicious, well presented and well served. I loved the home-y feel of the place, the non pretentious plates and delicious flavours. Oh, and good wine selection!

Last minute booking, bit of a long shot, turned out to be one of our best meals of the year. Excellent ingredients, well prepared and presented with care. Very good value. Limited choice on the menu but what they do they do very well - a very good approach. Both the local lamb and the cod were outstanding. The young... More

I went there together with my girlfriend on Friday evening during our weekend holiday in Texel. We loved De Luwte! It's a charming restaurant with very good food but more personal and relaxed style than Michelin fine dining restaurants - exactly what we like the most! We went to other well chosen restaurants on the island too and would like... More

My boyfriend and I chose to eat here based on other trip advisor reviews. The menu isn't extensive but the food is well cooked and reflects seasonal variations. The service was slow at times, but there was free flowing tap water bought to the table throughout the evening. I would recommend the cheese platter for dessert - a good selection... More

Nice place and very friendly people. We arrived very hot and were greeted with a pitcher of water and a friendly smile. This is unusual in Holland (well not the smile, but most restaurants only offer bottle water and certainly won't give tap water unless you specifically ask for it). It seemed like the people who run this restaurant are... More

We visited this restaurant after reading the advices on tripadvisor. This place was cosy, special with open kitchen. The food was tasty, the atmosphere was nice. The drinks were biological ... The kids didn't like that!
