I loved this restaurant--the cozy interior, the warm wait staff, and most importantly the delicious, well prepared food, all made for a satisfying dining experience. The service was a bit on the slow side though, so be prepared for that.

de Luwte is a small, casual treasure on one of Amsterdam's many small side canals. Due to its small size a reservation, which can be made online is a good idea. Menu is small, but well thought out. Food is very god, fresh and well...More

If only the service was better, then this could be a fantastic restaurant. The chef is clearly very talented, and ambitious. We were impressed by the food, which comes reasonably priced too. But the waitresses were a real pain. They seemed more interested in chatting...More

This restaurant is in a side road, not far from the touristy area of Amsterdam. The restaurant from the outside is absolutely beautiful and quaint. The inside is exactly the same. The service is good, but could be a bit friendlier. The menu is very...More

There are many, many places to eat in Amsterdam, some really bad where many tourists eat, and some where real friends go for creative menus and food presentation, and hopefully great service. Fortunately for me I was taken to de Luwte for my "last night...More

Dear owner, I would like to celebrate my birthday next year in your restaurant. It is enough places for 16 people? What the average price of your recommended menu per person? Best regards - Ruta

As above, the restaurant is not very big and they would probably be able to accommodate you in one part by rearranging the tables

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.
