Waited an hour and fifteen minutes for my lamb main course to arrive. My wife and I were not impressed as we watched the couple beside us, who arrived after us, finish their meal and dessert while we still waited. Made reservations at 8:30pm and were seated promptly. Did not receive our main course until 10pm. Not a good start... More

Jetlagged, exhausted, we followed the recommendation of our hotel owner and found our ideal dinner spot in Amsterdam! Why try anywhere else? We just reserved for our entire stay. The weather was extremely hot and they were allowed by the city to set out more outdoor tables than usual, so we had the pleasure of being a little away from... More

We found de Luwte while walking down Leliegracht and were intrigued by the posted menu and the pleasant look of the restaurant.When we saw the Trip Advisor sticker we decided to make reservations a few evenings later. The location is quite convenient and the decor is pleasant. However, the fireplace burning on a warm evening made it quite hot inside.... More

Very friendly service with a smile and joke , lovely setting and comfortable . Restricted menu but the choice we made was well served and very tasty. Only down side was that we were one of the last couples served at night and felt a little rushed to leave as cleaning up all around us . Would defiantly return and... More

I have been an admirer of De Luwte for years now and it gets better each time - contemporary cuisine, excellent wine list, comfortable atmosphere and reasonable prices. We have always enjoyed the warm atmosphere inside, but on a warm evening the ambience outside is just about Amsterdam perfect.

Candle lit. Boats going past on the canal. Lovely service they can do any dietary requirement and love to do it. Had the Dutch tenderloin steak with ratatouille and... More

We didn't have any specific dinner plans upon arriving in Amsterdam, so we just wandered around the canals looking at various menus. We found De Luwte and were really drawn to the French-influenced menu. The restaurant is absolutely adorable and the service is quite friendly and prompt. We ordered drinks to begin our meal. I had the porn star martini... More

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.
