Description: 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.

A quiet restaurant on one of the many canals. My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was wonderful. The plates were delicately prepared. The service was excellent. Overall a pleasant dining experience but a bit pricey - about 42 euros per head including a bottle of wine - but well worth it. The only negative was that they did not provide tap water. We had to buy bottled water!

Whilst the menu is somewhat limited (half a dozen starters, mains and desserts) all but one dish was very good, the highlight being the smoked duck breast with hosin and salad. I can also recommend the roquefort and spinich strudel, as well as the lamb skewers. The only slight disappointment being the ravioli which my wifey went for, which whilst not terrible was just ok.

Even though we arrived quite late in the evening, we never felt rushed and the service was excellent. De Luwte is in a pleasant location, and very reasonably priced (2 x starters, 2 x mains, 1 shared dessert and 2 glasses of wine - 75 euros)

Good location on a quiet canal
plenty of outdoor seating
pleasant, open, happy staff, a little stretched maybe but no long wait. The waiter was a little too 'relaxed' I think.
Not an extensive menu (fish speciality) or wine list, but good value. The chef knows his business.
I wouldn't travel far to eat here for a special occasion, but it's a solid unpretentious inexpensive place and you can do a lot worse in Amsterdam.
