This seemingly simple restaurant provided one of the highlights of a long and busy global trip. I certainly didn't expect the quality of of food presentation, the subtle flavour combinations and just beautifully cooked fish that arrived. Living in Melbourne, we are spoiled by great...More

Deservedly busy, the food is first class, the service is efficient and friendly. Great steaks. I'd certainly eat here again (unlike the place a block away which scores more highly here).

Loved everything about this place. Our service was incredible and we were made to feel like one of the family. We sat right at the front window so was an amazing table. The manager gave us her personal attention which made it even more special....More

Amazing restaurant. Scallops appetizer was amazing, the wine recommendation was great, the catch of the day was so fresh, and the Gin Mare drink was crazy good. All the flavors were great without being too overbearing or rich. Service was top notch. They took pity...More

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.
