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

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the

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.
