Words to describe de Luwte? Cozy, warm, inviting, delicious, unpretentious, relaxed. Dining here last night was like visiting with old friends who happen to be excellent chefs. The service was both attentive and unhurried. The food was excellent- those scallops! Excellent wine choices. It was...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.
