painfully slow service (did not clear plates, at least 15 min for our bill after we asked for it, long wait for food). Beef tartar was very good. Scallop appetizer good. Fish was very good. Steak was very good.

My boyfriend and I were looking to for Dutch cuisine in a romantic setting, and found it at de Luwte! The food was amazing and the staff was so helpful and kind. Will definitely be coming back here next time we’re in Holland

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

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.
