The Leliegracht is one of the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam. Just next to one of my favorite pizza places in Amsterdam Da Portare Via and around the corner from The Times Hotel lies Restaurant De Luwte. A recently renovated restaurant with a beautiful terrace and a very friendly and caring service!
As your eyes glance over the menu you see delicious starters made with steak tartare and a poached egg, scallops with chorizo, cauliflower creme and Dutch mussels or a sashimi of gravad lax with blini’s and wasabi mayonnaise. For a main you can go for a Black Angus Beef Tomahawk Steak (yes, in capital) with your partner-in-food-crime, a 5 weeks dry aged sirloin steak, glazed duck breast or some really great fish like cod or the fish of the day.
And how about dessert? This restaurant got you some great choices: A lemon cheesecake with melon sorbet ice cream and a crumble of Dutch cake, a chocolate soufflé with walnut ice cream and a passionfruit sauce. Enjoy the dessert pairing with a dessert wine or order the cheese platter.
The Other Menu
And that’s not all: Restaurant De Luwte has an amazing cocktail menu as well. So care for something heavier to drink after dinner. Check out their cocktails! It’s also nearby this spot (for after dinner drinks) >
It was a wonderful evening and I enjoyed the entourage and the dinner very much. Just one friendly note (funny actually): you need to do something about those enormous industrial lights above the tables, we hit our heads about three times! And we were not the first :P
