A disappointment for a Michelin one star. The food was good and tasty. The service, however, was not what I expect given the ranking. The sommelier seemed to want to steer us to something other than we selected, and later in the meal failed to...More

We've been to Vermeer a few times over the last years (basically every time we're in Amsterdam), and it's been consistently excellent. One of our favourite restaurants in the world.

From the time we arrived , everything was top class, the service, the knowledge of the food and wines, and best of all was the great dinner, the taste and presentation was superb.

This is a restaurant that lives up to its reputation. The dishes are subtle and complex. I don't think it is fair to call it "foofy". You should not go here if you are not expecting an expensive meal that will be simply wonderful -...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

Restaurant Vermeer just opposite Amsterdam’s Central Station in the Barbizon Palace Hotel is one of the finest restaurants in the city. The luxurious Old Dutch décor – marble tiled floors, monumental fireplaces, Delft tiles and plates, austere chandeliers – does suggest something of the master painter’s interiors. But it would take more than a servant-girl’s pearl earring wages to properly enjoy a meal at Vermeer. This is Michelin-starred, high-end, complex, refined European cuisine under the deft hand and watchful eye of Chris Naylor. The menu includes various irresistible multi-course and tasting options, and, while it changes with the season, offers dishes like starter of caviar and Colchester oysters served with veal tongue, truffle, red beet and seaweed chutney, main course of penne pasta with pheasant, walnuts, acorn bread and oloroso crème, and dessert of custard tart with figs, muscovado sugar and raisins. The wine list includes more than 300 labels, and you’ll want to avail yourself of the excellent sommelier’s opinions. Two private rooms can accommodate up to 20 or 30 respectively for memorable celebrations and events.
