Faultless

I had dinner here with two friends and it was all incredibly delicious, extremely chic without being stuffy with faultless service. Wonderful sommelier too. It deserves at least two Michelin stars!

Pretty sure this is the best dinner we have ever had. Best service too. Location excellent - charming. A group of businessmen at a nearby table speaking English was the only distraction. If it had been Dutch, we wouldn't have had to listen in. Expensive but not stuffy. Every place else felt inferior - so save it for last.

My wife and I had a 5 course meal and different wines to go with it. Everything from start to finish was at a very high level. That includes the location, the food, the wine and the staff. The price was ok too compared to other Michelin restaurants.

The restaurant is located at the Dylan Hotel and is an area of Amsterdam that while nice is a bit more residential (as opposed to touristy). It is a moderate walk from most identifiable locations. We had a 5 course tasting with wine pairing. The food was absolutely superb and each dish was as good as we've had anywhere in... More

If you think "I have seen one Michelin star restaurant thus I've seen them all" you are seriously mistaken. Vinkeles is a experience on itself. The warm atmosphere of the restaurant and the warm welcome of the staff makes you feel at home. The beautiful small tasty Hors d' oevres are fantastic, the taste is unbelievable.

This was one hell of an experience. If you want the Michelin Star experience then this is the place. Make sure you know in advance that this in not an ordinary dining experience. I won't go into too much detail as it cannot explain the chef, staff and service. Worth every zillion dollars spent there. Something different.
