Description: Vinkeles is housed in an old bakery; which was set up in 1787 by the Regents of the Catholic Church, who at the time owned the building. The bakery flourished until 1811 and guests still can see the original ovens, which were discovered intact during restoration work.Echoing the décor of the hotel, Executive Chef Dennis Kuipers’ menu combines the traditional and the modern. The dishes served in Vinkeles show Kuipers’ love of the contemporary French cuisine. He combines the freshest ingredients to produce a menu that is delicious and unique to Vinkeles. In 2009 restaurant Vinkeles was awarded a Michelin star.

Incredible culinary experience, with many pleasent surprises (for example the amuse bouches). I was really satisfied and I'll be back when in Amsterdam again.

Fabulous food, excellent wine and a cheese selection to die for. The staff were very knowledgeable and attentive. Only fault no disabled access but then the restaurant is in an old historic building.

One of the best meals my wife and I have ever had. Attentive staff without hovering. Every morsel was an explosion of flavors. Well worth the cost. A great way to conclude our trip to Amsterdam.

A high quality food with a high quality service combine to one of the best restaurant. We had dinner in our last evening at the Dylan hotel, the room is so nice with flowers and candles, good wines and warm atmosphere. An evening to remember!

I had dinner here while on a recent trip to Amsterdam. We had the 4 course tasting menu with paired wines. The food was amazing and the wines outstanding. Really delicious and lovely, helpful staff. Especially the Sommelier, I'll never forget that red wine!! If I'm back in Amsterdam, I'll be eating here again!

We were there to celebrate my wife's anniversary. We were both satisfied. The location has style, the staff is very well trained, and the spacious table lay-out breaks with the usual (refectory type) arrangement of many downtown resto's. We went for the menu with so called 'adapted' wines. The food was between good and very good. The choice of wines... More

The food is so tasteful. The place is so beautiful. The staff is so helpful. The atmosphere is unforgettable. Next time we also would like to stay in the Dylan Hotel, in which the restaurant is located, but for now we can't do anything else than think back about our dining experience..

Some of the food served here is stunning, including some of the amuse bouches (of which we were served three). And most of it is very creative and original. Excellent and imaginative wine offerings. A wonderful setting in an old bakery, an intimate size and flawless service (from very handsome staff) complete the package. Expensive but much cheaper than the... More

Vinkeles is a very nice restaurant with good food and friendly staff. Restaurant manager Casper was of big help when I booked a table for two with quite short notice, and I'm happy that we spent our first evening in Amsterdam at Vinkeles.
