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.

While visiting Amsterdam, I had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Dylan Hotel for two nights, and therefore dining twice in Vinkeles too! Both dinners were exceptional, and the service beyond compare!

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.

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!
