Overall disappointing, and not just because I was looking forward to dining in a Michelin star restaurant. Our food was average in quality and we had to ask three times to have our wine glasses refilled. It seemed that whomever we asked simply walked away to tell the wine steward, who never came. Perhaps they consider their pecking order more... More

I am very pleased to offer my review of Vermeer. I am on my eight Eurail adventure through Europe over the past four years--totaling 165 days or so. One would think that I would have visited more places than I have. But a Eurail pass gives you the freedom to go anywhere, and I have a tendency to return to... More

What a memorable night at Restaurant Vermeer’s Chef’s Table. Their food, wine and service are indeed a holy trinity! We had the tasting menu – certain in the knowledge that Chris (Chef) and Simon (Sommelier) would know better than us the perfect combinations of courses and wines. We weren’t disappointed. The food is beautifully presented (for the salmon course I... More

Picked this restaurant based on 'michelin' rating - we like to visit one whenever we make a 'european city' trip. It certainly did not disappoint - the food and service was immaculate, with a great ambiance and several hidden surprises in the tasting menu. An evening to remember for a long time!

The food is great. Get the fixed menu with the wine pairing. Simon, the sommelier, will make the meal an incredible experience for you.

WE had the seven course from the land menu. It started with 3 or 4 amuse bouche ; one had dry ice smoking all over the prep table. We choose a Dutch white wine to go with all the courses that was not as dry as I would have liked. Everything that comes out of the kitchen has fresh herbs... More

Visited Vermeer on the recommendation of a friend. We went for the 7 course from the land menu with wine matching. It was an amazing meal from start to finish, service was great and the sommelier was very informative and great fun. It was expensive but well worth it.

Amazing food, fabulous service - not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Had a gastronomic adventure here - from the dry ice in the appetisers to the popping candy in dessert. Excellent wines perfectly matched to each course. A real treat!

One of the best meals of all time. Ordered the four course option and received four amuse bouche items before the first course. Then there was the pre-dessert and the petit fours after dessert. Best wine pairings I have ever seen, including a German red with a sea bass third course. Definitely has earned the Michelin star.

For my birthday, we went to Vermeer, and were -again- not disappointed! From the wonderful amuses in the lounge over special cocktails, to the surprise chocolate cake for (extra) dessert: it was all magnificent. We were even invited to have a look at their newly created roof garden with all kinds of herbs (with great views). All dishes were excellent,... More
