A great dining spectacle.

A most congenial Cheshire chef in the heart of Amsterdam who is pushing the boundaries of giving his diners a great culinary experience, a delight from start to finish never knowing what happens next a truly interesting dining experience.

We had the 7 course tasting menu but it came with 4 additional amuse bouches and a pre dessert so you actually got 12 courses. We also had the wine pairing. The halibut, fresh morels and veal were the highlights for us. Sometimes we find that Michelin star restaurants have too many rich dishes. Vermeer had the balance about right... More

My brother and I decided on Vermeer due to its proximity to Centraal Station. We were not disappointed. The staff was incredible and watching them create items at your table was reminiscent of watching a master paint. Perhaps that's why it's called Vermeer? Regardless, this won't be the cheapest meal you have, but you will be treated as a friend... More

Vermeer was wonderful. As other reviewers have noted, the food is very inventive, the amuse-bouche plentiful and the wine pairing carefully considered. We had the set menu and opted for four courses (vs seven) - this was more than adequate. The waiters were fast, informative and discreet. Delightful.

My husband and I had dinner here on Thursday evening. We were shown to the kitchen, to the chefs’ table, where champagne was served along with our amuses. It was lovely to see ‘behind the scenes’ in the kitchen and how a Michelin starred restaurant works and to meet and speak with Rudolf the chef. We were then shown to... More

One, two, three amuse bouches, then the fourth one being impressively concocted in front of us, with liquid nitrogen. And then, when we were escorted to our table a fifth one. All before we actually started on the menu. We chose the four courses meal with accompanying wines. Every dish was a discovery and the service impeccable, yet warm and... More

If you are in Amsterdam you can not miss this restaurant. They plan their own vegetable on the roof. Taste of the meals is excellent.
