I was looking for nice restaurant nearby the hotel that we're going to stay. Vermeer was one of the restaurant in NH Barbizon Palace hotel.

Vermeer has long been on my wishlist of restaurants to eat in. A one Michelin star restaurant, I had always thought that it might be a bit stiff or pretentious, but nothing could be further from the truth. My friend and I were welcomed in the restaurant lounge with an aperitif, which was accompanied by some lovely little appetisers. We... More

Living in Rotterdam, We seldom go to Amsterdam. Combining a visit with the Rijksmuseum we dedided to pay this Michelin one star restaurant a visit. Unbelievably, it was only half full. Unbelievable, because the food was more than excellent, with an even better service. The menu was easily changed to our wishes, with several very good vegeterian alternatives (leaving some... More

Vermeer is a one Michelin star restaurant in the Barbizon hotel across the street from Central Station in Amsterdam. The degustation menu is called “From the Land Collection” and consists of 7 courses for 99 euros. Matching wines are 59 euros. We didn’t feel like having veal sweatbread, and were offered the chef’s signature vegetable dish instead. It already becomes... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal December 2013. The dining experience was exceptional, food amazing and staff very knowledgeably. Pre dinner drinks were severed by an open log fire, followed by the 7 course with matching wines menu. Our Sommelier 'Wesley' described each wine to perfection and offered alternatives for those who had a different palette. As each course arrived different Chefs... More

In Amsterdam, if you would like a superb Michelin star dinner served by an extraordinary staff that manages to combine a respectful attitude with a quality of personal friendliness, you should not miss the Vermeer Restaurant. We started with aperitif before a cozy fire in the lounge, where we were served first one amuse bouche and then another. One was... More

The Vermeer is centrally located just across from Central Station, It is fitted out like a stylish house from the last century. Clearly they think they are great and most reviewers agree with them. I found the experience OK but not fantastic. Some things are incongruous - fancy restaurant with all the clients dressed to impress, but the maitre D... More

A group of us dined here and our experience was quite nice. We were offered either a four or seven course menu or a la carte. We chose the four course menu with the wine paring. I had venison which was exquisite! Service was wonderful and attentive. A very good evening out.

Had a business dinner at Vermeer near the end of a Europe trip - the service was excellent and very interesting, the food innovative but more than ample and very tasty, and the wines excellent (wonderful that they had a stunning Grosset Riesling for about 50 euros). There are certainly other restaurants around the world that bring the whole experience... More
