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

This was a return visit for my friends and I (having previously visited Vermeer about 5 years ago). The food is excellent and in particular the 7 course tasting menu is highly recommended. The staff clearly have an enthusiasm for their food and introduce each course (and the excellent choice of accompanying wine) with what I can only describe as... More

From the moment we walked into Vermeer all of my seances were heightened. The young lady that welcomed us to our table was delightful. When the menu was placed in front of us we were more than excited to begin our food journey. Innovative, creative and delicious is the way I would describe our meal. The service was friendly and...

It is not just about the food, although that is certainly the main event and our experience of the food at Restaurant Vermeer was fantastic; there are a lot of superlatives I could use. The service was attentive without being intrusive, the ambience trés chic, yet comfortable. As the ‘amuse bouche’were slowly presented – some clever things with raw rhubarb... More
