The Vermeer Restaurant (Prins Hendrikkade 59) looks very, very pretty: candles, long white tablecloths, thick dark ceiling beams, framed pictures, chandeliers... because, although it's a part of the Barbizon Palace bought by the Spanish NH Hotels and not particularly 'vermeerish', the name 'Vermeer' conjures beauty. In small doses: the restaurant is very small (what tries to mean 'exclusive') and it... More

Restaurant Vermeer undoubtedly deserves its star - the cooking is outstanding. The price is on the high side - but that is true of Amsterdam generally, where the mark ups on the wine are often stratospheric - but it is in this case not unjustified. The atmosphere is reasonably formal without being oppressive, and the staff certainly are skilled imn... More

Superb food, excellent atmosphere, attentive service, thoroughly enjoyable. Surprisingly large portions, especially after all the delicious little treats from the chef. Really enjoyed that the main course was brought out by the chef and 'explained' to you, nice touch. One very, very minor fault was when our fizzy water was given to the table next to us - probably irritated... More

This restaurant based in the NH Barbizon Palace Hotel near Central Sq is absolutely fabulous. The food is perfectly cooked and presented and the wine chosen expertly to compliment it. The restaurant is expensive but it has a quality to match, with extremely good service and friendly, attentive staff. If you want to spoil yourself with some great food and... More

We just arrived in Amsterdam after a three hour high speed train ride from Paris. We checked into our hotel, the NH Barbizon Palace, and found ourselves too tired to head out to find a quick bite. Our meal at the hotel Restaurant Vermeer took over two hours so I defeated the purpose of a quick meal followed by a... More

We opened the entrance foor and the staff were immediately attentive. This continued throughout the dinner without being intrusive. Yet the waiters were engaging when we asked questions. The sommelier was particularly responsive. One of my usual subtle trick is to get up, roll up the napkin and leave it on the table see the response. I returned a few... More

Just returned from Amsterdam where we had a business dinner for 5 at Vermeer. The restaurant is in a older building very close to the central station. There is one large window with a view of the station, but unless you are at the front table, you will only have an interior view. The options for dinner are either a... More

This restaurant delivers at least two star cuisine, and compares more than favourably to the three star establishments I've enjoyed. Nothing could be faulted, and every course brought both surprise and delight. If you're looking for a memorable experience, and you're happy to pay for it, this is it. Do the full seven courses, with the wine accompaniment, and you'll... More

We had the 7 courses menu. As someone said, by the time you add everything else in, it gets to 14. The amuse bouches were great, the rhubarb macerated with sugar and pepper is probably the perfect appetiser. The langoustine and fennel dish with wild garlic is probably one of the nicest things I have ever eaten, and not a... More
