Description: Vinkeles is housed in an old bakery; which was set up in 1787 by the Regents of the Catholic Church, who at the time owned the building. The bakery flourished until 1811 and guests still can see the original ovens, which were discovered intact during restoration work.Echoing the décor of the hotel, Executive Chef Dennis Kuipers’ menu combines the traditional and the modern. The dishes served in Vinkeles show Kuipers’ love of the contemporary French cuisine. He combines the freshest ingredients to produce a menu that is delicious and unique to Vinkeles. In 2009 restaurant Vinkeles was awarded a Michelin star.

“Faultless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2015

I had dinner here with two friends and it was all incredibly delicious, extremely chic without being stuffy with faultless service. Wonderful sommelier too. It deserves at least two Michelin stars!

“Save this dinner for last”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2015

Pretty sure this is the best dinner we have ever had. Best service too. Location excellent - charming. A group of businessmen at a nearby table speaking English was the only distraction. If it had been Dutch, we wouldn't have had to listen in. Expensive but not stuffy. Every place else felt inferior - so save it for last.

“Great meal in fantastic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2015

My wife and I had a 5 course meal and different wines to go with it. Everything from start to finish was at a very high level. That includes the location, the food, the wine and the staff. The price was ok too compared to other Michelin restaurants.
