“Great meal good wine and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

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 from the rooftop garden....very creative and added to the tastes on the plate.

There were probably 3 or 4 pre desserts + the main dessert. it all was excellent.

As usual, we had many questions for our servers and they answered them all. At the end of the meal we met Chef Christopher Naylor and thanked him for a great meal.

“Most amazing meal!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

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.

“Sublime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

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!

“Absolutely stellar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

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.

“Expect the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

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, the wines splendid. The staff is nice and attentive, the chef enthusiastic and friendly.

You could not ask for a more special (birthday) dinner experience. Highly recommended.
