About
Restaurant 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 and Jurgen van der Zalm's menu combine traditional and contemporary. The dishes served in Vinkeles show Kuipers’ love of the contemporary French cuisine. He and his team combine the freshest ingredients to produce a menu that is delicious and unique to Vinkeles. Restaurant Vinkeles has been awarded a Michelin Star since 2009.

Clean and neat comfortable atmosphere makes eating very enjoyable, especially accompanied by lively classical music. Vinkeles Restaurant seems to be a "Private Dining Place" because visitors are very at home there. Are you interested too? Order now!

The food was good, the Vinkeles menu definitely has some nice dishes although the chef is probably better with fish than meat. The real deception was for the wine pairing: it was terribly poor. I was chocked that this restaurant can offer such a low...More

If you have booked then you should be ok. Weekends as ever get booked up in advance but I have eaten there three times with no issues on reservations.

In general there is no tiping in Amsterdam because there is usually a service charge. However, if one really likes the service, which is amazing at Vinkeles, one can chose to tip.
