I jointed colleagues for a meal at the restaurant on a busy Thursday night. Food: I had the Vinkeles tasting menu rather than the Chef’s menu. A fabulous 5 course mean ensued that left me satisfied and my taste buds delighted! Service: excellent multilingual staff...More

One of the most sophisticated and edgy M Star in Amsterdam, the menu, service and wine selection, makes a unique atmosphere that elevates any palate and taste.

The chef here is truly talented. All the tasting morsels were exquisite, both in taste and presentation. Great experience. The staff is terrific and very enthusiastic about their food. Very worth it.

Dear Legend187, Thank you for your comment. I am glad that you have enjoyed the burger. The fact that you haven't found a tasting menu is because you didn't dine in restaurant Vinkeles but in our brasserie Occo. Hopefully may we welcome you another time...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.

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.
