We came to taste the Chef's Menu, which was outstanding! Good balanced food and wine pairings. Wouldn't miss it for the world. Service is correct, yet casual!

I know this is getting redundant but Vinkeles is truly a unique experience. We started off with a cocktail in the bar; we had an early reservation. As we were sitting talking and laughing a waiter stopped by to give us some information about the hotel. He wasn't our waiter, he was simply being helpful. I'm sure he recognized that... More

There isn't much to be said about this restaurant that hasn't already been said in a thousand other five-star reviews, but I felt it is necessary to add my concurrence to the masses here.

One of the few restaurants that truly merit 5 stars. The service was amazing. The food was exceptional. I have a shellfish allergy and they accommodated with a flawless foie gras dish. We enjoyed a drink in the lounge by the fire after dinner. Can not wait to go back.

Everything about this restaurant makes for a fabulous dining experience: exquisite modern French cuisine, gorgeous setting in and old bakery, impeccable service. I had the chance to dine there for a special occasion and we were blown away by the place, the staff and the food. Not to be missed if you are after a unique dining experience in Amsterdam.

The art on a plate was more delicious than it was visually appealing, and the visual appeal was incredible. Beautiful food, both for the eyes, and for the taste buds. I cannot conjure adequate words for the experience I had having the dinner course we were lucky enough to receive. The Service is unbeatable, the food is absolutely outstanding, and... More

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. My friend is a vegetarian with several food allergies and they created a special menu just for her. It was phenomenal. The service was outstanding. We stayed for hours and loved every minute. Go - Go - Go, already.
