2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Thoroughly ordinary menu with particularly annoying service. I don't understand why it is so difficult to get decent food in the Netherlands. I left vowing never to return as did my host, who lives in Amsterdam.

On our last day at Amsterdam, my friend and I went here for dinner. It was located in the same building as a hotel, so I was a bit lost when walking in, but the staff were very friendly and welcomed us in. The maître was very professional and attentive. We ordered the 5-course tasting menu. From the amuse bouches... More

Celebrating daughters last evening in Amsterdam for a while, 4 of us went to Vinkeles - we were not disappointed. Set in an charming, old canal house, the setting was stunning. Service was perfect, and the food was great! Two of us had the Alliance 5 course menu and two just ordered ala carte - everything was prepared and presented... More

From all te restaurants I reviewed for Tripadvisor, Vinkeles is probably the best. It offers a unique (and very well balanced) combination of atmosphere, service and food. With the head-waiter being extremely guest focussed and the sommelier recommended beautiful wines (and cognac), te whole evening went smooth. I had the Garden Snails as a starter and 'Zonnevis' as a main... More

Loved the Food. Service Was not the fastest... the menu can arise your interest... even more once the dish is on your table... Lovely dining experience... Keep it going.. Do have time to spare, loads to chat with your partner and soak in the flavor and aroma at the Restaurant.

We booked the table in the kitchen where you could see the chefs prepare the food. A great experience! The food was sensational and the service was great. Was a little pricey but would come back again.
