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.

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.
