We were fortunate to be in Amsterdam to enjoy Christmas. Prior to our trip, we found Restaurant Vermeer at the NH Barbizon Palace Hotel to be highly rated to celebrate our holiday dinner. The decor and atmosphere certainly reflected the European charm and class of the winter season. Whites...golds...reds...the restaurant, was small by American standards and after some observation, I... More

This Michelin-star restaurant is situated close to the central station and next to a hotel. We had a four course menu (90 Euro) with scallops, sole, deer and pear + a bottle of Dutch white wine (55 Euro). The food was excellent, but the price level of this restaurant is too high. Moreover the restaurant only had 16 guests this... More

Decided to spend a few days in Amsterdam and booked a couple of local Michelin starred restaurants whilst in the area. Foolishly got the timings wrong for the booking, but fortunately this didnt upset the waiters. It was nice to see the waiters all wearing cool trainers rather than stuffy shoes! We chose the taster menu with flights to match,... More

I enjoy eating. I enjoy dining. I even enjoy fine dining at well-regarded restaurants. But my first reaction was "sticker shock." This is probably one of the most expensive places I've been in any country. That said, it was worth it -- once. The food tasting is anchored by either your selection of a tasting menu (with I believe either... More

Had a great evening there. Drinks then amazing appetizers and superb dinner. Don't miss the cheese cart! The whole evening is a leisurely journey. Very rewarding. Don't miss it.

I recently stayed at the NH Barbizon for several days on a business trip. One night my colleagues and I had reservations at Vermeer and had an excellent dining experience. This is not my first time to the restaurant, it is a favorite of mine when in the mood for fine dining – it is a 5 star restaurant with... More

My partner and I visited Restaurant Vermeer during a long weekend trip to Amsterdam and wanted to treat ourselves to a fine dining experience, as we'll do periodically. We both opted for the four-course tasting menu with wine pairings, neither of us having eaten in this way previously (usually opting for a la carte). The amouse bouches were plentiful and... More

Cooking is elegant and tasty, and service gentle even if slow. After having waited a pretty long time, comes the pleasure time. I have to say that dessert is usually not my preferred meal. But at Vermeer, I got such a great pleasure that I got the two desserts! Chocolate, verbena, so tasty And fruity! You must go to Vermeer... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
