The revised finishings in Vermeer really bring a breath of fresh air to an already great restaurant. Minimalist and uncluttered decor create a sense of openness and calm in an otherwise busy part of the city. Secret menu was creative and didn't disappoint, allowing you to select the number of courses with only the ingredients as information. Execution was top... More

A review by my dad: Vermeer, dedicated to the great Dutch painter Johannes, became a truly pleasant surprise to us after we reviewed several people's comments on TripAdvisor and then decided to visit the restaurant. I usually refer to Twitter and TripAdvisor for people's written feelings, but use them in my mind with some guarded conscientiousness. This is obviously because... More

I had a great meal at Vermeer and the food was excellent however it was slightly pretentious and the evening came to a bad end when they couldnt find my boyfriends coat in the cloakroom- they did eventually find it but it isnt the type of service you expect in a high quality restaurant. Overall I enjoyed the evening but... More

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.

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.
