We don't usually spend this kind of money for dinner (100-200 pp), especially not when it's out of pocket and at a 5 minute bike ride from home. But, it was our one and only 25th anniversary. And a worthy celebration it was. The ever changing menu exists of a choice for the desired number of courses, and a 'word... More

Vermeer was one of our favourite restaurants in Amsterdam so we were very keen to visit it after it had a major refurbishment. Everything has changed and not for the better. The fireplace has gone and so have menus. You now get a cryptic list of ingredients and are asked about any allergies you might suffer, before being served a... More

I had dinner with three of my friends. I am vegetarian. I think the menu they show you is misleading because they dont serve all the ingredients mentioned on this menu. They told this after our last course. They choose for you, also for the non vegetarien friends of mine.Only you can say what you dont like. The written menu... More

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

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.

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

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.
