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

I can only say good things about this restaurant. The food was excellent. Plates were not only original and well ellaborated, they were actually tasty (so, if you don't have a "fancy palate", so to speak, don't be afraid). The products are absolutely flawless, the cook and his team (I asume) doa really great job selecting and taking care of... More

The food was amazing, but the sommelier was disappointing. He matched a wine with a main course that we did not have. The menu changed the week before. For a michelin star restaurant this is unacceptable. His choice of wines were more than once poor in my opinion. Would not go again.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The amuse bouche were elegant, not run-of-the-mill and just kept on coming. We also enjoyed watching the savoury ice cream being made tableside with many theatrics and plenty of nitrogen! The wines were intelligently chosen and again, not the standard stuff, so it was fascinating to hear the sommelier talk about them.... More

We dined from the à la carte menu on a Monday evening. The restaurant was surprisingly full. I enjoyed a delicious 3 courses of lobster with rhubarb, rib eye for main course and chocolate tart for dessert. The food was fantastic, flavoursome and perfectly cooked. In addition the kitchen send out numerous tastes: milk-bread with dukkah, salted rhubarb with cheese... More

Went there for an anniversary and it exceeded my expectations. Yes, the food is amazing as one would expect in such a fine dining establishment. What made it stand out even more for me was the staff. Semi casually dressed, they were great with hitting the right note with all the tables. My girlfriend and myself enjoyed the explanations from... More

For such a highly touted restaurant, our expectation were high but at the end the food choices were peculiar and the service uber slow. The food was somewhat bland. My vegetable casserole was not a casserole at all but a salad with some cooked and some raw vegetables. The fish and scallops were almost sushi style and not as flavorful.... 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.
