Vermeer is hard to describe. There is a choice of four, five and six course menus (no al a carte) and a sampling of ingredients that you might like or dislike (e.g., oysters, pork, scallops etc.), but with no explanation about how the dishes will...More

Every course beautiful, dramatic, imaginative. Our 2 adventurous children were well looked after. They were willing to try everything, anything containing alcohol was carefully adjusted without any fuss

We ate here to mark a special occasion, and it was a very memorable meal - from the nibbles that accompanied the pre-dinner drinks to the menu (simply a list of ingredients that would appear sometime during the course of the meal), from the impeccable...More

This is a fascinating place to eat. You are constantly surprised by unexpected combinations which really do work. The amuses appear challenging but are an explosion of complementary tastes. The meal (we had 5 courses) was excellent, building upon solid foundations of excellent ingredients, and...More

Very impressive. Thoughtful and prompt service. Professional, chic but relaxed. People are enjoying themselves here and the cooking is wonderful. Unpretentious but rich in flavors and creative in combinations. The wine list was also quite good; they may want to add more experimental wines though,...More

More bistro-like than the old, somewhat stiff, Vermeer, great food is provided by British chef Chris Naylor formerly of Roux. Excellent cooking, good choice of accompanying wines by the sommelier, informal but efficient service. The menu is hard to understand, bring written like a poem...More

The six course menu with wine package was great. It was a truly great experience. The sommelier (Simon Veldman) had "contagious" enthusiasm, but some of the other staff seemed less interested.

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

Restaurant Vermeer just opposite Amsterdam’s Central Station in the Barbizon Palace Hotel is one of the finest restaurants in the city. The luxurious Old Dutch décor – marble tiled floors, monumental fireplaces, Delft tiles and plates, austere chandeliers – does suggest something of the master painter’s interiors. But it would take more than a servant-girl’s pearl earring wages to properly enjoy a meal at Vermeer. This is Michelin-starred, high-end, complex, refined European cuisine under the deft hand and watchful eye of Chris Naylor. The menu includes various irresistible multi-course and tasting options, and, while it changes with the season, offers dishes like starter of caviar and Colchester oysters served with veal tongue, truffle, red beet and seaweed chutney, main course of penne pasta with pheasant, walnuts, acorn bread and oloroso crème, and dessert of custard tart with figs, muscovado sugar and raisins. The wine list includes more than 300 labels, and you’ll want to avail yourself of the excellent sommelier’s opinions. Two private rooms can accommodate up to 20 or 30 respectively for memorable celebrations and events.
