Lovely, special, place with great food and great service. The portion are a bit small, even for an exclusive restaurant.

One of the few restaurants that truly merit 5 stars. The service was amazing. The food was exceptional. I have a shellfish allergy and they accommodated with a flawless foie gras dish. We enjoyed a drink in the lounge by the fire after dinner. Can not wait to go back.

Everything about this restaurant makes for a fabulous dining experience: exquisite modern French cuisine, gorgeous setting in and old bakery, impeccable service. I had the chance to dine there for a special occasion and we were blown away by the place, the staff and the food. Not to be missed if you are after a unique dining experience in Amsterdam.

The art on a plate was more delicious than it was visually appealing, and the visual appeal was incredible. Beautiful food, both for the eyes, and for the taste buds. I cannot conjure adequate words for the experience I had having the dinner course we were lucky enough to receive. The Service is unbeatable, the food is absolutely outstanding, and... More

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. My friend is a vegetarian with several food allergies and they created a special menu just for her. It was phenomenal. The service was outstanding. We stayed for hours and loved every minute. Go - Go - Go, already.

I suppose this used to be an old bakery, and the restauration work is excellent, missing only some sound absorbent material, as it can Gerber quite loud even if the place is intimate. We chose the set menu to try all the sourprising delicacies offered, and it's a feast. The presentation in some cases is unique, and the structuring of... More

While staying at the Dylan Hotel Amsterdam my wife and I dined at its Michelin Star restaurant Vinkeles. What an amszing experience. From the array of intriguing amuse bouche through the main courses and wine, everything was egat you'd expect from this level od restaurant. All wait staff were gracious and engaging. A must-do Amsterdam experience.
