We dined at Vinkeles (located in The Dylan hotel) on our last trip to Amsterdam about five years ago, so this was a repeat visit. Not only did it live up to our high expectations, it exceeded them. As on our last visit to Amsterdam,...More

I have to say Vinkeles is perfect! Food, ambience, style, service - its perfect and it deserves its Michelin-star!! The waiters were attentive and thefood really innovative - we took the 7 course-menu with accompagning wines and it was worth every penny!

Probably the best meal I have ever had. Not only that, but the staff were delightful and even signed a birthday card. It may have seemed expensive but considering what the experience was it was not unreasonable. We would love to go back.

In general there is no tiping in Amsterdam because there is usually a service charge. However, if one really likes the service, which is amazing at Vinkeles, one can chose to tip.

Description
Vinkeles is housed in an old bakery; which was set up in 1787 by the Regents of the Catholic Church, who at the time owned the building. The bakery flourished until 1811 and guests still can see the original ovens, which were discovered intact during restoration work.Echoing the décor of the hotel, Executive Chef Dennis Kuipers’ menu combines the traditional and the modern. The dishes served in Vinkeles show Kuipers’ love of the contemporary French cuisine. He combines the freshest ingredients to produce a menu that is delicious and unique to Vinkeles. In 2009 restaurant Vinkeles was awarded a Michelin star.
