‘Als ik de groenteboer bel zeg ik niet ik wil dit en dat. Ik bel hem en vraag wat heb je?’ Aldus chef Chris Naylor van restaurant Vermeer. De van oorsprong Britse chef werkt alleen met groen dat daadwerkelijk op dat moment voor handen is. Is iets helaas niet meer te verkrijgen, dan past hij zijn menu daarop aan. Je zult hier niet snel dure producten zoals foie gras en kreeft zien, maar wel kwalitatief goede ingrediënten waarvan de smaak optimaal is. De producten in hun pure vorm, daar draait het hier om. Naylor experimenteert graag met groentes. Dit doet hij met producten die hij van kwekers uit de buurt aangeleverd krijgt en in de zomer met groen van zijn eigen daktuin. Maar ook voor bijzondere vis- en vleesgerechten kun je hier terecht. Je eet vier, vijf of zes gangen die bestaan uit ingrediënten die het huidige seizoen te bieden hebben. De kwaliteit van de gerechten is zoals je mag verwachten van een sterrenzaak en ook de bediening is attent en alert zonder stijfjes te zijn. Een fijn restaurant voor een uitgebreid diner. De comfortabele stoelen en banken nodigen in ieder geval uit tot een lange zit!

INSIDER tip

Tip van bySam: Restaurant Vermeer heeft een toffe lounge bij de bar. Ideaal om eerst even rustig een drankje te doen voordat je aan tafel gaat.

About the restaurant Restaurant Vermeer

1-sterren Michelinrestaurant Vermeer in Amsterdam van Chris Naylor heropende in juni 2016 zijn deuren na een grondige renovatie. Er wordt op hoog niveau gekookt en ook de service is hoogstaand, maar toch kan de sfeer van het restaurant het beste omschreven worden als casual.

De natuur is de belangrijkste inspiratiebron voor Chris en er wordt gekookt volgens het ritme van de seizoenen. Ingrediënten worden zo lokaal mogelijk ingekocht en verschillende groenten en kruiden komen uit de daktuin van het bijbehorende NH Collection Hotel. Voor een aperitief kun je terecht bij de intieme bar, waar seizoenscocktails worden geserveerd.

Restaurant Vermeer werkt met een vast menu, waarbij de gast alleen het aantal gangen aan hoeft te geven. De beschikbaarheid van ingrediënten die Chris krijgt aangereikt van zijn leveranciers bepaalt het menu. De gerechten kunnen dus dagelijks verschillen. Uiteraard kan met alle dieetwensen rekening worden gehouden!

The restaurant was great considering it’s Michelin star the atmosphere was very amazing it was very relaxing and not over the top. The food was excellent and the staff incredibly friendly. We were very impressed even though we do not like to eat menues the Vermeer really changed our opinion on that.

The food was delicious. The young lady who took our order got it incorrect and then overcharged us for the amount of courses which we ordered versus the courses actually delivered to us. Even the last item on the menu was not delivered to us because we declined tea or coffee. We were also overcharge for bottles of water. When each of these errors were pointed out the bill was changed but not the slightest bit of expression of regret for the error was to be heard.

Excellent all around. Innovative nouvelle cuisine reminiscent of fab restaurants in San Francisco. Considerate staff who upon seeing one of our diners had to leave early discounted the meal.

So, there is a certain expectation level that you go with when heading to a Michelin star restaurant and Vermeer disappointed on many levels.
I went here for to celebrate a special occasion but it wasn't very relaxed with an incessant crying infant throughout the evening in the background.


Please don't get me wrong - The menu and the food were brilliant. The number of additional amuse bouche's and courses that you get with any choice that you make is impressive. One or two of the dishes were a little too salty but I was ok with it; my friends on the other hand couldn't enjoy those dishes at all as it was too much for them.
Where the restaurant fell short was on the service and the ambiance.
The service was not coordinated and well-managed at all - I would give brownie points for the effort but the laying and removing of the courses was not at the same time. Sometimes, we didn't get an explanation of what we were eating.
The ambiance is beautiful but not very cozy. When we went in, we were next to a table with a crying infant so we changed our table but we could still hear the crying in the other part of the restaurant throughout our 3-hour dinner.


Bottom-line: good food but not "special" ; could do with better ambiance, service.

We had a fantastic night for the birthday of my boyfriend, there was also an amazing cake as surprise at the end of our dinner. The wine pairing was excellent. The only reason because we give "just" good to "Decoration and Atmosphere" instead of "Very Good" was because our table wasn't in the decorated dining room.
