About us

The kitchen

The kitchen is best described as Chris’s culinary laboratory. In the course of a creative process Chris and his team transform everyday ingredients to complex dishes with pure and vigorous flavours.

The Chef

British Chef Chris Naylor is what they call quirky. His genius palate and creative spirit ensure continuous innovation of dishes. Chris is not afraid to push the boundaries and certainly does not like overworked and pretentious bullshit in food.

The lounge

Your evening will start with a moment of relaxation in Vermeer's lounge bar. Here, our bartender experiments daily with new cocktails and matching bar bites.

Business dinner

A business dinner? In Room 69, Vermeer can accommodate groups of up to 28 guests for lunch or dinner. Vermeer is an ideal meeting spot: right in front of Amsterdam Central Station and with valet parking on request.

NH Collection

Vermeer is part of the NH Collection Barbizon Palace hotel. NH Collection is the upper-upscale brand of NH Hotel Group. Gastronomy plays a prominent role in the NH Collection experience.

Amsterdam holds three NH Collection hotels, all with an extensively surprising culinary offer.
