This place is hidden in one of the side streets from the famous Amsterdam Amstel. And when you enter you doesn't recognize the quality directly. The place interior is a bit retro. But then the welcome with waitress is very warm and gentle. You feel directly at home. Once you're at your table and looking to the menu while drinking... More

I can really recommend this place. The food is easy but of high quality and well cooked. For 34 euros you can choose a starter, aber main dish and a dessert. The staff is very attentive and recommends a specific wine for each plate. I ate a fish soup, the chicken and a chocolate creme. I give 4 stars because... More

Simple recipes but very tasty and well prepared. We booked the whole restaurant for a special event. The service was great. Food was good, well prepared and warm exactly as necessary when needed. Good wines.

One of the best places in Amsterdam to have dinner or lunch. The quality of food is high. The staff is friendly and it has exceptional good service compared to horrible service in most restaurants and cafes in the country. It is also very clean.

3 star rating, as this is a nice restaurant to visit, but there are better ones on the same category. It lacks a bit of atmosphere, the food is good, though one dish was not, and the winelist very good. Great staff too. We have been trying to get a table for ages and unfortunately got the worst table in... More

We visited Rijsel on Valentines Day. We've also visited 'De Scheepskameel' (DS), which we believed belongs to the same group of owners/chef? As that evening was nothing short of perfect, we imagined that Rijsel would probably leave us with the same emotion. The venue is a little bit hidden in what seems to be a residential building, interior very similar... More

We had a very fine meal here with a friend recently. It is a serious kitchen matched with a loud and appreciative clientele. It is a "happening" spot, so quiet intimate conversations are out of the question. But superbly cooked small chickens, fish and meat are a certain. Accompaniments include fresh dressed lettuce leaves and herbed roasted potatoes. Menu is... More

The Amsterdam food scene has improved immeasurably over the last few years and It's largely due to the arrival of restaurants like Rijsel that have brought genuine quality to the Amsterdam food scene,I actually believe Rijsel to be one of the only true five star restaurants the city has to offer, it's a gem and if your lucky enough to...
