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...

Friend recommended Rijsel as a Belgian restaurant, not sure how accurate that was! Very busy - good thing but bit packed. Menu eclectic & little unusual - had poussin which was good but not inspiring. Would go again but not for business.

Dinner for 4 here in one of Amsterdam's bright spots in modern Dutch cuisine. Lots of fresh, organic ingredients, better meat dishes. Not a great place for families with younger children or vegetarians (they have a few dishes but this is not who they are catering to). Great for romantic dinners or intimate catch up dinners with friends. You won't... More

2nd visit within a few months and both times very impressed with the food, wine and service. Never has something as simple as a poussin tasted so heavenly. This is the must try dish if you have not been before. Love the wine list, there is a super Champagne to start with and a very nice selection of predominantly southern... More

This was my second visit to Rijsel. The first time was shortly after the restaurant was started. It was a great experience so we came back. Unfortunately but very visible they could not maintain their initial high quality of food and service. A conversation at our table was almost not possible as aside us there was a large table of...
