Awesome experience. Upon entering left my worldy posessions at the (free) coatroom and proceeded to have a great culinary adventure. I had three fine de claire oysters, followed by fine de claire oyster with apple and topinambur, finished with trout on a flan, had an espresso to balance the decent red wine accompanying thw dishes. I did like the avocade dusted with powdered dried mushrooms. Seriously recommended.

We enjoyed dinner at this restaurant, we did book well in advance before we left Australia. It has great modern decor, excellent, friendly English speaking staff, and really interesting food.
Complimentary bread was amazing.
Well worth a visit.

We booked a table at the Rijks on arriving at the museum district as we know the restaurant is very popular and we did not want to miss sampling their menu. We were not disappointed! From the gentleman who greeted us at reception to the waiting staff, everyone was friendly and helpful. We went for a selection of their little dishes which were all delicious and very clever in the juxtaposition of their ingredients. The carrot jerky was particularly interesting and the artichoke with oyster, a clever combination which left a nice salty taste in the mouth. The bread was fresh baked and the amuse bouche was delicious. The wines by the glass were excellent and reasonably priced but we were amused that the bottled water was more expensive than some of the wines by the glass. Try and eat early as the tables are uncomfortably close together and the restaurant is packed later into the evening . All in all, a lovely experience at a restaurant which deserves its Michelin star.

Celebrating our 20th anniversary with a dinner for 2 at Rijks, my husband and I had a wonderful evening. The culinary part was excellent (we had the Rjks table menu), surprising combinations that were accompanied by an excellent wine arrangement.

The staff was polite and friendly (something that is can be a rare thing in Amsterdam) and even though we were served by different staff members, we felt noticed and taken care of in a very pleasant way. Thank you for giving us such a nice time at your restaurant.

Had a coffee here after our museum visit. Had a job to find cups as it was self service then first one was dirty. Coffee was average for a vending machine

Dear JAMES M,

I think you gave your review to the wrong place. We are RIJKS restaurant adjacent to the museum; we are not in possession of a coffee vending machine.

Kind regards,
