Welcome! Our kitchen can be characterized as 'real cooking' according to the spirit of the Slow Food movement. Bread, cookies and everything inbetween is homemade with regional and seasonal ingredients. The atmosphere is friendly, a relaxed 'living room' where socializing just happens, making friends, even if it's just for one evening. According to our guests "de rijke jansen" is a unique experience in Valkenburg, best to be checked by yourself.

Great concept, great experience!

We were guided here by Tripadvisor and we had a very great night overall! Firstly I'd recommend their special menu. Appetiser + 3 courses with 3 ( greatly ) matched glasses of wine + coffee. The rest is a surprise, I'd say trust the owner Hennie ( great host btw ) on this one! But don't be... read more

My partner and I had a fantastic meal here on Saturday night. Hennie is a terrific host, welcoming us with a glass of wine in the cave before serving a delicious three-course meal with matching wines. The philosophy of the Slow Food Movement was evident in the preparation and presentation of our meals. The atmosphere was very convivial - we... More

We booked in the morning, and we're told that the evening was quiet for bookings. We arrived at 7.15 and discussed what we would like for the four course meal with wine. We then sat in the cave with a glass of wine while the smoked trout salad was prepared. When this was ready we went to the table and... More

After reading the reviews in Tripadvisor, we decided to try this restaurant. We were not disappointed, on the contrary we were very pleased with the food, the service, the atmosphere and the price. The restaurant is very small, I think it has place for a maximum of 20-25 people tops. The owner Hennie Jansen explains that you can order you... More

We were in Valkenburg for a weekend in order to attend the Andre Rieu concert. While we were walking around we saw the Wijncafe. Not knowing what to expect we went in and talked to the owner who explained what the cafe was all about. We were interested so arranged to go that evening. We were really pleased with everything...

This restaurant is very special. The owner and his wife run the place. It only has place for about maximum of 20 to 30 guests. You choose your wine and the owner serves a menu (which suits your wines). The food is all from the local farms and shops (most biological). The owner has a superiour feeling for humor. He... More
