Description: 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.

“A wonderful night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

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 about the whole evening, really nice food, excellent wine, pleasant surroundings, very friendly.We are going back in June and will be looking to eat there again.

“Never had so much fun in a restaurant, with the owner and the other guests”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

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 gave us the best evening in years in a restaurant. We visited this place with a group of friends, and we all had tears in our eyes from laughing, laughing and even more laughing.
