“good ambience, good value, room for improvement ..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Recommended by 'foodie' friends, we tried Rijsel on a Tuesday, and the place was heaving ... sign of its popularity ... must be doing something 'right' ...

Food - well, my fishsoup excelled, partner's terrine less so ... main courses of cod and baby chicken both well-executed , however did take 40 minutes 'wait' as kitchen struggled to serve the 'full house' ... dessert, pear sabayon, give a miss ...

Good price-quality ratio, clean fresh execution of dishes, if they fine-tuned their kitchen service plus 'upped the ante' on a few dishes, this place would then be 'brilliant' ..

as such, I'm reluctant to return as I dislike 'waiting long time for food' ..

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Without doubts my favourite restaurant in Amsterdam.
Nice atmosphere, attentive personnel and, the most important, amazing food.
I com from Spain and I every time I go to Rijsel I feel like being at home, homemade dishes done with a lot of care and the best fresh ingredients.
Definitely recommended.
