My favorite place for lunch in combination with Rijksmuseum visit. Take your time to enjoy the variety of small dishes. Good wine card of which you can have most wines by the glass. Dishes are great, original, great textures and tastes, very well presented. Staff is friendly and willing, but lacks professionalism. However, great place to be.

Just a few meters from the museum entrance this large restaurant with a nice terrace is a must.
Nice welcome by a lady speaking many languages including French.
Mix crowd of locals and tourists always a good sign.
Nice menu with choices of small dishes to a full 4 course menu. Nice meat that you can choose, age and weight.
Very good food and good service by smiling people.
Also choice of good wines by the glass.
Service can be a bit slow, if you're in a hurry let them know.
I'll go back there for sure.

We had lunch at Rijks (after having dinner three months ago). The menu offers a great collection of small dishes. We had cod, the green gazpacho, girolles, crab (a must do), gnocchi and a strawberry deserts. Beautiful dishes, executed to perfection.
The wine list (with many open wines) is good. Do try the Dutch wines on the menu. You'll be surprised.
The service is okay. The staff is very friendly! But, we had 8 different waiters at our table and nobody seems to feel responsible for what's going on. E.g. we had to ask for bread three times. A dinner or lunch will take 2 to 3 hours (and it's worth taking this time).
Very good price/quality. We'll be back for more.

Dear mister Van Amstel,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. Nice to hear you had a great lunch after you first diner a few months ago!
Also thanks for the feedback you gave us about the service/waiters. Usually we work with one waiter per table, so it is definitely not the meaning that you have several waiters at your table during one lunch.

Hope to see you back soon!

This restaurant has a really high rating on TA. The food is good. But it is expensive, even for Amsterdam. €12.00 for about 8 gnocchi. €6.50 for a 350 ml bottle of water!

Dear sir/madam,

We are very sorry to hear you did not have a good experience at RIJKS. We serve dishes in between main courses and starters, so the portions are maybe a bit smaller then you are used too.

Hopefully next time we can show you what we are really capable of.

Regards,

Restaurant RIJKS

We met friends visiting from the US in Amsterdam and had lunch at Rijks. The place was wonderful, on a sunny terrace with a view on the Rijksmuseum. The food served (meat and fish) was excellent, very tasty and fresh. The service was nice and helpful. A place to recommend for "Gourmets". Higher prices do compensate with excellent quality.
