We had lunch in one the days we were visiting the museums.
Many of the dishes were from the French cuisine.
We tried several dishes and all were great, both as presentation and taste.
We also tried one their wines and it was excellent.
Worth a visit if you're in the area.

Enjoyed immensely a very good lunch among family members. The service was perfect. The decoration is bespoke-modern done with great taste.

a really nice lunch in a really nice place. the odd mis-step (some weird marmitey stuff under the smoked eel starter), mostly excellent. the pork knuckle was a barn-stormer, a fabulously balanced dish. the dessert was a stonker. the muller thurgau from maastricht was a well priced revelation. service was really good.

Dear Vaz2016,

After several hours of enjoying the fabulous Rijksmuseum (a feast in itself), I was delighted to visit the restaurant, which is just adjacent to the museum. I sat in the outdoor garden area with a view of the museum facade, lit by the early evening western sun. What a setting for a lovely meal! I selected several smaller dishes, (my favorite kind of meal), starting with a very nice amuse-bouche of avocado and radish slices, followed by the ceviche of scallops, then the snow crab with coconut bisque, and a dessert of thin chocolate slabs with orange sauce and hazelnut and a decaf cappuccino. All of these dishes were excellent, high quality, tasty, well-prepared and beautifully presented. The chef and staff had put a lot of creativity and skill into creating unusual combinations and contrasts of flavors, colors, shapes and textures. The flavors of the foamy coconut bisque and the orange sauce were amazing, delicate yet intense. The staff were very helpful, friendly, accommodating, and attentive, and went out of their way to select foods that worked around my food allergies. The pace of the courses was relaxed, just right. I was very happy with my dinner!

We had a delightful lunch at Rijks a hour before our afternoon in the museum. Had a perfectly prepared langoustine and some outstanding oysters, accompanied by the restaurant's own chenin blanc, which was delicious. Highly recommended.
