Popular and high rated restaurant with a French-Flemish cuisine.
Restaurant Rijsel* in Amsterdam serves as a main course standard baked potatoes and salad with a good piece of meat or fish with a gourmet sauce. A combination of Flemish no nonsense food with French gastronomy.
The food is extremely good, and comforting, and the service friendly, and quirky.
Since its opening in 2012, the eatery has been permanently packed with locals.
* The name Rijsel is the Dutch name for the northern French city of Lille.
The décor is industrial French with whitewashed walls, natural stone and steel. The dining tables are from France. The windows have curtains and window sills are equipped with red mottled marble. The rôtissoire (roasting tray) comes from Paris.
The imperfection of the interior makes Rijsel easily accessible and provides a living room feel.
