Restaurant Rijssel

Host Pieter Smit and chef Iwan Driessen share a love for French cuisine with a touch of the Flanders’ kitchen. Central to this way of cooking is the French rotîssoire (rotisserie). Roasting meat on the rotîssoire therefore plays a big rol in their restaurant Rijsel. You can order anything from a whole sucking pig to hens weighing over five pounds. They use everything from the animals, so expect classic French dishes like tête de veau (veal’s head) or langue de veau (veal’s tongue). And while you enjoy the honest and affordable food, you can observe the chefs in the open kitchen.



Rijssel fits perfectly into the Foodies profile. The tasty food and great dishes you are not likely to find on the menu of an average restaurant in Amsterdam will certainly make it worth your while. The menu changes regularly but something that you might get served is Onglet. This piece of beef is found behind the lungs of the cow is full of character and considered a real delicacy in France.
