This was the first restaurant we visited upon arriving in Amsterdam. We were pleasantly surprised with the quick service and the delicious food! The patio is huge and comfortable. The service is great and friendly!

Too cool to sit outside on the day we visited. Moving inside is entering a restaurant which shouts 'we know what we are doing'. Food excellent, attentive and friendly staff, great surroundings (the bottle display over a whole wall is inspired). Not as cheap as...More

Sat outside for lunch on a gorgeous day in Rembrandt square. Had a Heineken and an AMAZING burger. Once of the best I've ever had. Very nice and efficient staff.

You can go here for many reasons and if you’re not hungry it is still a great idea to go here for the drinks or just to enjoy the DJ in action. Nice place, great music and extraordinary special Gin and Tonics!

We had lunch in kitchen & bar Van Rijn. The steak and fries were very good. The ceasar salad was tasteless on the other hand. Would come back for the steak though! The staff was very friendly and the interior was amazing

visited with company colleques had a great meal well there was a lot of people and you feel pushed in when you are sitting on large tables in the middle of the restaurant, but wines and food were very nice.

Having visited van Rijn several times in the past few months, I can say that it’s one of my favourite places to grab a drink. Super friendly staff and wide selection of drinks/food makes for a perfect combination.More

Went on Friday evening at 6.15pm. The surroundings are fantastic and very quirky. The food was amazing. Our server for the evening was Dongmei. She explained every detail of every course that we had. Great girl. Knows her stuff.

Not sure of some of the negative reviews on here. I found this restaurant to be wonderful. It was recommended by my hotel and they were totally on it with this one. First of all, the space is beautiful. You walk in and are mesmerized...More

Looks really nice and fancy but the service is terrible. It takes forever for someone to come outside to take the order and actually we had finished our meals and for half an hour nobody came to our table to clean or ask if we...More
