Rijks

$$$$

Museumstraat 2, Amsterdam
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

The latest scientific research shows that 9 out of 10 museum restaurants suck, but Rijks is the exception. Instead of pricey salads and poncho-covered tour groups, you’ll find fashionable locals going in on tasting menus at this modern Dutch restaurant. Despite the popularity of the set menu, our move here is to order a la carte. Order one of their platters, like their chicken dish that comes presented on a brass sculpture of chicken legs, and a few plates like beetroot millefeuille and BBQ leek to share while you wait. If you’re spending a high culture day in Museumkwartier, a meal at Rijks makes for the perfect break or ending.

New Draver

The Surinamese dishes at New Draver in Amsterdam-Oost are a must before a big day of biking.
