RIJKS® opened its doors in 2014 in the Philips Wing of the Rijksmuseum with Joris Bijdendijk at the helm as the restaurant’s Executive Chef.
Together with kitchen Chefs Ivan Beusink and Yascha Oosterberg, Bijdendijk introduced his Low Countries’ cuisine, which is firmly rooted in Dutch produce – in all its modest glory. The chef and his young team draw their inspiration from ingredients grown on Dutch soil, often making use of the many international flavours that have influenced Dutch cuisine across the centuries.
RIJKS® received a Michelin star in 2016, rose from 16.5 to 17 points in the Gault & Millau guide in 2019 and was included in the brand new ranking list of the team behind The Worlds 50 Best Restaurants that same year; the 50 Best Discovery.
