The name of this place is Rijsel Rotisserie and is hidden somewhere in the area of the Amstel station. The name is how you’d call in Flemish the city of Lille in France, and it is indeed the case: a joyous combination of French cuisine with – I’d say – a strong Flemish inflection. If you do not know it, you would not find it, as the entrance, in an old building which resembles a school, or a hospital, is inconspicuous. It is like a well-kept secret. Then you enter a large dining hall which has something parochial about it, a familiar feeling which is reinforced by the hearty fare – you have chicken, venison, beef tartare…you name it. the wine list is also super good. The atmosphere is convivial, mostly a Dutch clientele. Really worth it.
