Confused from the very beginning since they have 2 entrances, which felt like 2 restaurants with the same name. The customer service is just elementary level. For example, the waitress took us to our table when it is not even clean up yet. Once we sat down, we waited for a very long time before the table was cleaned up... More

Tasty steaks and fish. Mussels are absolutely fantastic. If you want to have a nice proper dinner out at reasonable prices this is the place. Don't skip on the dessert would be a shame;)

I stopped here for an afternoon break during sightseeing, and it was a very good experience. I ordered the apple pie and a latte, and they were both very well done. The server was friendly and efficient. Since the Vlaams Arsenal is located near some excellent shopping, it is a good place to relax, people watch, and absorb the local... More

Reading the "WAITING ROOM" review, I must admit this happened to me years ago when I was sitting outside with a large group on the terrace. A very nice terrace, but nobody competent to serve it. I was starving, and the steak I ordered was inedible. So it was good you left Michael F! But this time I was inside... More

To be honest, I would not have given this place even one dot, but Tripadvisor do not give that option. Here's what happened. Welcomed in and a tip of the hat to the smiling chef, I decided since it was such a nice evening, to sit outside. The menu offered a sophisticated choice with an emphasis on grilled steaks -...

On the nice terrace, with friendly staff and lovely live music we enjoyed last evening of the Zomerfeesten with good value for money dinner.

Nothing fancy, but good atmosphere and good food. Ask for their special beers ! Located nicely in the town centre, with plenty of other things to do.

In the beginning of June, I was on a business trip in Nijmegen and ate at this restaurant with my colleague. The setting is really nice inside, and on warm days/nights you can also sit outside. I had the Stoofpot and it was good food for an okay price. Since I liked it a lot, a week later when I... More

Good food and a nice quaint location. Right next wall to a paid car park so very easy to access. Also in the centre of town and close to the railway station. Overall a nice decent place to have a meal.
