Can definitely recommend this cosy restaurant, one of the best in Nijmegen. We've been a couple of times, and although it is preferable to book, we haven't done so and have had a good meal both times. It's always worth trying the "Surprise" menu option as it is good value, never disappointing, and may introduce you to some delicious tastes... More

Restaurant het Heimwee has the talent to combine what's good in tradition without making it boring and what's good in modern times without making it cold. The atmosphere is lovely and relaxed. The food is great and the chef shows great skills to work with very specific menu instructions (in case of allergies). This is a gem to treasure.

Great food and beat value for money. Had been a long time that we have had a descent meal in the Netherlands. We also had great food at fam de boer in Zwolle called Librije or something. But value for money is another ball game. Had great fun with my friends. Cheers John (Texas USA)

The new chefs need to make themselves known in the area and you can tell. Awesome food! All wine recommendations were very well explained and a wonderful addition to the food!

Very friendly staff, relaxed yet classy atmosphere. The food is excellent (surprise menu is always a good surprise) and the choice of wines is a perfect fit. Trust the caviste. A great place for a romantic or a business dinner.

Spotted it on here, mailed for reservation - got rapid polite reply and a table about a week ahead of arrival. Easy to find as Nijmegen not too big town. Small, cosy by the river in Nijmegen - had chefs choice, a five course meal for 35€ and tried two of the Sommelier recommended wines - food an experience of... More

I would have never expected to find a restaurant like this in Nijmegen, what a wonderful surprise. I live in Nice, France, and this place puts most French restaurants in Nice to shame. Wonderful service, excellent presentation, top quality food, excellent wine, just a great experience.
