We had a wonderful dinner here. This is a newer restaurant on the river in an old warehouse. The food was wonderful and fresh with a nice variety on the menu. The service was outstanding. It is wonderful to see a revitalization of the area.

The surroundings with the view of the Waal was very nice, we saw the sunset from our table. The waitress was very helpful and polite. The menu was limited, and do not recommend to take kids. None of the children liked the food. We went with group of 16. The adults enjoyed their meal. The industrial design is fun and... More

Our son & his fiancée are planning to hold their wedding reception here next September, so we thought we'd take a look. We are from Melbourne ,Australia so are not familiar with Nijmegen. Making our way into a heavy industrial area, through a pitted and cracked concrete car park alongside the River Waal, abandoned old warehouses draped in street art... More

It's a great place, in an old soupfactory, old industrial design, open kitchen. You find two of the kettles in the restaurant. Tables at the window have a marvelous view over the river. Food is fine. Menu not as surprising as I had expected, but very nice. Something completely different. A bit difficult to find. Look for signs on the... More

The place feels really cosy and the interior is amazing. Overall the food was not that amazing, I had salmon and a fish dish - both a bit lack of taste. And it took a really long time before the head meal arrived, while there were not many people. (45mins)

I really enjoyed this place, atypical. But what was really great, besides the food, which is excellent, was the gentleness and caring from the waiter: I am gluten and lactose intolerant and ...I was treated like a queen! Really! And I could see that it was important for them to please their clients. Thanks!

This restaurand is located in an old factory in Nijmegen. This factory is known all over town. They left quite a lot in tact, so you can recognise the features of the factory. You can pick several dishes, but they have agreat menu (3 courses) too. The menu changes regurarly. All the dishes include locally produced ingredients. You can ask... More

Housed in an old factory with neighbours like a brewery, a coffee-shop (real coffee, not the dutch 'coffee') and a chocolate bar, this restaurant is a great place to have diner. Menu changes regularly and includes many locally produced ingredients. When you're with few people, ask for a window seat on the balcony for a great view on the Waal... More

The non eating policy on the terrace in the summer is a bit ridiculous, especially without any real logical explanation that would arise. Outside the tables definitely look more like an eating area and those inside more like a café ... but aside of my personal impression something was definitely easily measured and that was time. The waiting time is... More

After some searching you'll be rewarded with next level gintonics, lovely meals and friendly staff in an industrial setting. Everything is homemade and of local produce. Had a great evening in this marvelous establishment.
