Located not far from the city center, this rather small restaurant proposes a good choice of carefully prepared courses that are served in a nice environment. Service is efficient and the wine choice rather broad. To be recommended!

This restaurant is not bad, but it's also definitely not as special as it is advertised. I wrongly thought that I was in for a "fine dining" experience, but the reality is very far from this. This is just an expensive restaurant with average food. Nothing is special in there! I ordered the 5 dishes "Savarijn menu". Dishes are well... More

Great and original food, great wines, together with lovely service and an amazing atmosphere. Prices are above midrange so we're not going here every month but when we have a special occasion this is one of my favourite restaurants in Nijmegen.

A very good restaurant, relaxing atmosphere, excellent wines. The hostess and the chef are the owners of the restaurant, which expresses itself into a very warm stay. There is enough choice in meals, also for vegetarians and people with special diets.

This restaurant had the big advantage to be in the same building as our hotel Hertogplein. So no need to take the car out of the garage. The service was good and friendly. Our choice of wine was lucky and excellent. The dining room is small and a bit crowded with tables close to each other. The food was excellent.

Visited with friends as it was immediately below our hotel rooms, very convenient. Good choice, it has a short but varied menu and delivered well cooked and well presented food in pleasant modern surroundings

Had dinner with friends and heard positive things about the restaurant. The atmosphere was reasonable but the rest was really middle of the road. As mentioned in other reviews the open winner list was very limited and the waiter forgot our drinks. When the plates were served there was not sorry explanation about the food. I know I can try...

As a resident of Nijmegen we have eaten at the Savarijn dozens of times. With family, friends or business, Savarijn delivers always. I would describe the atmosphere as chique, but also warm and friendly. The winelist is a real treat for winelovers like myself and recieved the Award of Excellence from the Wine Spectator "for having one of the most... More
