“no need to moan about moenen"”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Grand cafe moenen is situated in the center of grote square and is part of a terrace of cafe/bars enjoyed by locals and tourists alike..it is a standard but very popular bar/cafe that consists of a traditional dark wooden interior [cool when sunny outside ] that are referred to as brown pubs.The terrace area is adequately furnished with "comfy" tables,chairs and parasols,and staff appeared very friendly and courtious when serving both good food and good local beers,..although much like a string of other terraced cafe/bars it felt authentic,friendly and very relaxed helping to make a very pleasant stay...not only "grand cafe moenen " but all " grote square cafe/bars " are worth a visit as each one has its own personal story and its own individual character....a stunning postcard square worth a visit.

“Average everything”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

For a Nijmegen restaurant Moenen is as average as they come. Food, prices and service are all somewhere in the middle of the scale. The decor, like most restaurants near it, is old fashioned.

The food on my visit was okay but not more. My steak came medium-well despite me ordering medium-rare and was on the small side. My friend's club sandwich was both bigger and better prepared.

All in all, Moenen is the kind of restaurant you might visit on a Wednesday night, but not where you go for a Saturday dinner.
