“Best meat in town”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Plus points
- Great dishes available
- Go for the meat 'cause this is by far, the best meat in town - grilled & perfectly cooked!
- The bread is fresh & delicious, especially dipped & mixed with the side sauces (cocktail, garlic & kerry sauces)
- Good service

Minus points
- No outdoor seating, terrace or scenic views
- Perhaps a little dark for our liking, but it does add to the coziness (so it depends on you ;) )

“Already more than 30 years quality”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This restaurant is founded in the 70's and it still has the same concept. The food is from a great quality and value for money. it is presented on a wooden dish with cole slaw, and perfect baked potatoes.

“let down by waiter at last min..”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

My husband raved on his bok kebab and I enjoyed the steak (although dear) with the fried potatos and leeks and cheese.
A dear meal with a bottle of wine but service was good and friendly. It was let down by the waiter assuming a generous 10% tip and not bringing back the change after paying. We would have left a good tip but it should not be assumed !

“Couldn't have been better”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Nijmegan closes early so we worried that we might have limited options. Our luck was in.
This was a real find. Pub atmosphere with dimmed lights and lot's of wood. Lot's of smiling customers. Everything in dutch but no problem as the staff were friendly and helpful and translated for us while they kept the beers flowing. They recommended the mixed grill which was both excellent quality and big enough for my big appetite. Price was good value too!

“Excellent food in a charming old fashioned atmosphere at good prices.”
Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

This charming pub styled restaurant has a good menu and specialises in tasty well cooked pub food.
The decor is old fashioned and the stuffed Bok head stares benevolently down from the wall. The room feels candle lit and has that snug feel that makes you feel at home and want to linger.
The staff are attentive and have perfect English, making sure that you are looked after well.
