“Very good, for more than 35 years now.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2012

Their grilled meats and fish are excellent, the restaurant is always crowded, so you need to make a reservation.

“Good pub grub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

My wife and I enjoyed a return visit here recently. Once again the quality and amount of food provided reminded us of the reason we returned. The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive - even questioning the degree of cooking that was requested and also asking if the food was correctly cooked when it was presented. It is always very dimly lit with candles in this restaurant but it has a nice enjoyable atmosphere.
Most of all it offers great value for money.

“Good but not Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

This restaurant is very popular with my business colleagues who visit Nijmegen. Personally, I have other restaurants that prefer and offer better quality and value for money.

First and foremost its a steak restaurant and if that is what your priority is, then you will not be disappointed. However side orders, starters, wine etc are passable.

The service can be hit and miss. On some visited, we were well attended to, while on others it left alot to be desired.

“poor quality”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

very poor quality, they do not realise that gourmet has changed since 1990. Pitty, they really were great, but lost contact with reality!
