    Het Lemke: Het Lemke

    by egonwegh Updated Dec 22, 2014

    Visited with Taxus, an organisation that takes care of the elderly, for their Xmas lunch on 19 December 2014. There was live music and dancing on this occasion too. Spur trail of the Napoleon trail. It is said that back in 1810, the Emperor Napoleon visited the brewery that stood on this same spot ; but notwithstanding the fact that it is a very old establishment, it has to be acknowledged that a lot of yarns have been spun about this building.

    Favorite Dish: We had oxtail soup, chicken filet and a generous serving of icecream. It all tasted very good.

    Heksendans: Dance of the Witches

    by egonwegh Updated Sep 15, 2014

    Just outside the town of Nijmegen, in Berg en Dal ("Hill and Valley"). The restaurant is called Heksendans, which translates in English as the Dance of the Witches.

    Favorite Dish: We come here every now and then for pancakes and/or icecream. Directly opposite is a well-known amusement park 'Tivoli' (what's in a name...?). Be careful not to trip on a witch, the restaurant is crammed with them.

    Landhuis de Duckenburg/Eten bij Zusje: In stately mansion in Dukenburg

    by egonwegh Updated Jul 21, 2014

    19 July 2014. The restaurant is a stately mansion in a park-like setting with trees and a pond, in the Nijmegen town district Dukenburg. We were here with a friend of ours who is a vegetarian. So the cook had to improvise a dish, because they seemed not very well prepared for receiving vegetarians. Because temperatures approached 30 degr. C, we dined outdoors.

    Favorite Dish: J. and I had a three course menu for which we paid 24.50 euro each, with salmon and artichoke; saltimbocca (that's an Italian dish, veal lined with prosciutto) ; and a slice of pie with icecream for dessert.

    Eetcafe De Muis: De Muis

    by egonwegh Updated Jul 21, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were here with family members aunt M. and Frank on the final day of the Four Days' Marches, 18 July 2008. Also present were Frank's walking mate and her family. I borrowed this picture from the website of the restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: Some nice cool beer - König Ludwig Weissbier, a Bavarian brand apparently - mineral water, and Schnitzel. Jennie and I paid 15 euro each (2008). We returned on 9 May 2009, and on that occasion I had a three course menu, the main course being chicken with honey thyme sauce, salad and french fries.
    We returned to the scene in July 2009, July 2010, July 2011, July 2012 and again in July 2013, on the last day of the Four Day's Marches and dined with the same friends over and over again (for those of you who've seen the movie, it has become a sort of 'Groundhog Day'-event). In 2013, we had the 4Days Marches Special Menu and paid 25 euro each, but found that the service has diminished. Well never mind, I guess they'll get another chance next year.

    Belvédère: The old city wall tower

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Jul 15, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is housed in the Belvédère, a former Walltower called the Hoendertoren. As such there are huge basement cellars used as gun powder rooms. The present name of the tower originates from the wonderful river view. After the Spanish wars the buiding got a more recreative character, first for the towns magistrates, but in the course of time also for the "common" people. In 1678 the building was completely renovated.

    The outside terrace is a great place to relax with a mighty view over the river.

    Business hours:
    Tu - Sa: Lunch: 12AM - 2.30PM; Dinner: 5PM - 9.30PM

    Mr Jacks: Best value for money

    by Pijlmans Updated May 2, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Italian/Greek restaurant was an extremely pleasant surprise, although we could have known since their motto is "good, cosy and cheap". How many restaurants actually live up to such a motto??

    The prices are VERY reasonable (I would indeed almost say cheap) and the food is VERY good (and a lot!).

    Waiters were fast and friendly. Nice atmosphere.

    I unfortunately was so satisfied that I forgot to take a picture...so I stole a picture of a dish from their website :-)

    Highly recommended!

    If you have a look at their website, note that they also have a restaurant in Utrecht.

    Pannenkoekenboot: Pancake boat

    by Pijlmans Updated May 2, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the pancake boat you can eat "unlimited" pancakes during e.g. a 1 hour trip on the river Waal.

    At the buffet you can get natural, apple or bacon pancakes, to which you can add your topping of choice (e.g. cheese, eggs, sweets etc).

    "Unlimited pancakes" sounds better than it is, since you have to wait for the pancakes to be baked, and in our case the kitchen closed before the end of the trip.

    And the combination of mild sea-sickness, beer and a few pancakes is also not exactly appetite-stimulating :-)

    I could only eat three pancakes and my girlfriend who really loves pancakes managed to eat four of them...

    However, the 1 hour boat-trip is included, although there is not too much to see along this part of the Waal river.

    The hold of the ship is filled with balls, like a swimming pool with water. The kids can play here and after the trip they even let some adults in :-)

    Departure times and prices 2012:
    Wednesday and Saturday: 16.30 to 17.30 and 18.00 to 19.00
    From July 8 to August 20 also on Thursday and Friday.
    Adults € 15,00
    Children (3-12 years) € 10,00

    They also do longer cruises; Check the website for up-to-date information.

    Arsenaal: Flemish food at it's best!

    by Zanoza Written Jul 11, 2011

    Great sphere, service and delicious food! They often serve most delicious French fries ever together with your main dish. Very very good quality food, for reasonable prices. Not only for dining, but also for lunch (they've got amazing sandwiches)

    Favorite Dish: everything, nom nom..
    Antwerps Stoofvlees is rather good (beer based stew), or Vlaamse Reus, or Flemish Waffles.

    Favorite Dish: Ooow if you go here don’t forget to try the sangria!!!

    Fean: Just Down The Road From The Pub!

    by johngayton Written Oct 24, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, it just has to be done, doesn't it? Having had a pleasant evening in de Nieuwe Maan, in which more than a few beers were consumed, the good old kebab shop beckoned. It was on the direct route from the pub to my hotel, it was whatever time in the early hours and whilst some temptations CAN be cast aside, I do find myself often lured by the seductiveness of a decent kebab.

    This is as good as it gets. Friendly serving guy, a couple of hot chillies and though it wasn't quite as greasy as my personal preference it wasn't a bad kebab at all! You can eat in, take away or sit out on the covered little terrace all for the same price.

    I can't remember what it cost but I'm sure it must have been on the inexpensive side.

    Grand Cafe Moenen: If You Just Fancy A Nibble or a Full-blown Repast

    by johngayton Written Oct 24, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The day and a half or so that I spent in Nijmegen I was in more of a grazing mood rather than sitting down to a full-works meal and the "borrolen" here were just the job to soak up the lunchtime beer. The Grand Cafe Moenen is one of the restaurants facing onto the Grote Markt in the centre of the city and whilst styled as a "Grand Cafe" is in fact pretty informal and very reasonably priced.

    The menu is quite extensive covering all the usual bits and bobs with slighty more elaborate fare in the evenings.

    Service was, on a quiet rainy Wednesday, perfectly efficient and friendly and I can imagine this is one of the places to be in the summer when the sun's out.

    Favorite Dish: I only had one the nibbles - the "Thaise garnaaltjes" which were the bought in deep-fried variety but none the worse for that, a tasty selection of nibbly bits with a chilli dip and for less than 4 Euros perfectly up to the task.
