    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.

    Address: Grote Markt 36

    Directions: On the market square (triangle!), roughly in the middle of the row of terraced restaurants.

    by egonwegh Updated Jul 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    13 January 2007 : an extraordinary place - a little more expensive than our budget would normally allow, but Jennie had received a voucher for this restaurant as a present.

    Favorite Dish: A four course menu and some 'amuses' in between ; amongst other dishes we had mushroom consommé and cream soup as our entrée, delicious guinea fowl (Dutch: parelhoen) with tagliatelle and bass (Dutch: zeebaars) with risotto for our main course and mango 'sate' and lemon pie for dessert.

    Kandinsky: Some coffee and toasted bread

    by egonwegh Updated Jul 30, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the river front, the Waalkade, in Nijmegen. Excellent view across the river Waal.

    Favorite Dish: Here you can get some coffee/cappuccino or some beer and a quick lunch. Last time we were here, we had some coffee and toasted bread with ham and cheese. Very friendly service.

    The text on the yellow sign in this picture says "bicycles will be removed" ...

    Pizzeria Rotana: Rotana!

    by egonwegh Updated May 15, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pizza restaurant and take away. Definitely not an Italian, but Moroccan or maybe Turkish proprietor. Besides Italian pizzas they also do Greek salads with feta cheese, Dutch chips ("frietje waterfiets") &c. Wednesday and Saturday pizza day, some two dozen pizzas will sell for less than 5 euro apiece. By the way, talk about pieces -- most notable pieces of furniture in this restaurant: huge cigarette vending machine, and a golden clock adorned with Thuluth - or was it Kufic? - script.

    Address: Molenweg 263 Nijmegen

    Directions: It's pizzeria's galore in Nijmegen town centre, but this particular restaurant is to be found in Hees/Heseveld. From town centre follow Tunnelweg - under Nijmegen Central railway station - westward for two kilometers to Molenweg shopping centre.

    Old Cave: Latin Party

    by egonwegh Updated Nov 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Theme party "Havana on the river Waal" with colleagues of the University Library, 9 November 2006 at the Old Cave on the Anthoniusplaats near the river Waal. My boss dressed up as an Argentinian 'gaucho'. I would have preferred spacious rooms and stunning views to this apparently medieval cellar ('Old Cave' is a very apt name!), but I did like the music and the lively atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: Food was okay, Spanish or Mexican 'tapas', e.g. potato salad, Spanish fish plate, olives, spicy meatballs (also calamares and anchovy for 'afficionados')

    Address: St. Anthoniusplaats 13, Nijmegen

    by egonwegh Updated Oct 25, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    23 October 2006: huge restaurant - we'd never been there before. As a matter of fact, the Orient Plaza houses four restaurants, Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Indonesian. We visited the Indonesian restaurant Nonya.

    Favorite Dish: Wok buffet with sate ayam, rendang, ikan bumbu Bali, Foe Yong Hai, nasi goreng, bami goreng, pisang goreng - to name a few. Eat as much as you like for just under 17 euro (2006).

    by sandravdp Written Oct 18, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the market square you can find restaurant 'De Waag'. It has a large outdoor terrace, but also indoor tables. All sorts of food are served and everything sure pleases the stomach very well. Nice fish with a good sauce, good meat, cheese fondue, you name it! They also have lots of options in kinds of beer and wine.

    Favorite Dish: Sun fish with lemon grass and cream sauce. Melts on your tongue.

    by egonwegh Updated Aug 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With Jennie, my mum and brothers, on 30 July 2006, on the occasion of my mother's birthday. I would recommend that you take your pick from the all-in menu. You'll get to choose from ten starters, ten main courses and ten desserts, at an all-inclusive price of 30 euro, with drinks - including red and white wine - for free.

    Favorite Dish: I had "carpaccio van ossenhaas met pijnboompitjes, lamstournedos met honing-tijmsaus en coupe mocca met rumsaus" (translation pending ...). Good food and friendly waiters. Be prepared to wait an awful long time in between courses though, as every course took about one hour, quite uncommon in the Netherlands. A good thing we didn't bring our hyperactive weekend foster child along with us.

    Address: Van Peltlaan 4-8 Nijmegen

    Directions: Along one of the main roads through Nijmegen, St. Annastraat, right opposite the St. Radboud University Medical Centre (Heijendaal)

    Becak: Indonesian restaurant

    by egonwegh Updated Feb 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    29 January 2006. A 'becak' is a 'man-pedaled carriage with passenger's seat facing front', says my source on the internet. A nice specimen can be found in the middle of this restaurant located on the Waalkade. Waitresses wear Indonesian 'sarongs' and the walls are decorated with bamboo and small 'wayang golek' masks. We were here for our anniversary - and also because we're planning a four week holiday to Indonesia later this year. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.

    Favorite Dish: For starters, I had 'pisang goreng', that's baked banana, and Jennie had something spicy with meat. For our main course, Jennie had 'ikan' - fish, in other words - with 'bami goreng' and I had the 'babi kerry' with white rice. We both had fruits and syrup for dessert.

    Becak: Avoid

    by bobbert Written Jan 31, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Supposedly Indonesian, but mostly salty, otherwise tasteless food. Does not seem very fresh either. If you really cannot do without Indonesian food (like me) learn to make it yourself or try take-way from some toko--Rinus is supposed to be good, although I have not been there myself.

    De Plak: Visit Nijmegen Contemporary History, or just enjoy

    by bobbert Written Jan 31, 2006

    Still probably the best 'eetcafe' in town. It is cheap, it is fun, it is typically Nijmeegs and the food is far better than in most places in the budget range.

    Favorite Dish: Not my favorite, but the 'kaasgehakt' is very popular.

    Address: around the corner of Plein 44

    Gandhi: Indian tandoori & curry restaurant

    by egonwegh Updated Dec 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pleasant atmosphere, Indian music, quiet restaurant. Also take away at 15 percent discount. One of the reasons for going to a restaurant was that Jennie passed her exam, and it had to be an Indian restaurant because I had just finished a translation assignment - Dutch into English - that came from an Indian agency ...

    Favorite Dish: We had the "Akbari" three course menu for two persons - small, spicy sausages for starters, chicken and salmon, rice, salad, mushrooms and bread as our main course, and mango ice cream and coffee for dessert.

    Address: Hertogstraat 23, Nijmegen

    Directions: Town centre, within walking distance of the Valkhof Museum and the Kelfkensbos multistorey car park.

  • Odessa: Simple, good food

    by dutchguy001 Written Aug 5, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Odessa is a good, not too expensive restaurant. They have a special menu that changes every now and then. The names on the menu are made up and represent the contents of the food with a funny twist.

    In the summer they have a summer garden where you can sit outside in the sun and enjoy your dinner

    Favorite Dish: The cheese fondue is perfect, but everything ranging from the chicken to the steak is perfect

    Address: St. Anthoniusplaats 15

    Directions: old city centre, from the valkhof museum towards the parking garage Eiermarkt, don't turn left to the parking garage but go straight ahead, after the car stop device in the ground, first street on the right
