Visited Plaats 1 for dinner with friends. It was a cold evening so we couldn't sit on the beautiful terrace, I guess during summer time it will be great to sit outside. Plaats 1 is located in the heart of old Nijmegen, so it's a really nice walk to get there. The restaurant decoration is mostly white so it's neat... More

We went there as two couples. Staff is very friendly though it took a while until we got menus and could order. Food was okay; for our main courses (burgers, dorade, spring rolls) portions were quite small.

With its shaded garden a few steps away from the historic Grote Markt, this little gem was a delightful discovery. Although it is a full service interior restaurant, the outside tables (in the summer, anyway!) offer the same choice. Light bites to full and highly inventive and delicious sounding mains with a SPECIAL FEATURE of a BRUNCH on the first... More

Our colleagues in Nijmegen booked this restaurant for us for dinner. The restaurant is located in the heart of city, very close to all major attractions in town. It has this surprise dinner, you can tell the restaurant what you don't want to have then the restaurant will give you a surprise dinner. It was a different way to enjoy... More

I ate in several restaurants around Nijmegen and I find Plaats1 the best. They serve high quality food. The taste and presentation are excellent. The staff is friendly and they explain everything in the menu and about the wines. The location is a beautiful historical building in downtown, just behind the busy city centre. If you care about quality, I... More

Came here specifically to try the beers brewed on the premises but decided to eat here as well. I had the Tandoori Grouse, Porterhouse Steak on a hot stone and a cheese board. The food was excellent but as suggested by the title the portions were rather small. Friendly staff.

I had here fish & chips and a fresh tuna fish. Both dishes were amazing. The portions are not very big, but the taste is excellent!

We ordered the Father's Day "barbeque" expecting sort of a mixed grill. We had a group and this seemed convenient but got so much more. There were grilled pieces of protein but we started with a grilled partridge, chopped with a coconut/lemon grass ice cream of sorts on top with green asparagus. On to sea wolf grilled in papillote with... More

They had a nice "surprise menu" with three courses and a dessert. They offered wine pairings with each. You can watch the cooks work
