My husband and I had a terrific experience at De Bok. The staff was terrific and the food was awesome. We felt so welcomed as walk-ins and were made to feel right at home. I would definitely return and recommend to all.

Had a great evening in de Bok. Nice service, cozy atmosphere and good food. Would come here again when in Nijmegen. Not cheap but not expensive, normal main course for 15-25 euro.
