Every time I go to Nijmegen, I always make sure to go De Bok for dinner and drinks. The atmosphere is excellent, the food is great and the service is impeccable.

My favorite restaurant yet in Nijmegen. Always make a point of going there to get the rib-eye and a nice bottle of Salentein Malbec, it's a combination that can't go wrong. The interior is really cozy and the staff really attentive and nice.

Brilliant food and atmosphere, prices very reasonable and staff very friendly. Recommended for people who like meat, not sure vegetarians would be so keen

We sat up front near the window which gives you a very lovely view of the street and passerby's. The staff was absolutely top notch. Very friendly and cordial. Couldn't be more helpful as well. I was genuinely pleased with the whole staff experience. The food itself was stunning, specifically the meat. We were 4 people so we made a... More

Dark brown old fashioned bistro feeling for perfect, and I mean Per-fect meat. Although you could choose fish (salmon, trout) as well.

Sometimes one wonders if a TripAdvisor recommendation does increase the prices. Bistro The Bok might be such a case. We had a nicely prepared meal, decent bistro style, but at maybe a 10% higher cost than elsewhere. So we take up the challenge to see if next time in Nijmegen we can beat "The Bok". When eating outside on the... More

Went to De Bok for the first time, it was great! The atmosphere is laid back, nice waitors and good food. I enjoyed an entree of coquilles with salad. Don't forget the bread basket with three sauces (real deal garlic sauce). The salad was very fresh, in lots of restaurants this is served as a decoration which is not supposed... More

This place is popular and has been for a long time. I went there with full expectations, but already knew after coming in that this place wasn't for me. The Tournedos (the owner bought the restaurant for that reason specifically) was in fact amazing. However, the new beer menu mentions autumn beers in spring, you get no privacy, you can... More

This location was suggested by our host. From the outside, it looks like a hole in the wall restraunt. But once you walk inside, it doesnt appear to be much larger. There are maybe 15-20 tables and a few stools at the bar. Don't let the small appearance sway your decision to visit. As soon as you walk in, you... More
