I was walking around the back of the Grote Markt and saw this interesting building. I noticed a waitress outside tidying a table and asked if it was ok to sit inside, she smiled and said that it was. Her politeness definitely swayed my decision...More

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...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...More

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...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

Plaats1, housed in monumental Commanderie van St. Jan, is a modern restaurant serving traditional cuisine and seasonal dishes. Plaats1 serves sophisticated and creative dishes combined with characteristic wines and locally brewed beers from our cellars. In the daytime surprising lunch dishes and homemade apple pie are served from an open kitchen. Weather permitting, our well-shaded terrace in Franseplaats, right outside the hustle and bustle of the town centre, is a nice place to be.
