Top 10 restaurants in Maastricht, The Netherlands

July 31, 2017 Rebbecca Marino

Touching Belgium on its west and just a few miles from Germany to the east, Maastricht is the capital of Holland’s southernmost region, Limburg. A town rich in history and culture, Maastricht boasts two wonderful town squares: Vrijthof, with Sint-Servaas Church, Sint-Jan's Cathedral and many bars, cafes and restaurants; and Markt, home to the town hall and, on Wednesday and Friday mornings, a fantastic vendor market. The city’s Vestigingswerken, or old town fortifications, are another big draw.

My husband and I had our 15 year anniversary at this restaurant. But first we were invited for a glass of champagne in the caves. The cave was very nicely decorated and there were little candles burning. At the restaurant we had this very nice...MoreBeste Yvonne C.

Ristorante Mediterraneo

Reviewed By Dorrith Z - Helvoirt, The Netherlands

It is always a great pleasure to have dinner at Ristorante Mediterraneo ( written with double r). The welcoming is always warm and sincere. Staff is very friendly, hospitable professional (many years of experience) and atttentive. The menu list changes regurlarly and all dishes are very tasty, cooked with love. This time we had Vitello tonato, risotto with truffles, Branzini and cheese. You really do need to reserve a table, because it's always crowded, also on weekdays. Next time we are in Maastricht we will have dinner again in the Meditarreneo

Reviewed By luxbrain

This one was a little bit of a mixed bag, the interior was cozy but the AC was too cold for my taste (we were sitting upstairs. Downstairs seemed considerably warmer); service was extremely friendly and professional, but it took ages for the different dishes to arrive; the food was ok and well-presented, but all in all not very exciting (except for the dessert which was quite creative); the wine pairing was ok but the wines were very young and not extremely developed - we expected more, given the price; they might have had a bad night, but I would not return to see if this really was the case.

Cafe De Zwaan

Cafe de Zwaan is since 1901 a household name on the market square of Maastricht. A lively cafe with excellent regional cuisine. We also have a nice Etage overlooking the market square and old City Hall for private dinners with groups. In summer, enjoy a drink and meal on our cozy and spacious Terrace. We also have live music on a regular basis. Special eyecatcher is our walk-in fridge with more than 200 specialty craft beers. Walk in and choose a special beer or get advice from our beer sommeliers. We have good contacts with craft beer brewers so we always have limited editions and other very special beers. Our kitchen staff also cooks some of our dishes with craft beer, our so-called "beer cuisine". Tasty and original dishes with a craft beer twist. Everything made fresh every day. See you soon at De Zwaan

In the center of Maastricht, this cafe-restaurant offers some really nice plates. Friendly staff can help you to order (the menu is in several languages but you have to ask for this). There are some tables inside but also outside where you can sit even during cold weather using blankets ! Prices are affordable.

Reviewed By jeroen727 - Maastricht, The Netherlands

Nice place and nice atmosphere both inside and in the outside Terrace. Be sure to try one the cakes that they serve along with tea/ice tea. However, staff can be extremely rude even from the moment you enter (they told us that we cannot sit at a table because we were 4 and that table was for 3 and another time we went to the Terrace and they complaint that we should let them know first - both times it was not what they asked, but their attitude)

Great bar with a great atmosphere. Peter himself offers a warm and friendly welcome at any time.
Good food and good prices make it a top place to visit and would recommend for a pint or a longer stay.
Try to take in quiz night but only if you can get there early as it is very busy that night!

Rantree

Reviewed By MGreven - Maastricht, The Netherlands

Entering the restaurant, we already had a very positive impression on the decoration as it was modern, clean, but with cool details. It expressed quality.
This expression of quality was kept up for the full evening. The amuses and specialty cocktail drink were delicious and surprising. The service was perfect - the sommelier explained the great wines with a lot of energy and enthusiasm, whereas the rest of the staff was more calm but friendly. Finally, the food was heaven. From the first until the last course it was an explosion of flavors. We have been to some Michelin restaurants and the quality of Rantree's food could definitely keep up with this.
Overall a great experience and if you like fine dining, you have to try it when you're in Maastricht!
