Where to Eat in Limburg Province: The Best Restaurants and Bars

February 9, 2018 Rebbecca Marino

Getting its name from the medieval Duchy of Limburg (now split among Holland, Belgium and Germany and the birthplace of the infamously pungent Limburger cheese), Limburg is the Netherlands’ southernmost region. Many of the area’s best attractions are concentrated in the capital of Maastricht, but other sights include the 12th-century Valkenburg castle ruins, the 17th-century Eijsden castle, the 20th-century Glaspaleis (built next to a medieval church at Heerlen), and De Meinweg National Park.

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.

A reunion with special friends. Each course floats on air, is fun, made us smile and tantalized taste buds. The wine is perfectly matched with the cuisine, while at the same time being tailored to individual choice. The atmosphere is discreet and private while attentive and personal. An incredible team creating a memorable, local food and wine experience. I hope to have the opportunity to visit again soon.

This restaurant is located in a side street of the central market place. But boy, is this a place to take a short stroll to. First of all, the reception. Very hearthy and open. Then, of course, there's the gargantuan number of whisk(e)ys on offer,...MoreThank you so much for your fantastic review Pascal!

Restaurant de Leuf

Reviewed By LeoRaeves - Antwerp, Belgium

As far as the food is concerned, you just can't go wrong here... every bite you take releases a taste explosion on your taste buds. For the food itself I would have rated this review with 6 stars if I could, unfortunately "attitude" gave me a bad aftertaste.
The lady who owns the place seems to think that part of her patrons are total idiots. For this occasion we had a Groupon package that included the meal and a night in a Junior SUITE (yes the voucher explicitly mentioned SUITE). However, when we arrived at the hotel in question (Van der Valk Heerlen), this turned out to be a so called Junior Room... which is smaller than their standard rooms.
Upon arrival I told the owner that I didn't appreciate that, especially since in the e-mails leading to the reservation there always had been a reference to a JR Suite. At first she tried to convince me that in fact a Junior Room is the same as a Junior Suite, since I have some experience with the hospitality industry I let her understand that I'm not the person who can be fooled by such baloney. Then her reaction was: oh well you get spend the night in a nice room with a rain shower, that's a good week-end anyway! That attitude is insulting and terribly arrogant, I would expect more from a Michelin rated restaurant owner.
Lady, take a lesson in humility... patrons pay your bills.

Restaurant Da Vinci

Reviewed By Catharina50 - Eindhoven, The Netherlands

We visited Da Vinci already several times over more than 20 years, and our most recent visit dated from 8 years ago. Based upon our earlier experiences and the two Michelin star rating, our expectations for lunch were high. But we also visited many top restaurants in the Netherlands and abroad in the intermediate years, so our taste has further developed. The welcoming was nice and we started with champaign in the ground floor lounge area, with distant river views. Several amuses/appetizers were served. We noted that the stylish interior had not been changed since at least 15 years. The same went for the dishes, decoration, etc. And although we don't expect interiors to change frequently, it suddenly looked dull to us. We went downstairs for the restaurant area, with no external views. But our table had kitchen view: always exciting! We noted the young team hard and very disciplined at work, sometimes directed by the chef. Our six course lunch consisted of lovely dishes, of course, but without ever becoming very memorable. No excitement, new taste combinations, new structures at all. Best dish was a small cup of broccoli soup with a foam of piccalilly. We had expensive ingredients in extremely small portions, like one sliced coquille being the core of the dish, with many other ingredients aside lacking unity. The accompanying wines were also served in small protions, at one moment we even thought the sommelier misunderstood us for having ordered a so called Bob-arrangement. Service was kind and efficient, but we expected more. The young sommelier talked so fast and articulated so poor that we couldn't understand him in many cases. During previous visits chef Margot showed up at the tables, but not this time. Host Petro didn't make much of a conversation either today. We concluded that Da Vince is a very good restaurant, but it doesn't surprise nor excite us anymore. And than the bill feels as too high.

No pictures or words can do justice to the food there! It was outstanding. Best birthday present ever!
We took the Tasting menu with 8 courses. I will never forget this amazing experience! Every course we were served was different and filled with different textures and food combinations that you wouldn't normally think of. There, food is art and it is definately deserving of the Michelin star! My first time in this kind of restaurant and I'm happy it was this amazing! My tastebuds have never been happier!
The Rosé veal tenderloin and cheek was by far my favourite alsoThe Boeuf La Roche! As for dessert the ONE's 70% chocolate..amazing!
The staff also deserved a shout out! Very nice and good people! We were served in a good tempo. A kind hostess with perfect English! Had pleasure to eat there! Thank you!
