Though not quite your intimate setting, the restaurant offers good quality and we were not hurried up by the staff. A very enjoyable place for dinner, if weather permist on their Terrace which offers a splendid view. Suggestion, in case you like white wine: take the Gerardushoeve house wine (Johanniter), it's fairly good!!

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.

The closing night of our weekend away in the province of Limburg we had dinner in the Gezellerie Bel Air in Gulpen. Located on the center square we entered the restaurant on a Monday evening but there were quite some eaters already and we (party of 5) were seated on the first floor at the window where we could overlook the nicely lit square. They had some Monday/Tuesday specials where a free bottle of house wine was given away with every two 3- or 4-course dinners. However they were quite flexible in this as when one wanted a better wine than the house wine the price of the housewine was deducted. We had different dishes and the food was really very good. The Seating was cosy, the servants were nice and not pushy and we really felt well cared after by the staff. So if you want to have a good meal and escape the massality of Maastricht or Valkenburg this restaurant is a very good alternative choice. Free parking in the street and only a very short walk. Well done.

The Geulhof is situated in a pleasant location for a Summer drink and perhaps a Sandwich on the Terrace. On this occasion we opted to eat dinner in the restaurant. We found the food below average with cheap quality meats. Good if you're looking for volume at relatively cheap prices. To be avoided if you are looking for any sort of quality!

Was here with wife and two small kids. Lunch food was typical Dutch sandwiches but still with a local touch. Super friendly staff. Nice old place that looked like a kitsch museum but with also with nice outside terraces. Kids loved it. Quality vs price is a very good place!

For us always a place to come back, sometimes just to drink something and enjoy the view sometimes for diner or lunch.
The food is typically "Limburgs" with an international touch. The food is great and the staff friendly. A nice place to start & end your walkings in the forrest.

While touring in the Limburg area we had a lovely traditional Dutch meal in the Vijlerhof. The food was excellent, tasty & delicious. We got very good value for really tasty good food.The staff were on hand all the time & were friendly & efficient. This restaurant seems to be very popular & has a lot of regulars, which is not surprising. We would definitely have returned again had we had the time but had to be on our way. However, we would return again if we had the opportunity.

Very friendly multilingual staff, nice dining room, beautiful location but I'd recommend using GPS to get there. The kitchen offers quite traditional food, but is is well prepared and presented. I'd hope they would continue innovating, and I'll certainly return.

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.

This authentic tavern in the small village of Eys is a (not so hidden) gem! It's full of locals enjoying drinks, food, the fire in winter and the typical hospitality of the Limburg region. The kitchen serves all kinds of local specialties, like 'vlaai', a kind of fruit pie. In summer it has a wonderful Terrace. It's an excellent starting point for hikes in the area, ranging from 2 to 5 hours. Route descriptions are available against €0,20 fee and have been excellently described, including equally nice stops along the way for food and drinks (see: 't Pintje in Mechelen). In the weekend dinner reservation is recommended. Parking is available in the direct neighbourhood.
