We re-visited the restaurant as a couple and were not disappointed. We both ordered different a-la-carte dishes which were tasty and cooked to perfection. Lovely setting, friendly atmosphere, good service, we will be back.

This place is quite pricey, but the food was very tasty and interesting! A classy restaurant with limited choices but the weekend menu was amazing!

The restaurant was recommended and expectations were high. We had a table on a raised terrace in a farmer's yard outside Maastricht near the Maas river -- the river is not in view. Pleasant service but if it were more professional it would meet expectations. The young boy and girl couldn't answer questions about the menu and had to revert... More

A la carte is very expensive for what it is worth. The menu choice is limited however, the lamb on the menu was unavailable. Filet steak was full of tendons. A positive point is the stunning location although the outdoor chairs are very uncomfortable, you need to take the cushions from the benches. The service was average and the waitresses... More

We're looking for a place to eat outside the city center of Maastricht. Just a 10 minutes ride, near a marina and a castle this restaurant is located. The atmosphere is relaxed, the waitresses very kind. But most of all, the food was good. I had the daily menu for just over 30 Euro.

We had an outstanding meal at this fine restaurant. To start with we had a seafood salad, beef carpaccio, and asparagus soup. All three were delicious. For our main course we all order the veal entree. No one was disappointed. Our server/ sommelier was wonderful at helping us pair wine with our meal. He was prefect only showing up at... More

I was there with a larger group and had no chance to take a look at the regular menu. Our preset menu was good but not great. Friendly service.

We had dinner, without reservation in this excellent restaurant. It was late October and I can imagine that you need to make reservations in the summmer period. Service was very friendly and food excellent. My wife had "Green Egg" chicken with truffels and I went for a piece of veal, both were really good.

We were staying on our boat in the adjacent marina -- which by the way has wonderful facilities -- and this restaurant is very conveniently located next door. This was our third attempt to stop by for a meal -- no reservations, no seating! It is incredibly busy on summer weekends, and often booked out for private functions.....so be warned... More
