Whenever there is a special occasion we invite our friends to Beluga. We have to drive 1 1/2 hour to get there but is a treat. The food is extraodinary by any standard. We were again surprised with a combination of great tastes and flavors. The 8 course dinner sounds overwhelming but it is even for my wife, who is... More

This restaurant with its well-earned Michelin star appears more like a factory than a fine dining experience. Everything is super efficient, amuse bouche, wine, water and the next course are shuttled to your table at high speed (the water pouring was especially overdone) - lacking the personal attention you would expect to create a likable ambience for a dinner on...

We had great food, one of the best meals ever. It is not even expensive if you consider the food quality and the fact that it has two stars. As an extra we found the waiters hilarious. They moved around in such an entertaining way.

We had lunch, albeit the largest tasting menu, and I understand the evening can be a different scenario. Accept that it is a two Michelin star restaurant and it is a given that the food will be superb. It was. What was so delightful about Beluga is how you instantly relax. The restaurant could be a hotel lobby, or a... More

Birthday dinner at the Beluga, again a great experience. Seasonal cooking with respect of the Beluga's style. Excellent service and taste, our favorite restaurant in Limburg. 175 euro per person apero, wine and coffee is a correct price. Keep going Beluga :)

A wonderful culinary experience that lasts an entire evening. Surprising taste combinations without resorting to molecular fads. Hans van Wolde is doing an excellent job.

The portions are tiny, more like appetizers than real meals. The music is very very loud and if you don't like techno or house music, don't go if the DJ is there! The lights alternate between almost off and way too bright. I have eaten at a LOT of Michelin restaurants and this is my least favourite. My advice, save... More
