Totally loved this concept of no menu's, you just choose between 3, 4 or 5 course menu and mention if you of anyone of your party has any foodallergies... Perfect! Very small place, we were with 7 and we made a reservation before (for dinner). Without one, i don't think you would get in. Delicious food, we went for the... More

This restaurant is located on the opposite side of the river from the town centre very close to the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The area has a good selection of restaurants and bars. The distinctive thing about this restaurant, apart from an English chef ,is that there is no menu. We opted for a four course tasting menu of smaller plates... More

Le Courage is always a pleasure to visit. The owner and chef Nigel, has established himself well in Maastricht. It's one of the places we like to return to a few times each year with friends. It's unique in that there is no menu. You just choose fish, meat or vegetarian or a mix for starter and mains. This time... More

This restaurant has a 'no menu' service. Diners are asked what they would prefer not to eat and then a menu of anywhere from 3 to 8 courses is created for them. At first glance you might think this is restrictive but the food was wonderful and the element of surprise replaced that feeling of 'wish I'd had the duck..'.etc...... More

Great food served in a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. We were served a beautiful 6 course meal. Every dish had its own unique flavour and taste combination.

It has been over 8 years since we first visited Le Courage and all these years later it remains one of our favourite restaurants and has never disappointed. The restaurant's "surprise menu" concept is exciting. Last evening we enjoyed 6 courses for exceptional value for money: a delicate amuse bouche, beautifully ceviched dorade with a salmon terrine, meaty hallibut with... More

We went here for dinner with friends and chose the tasting menu. The food is delicious and suggested wines an opporunity for us to taste outside our comfort zone. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the team were attentive. The only disappointed is that we did not see much evidence of the food sourced from 'local markets', which to... More

I reserved a table for 12 persons and I told to everybody that this restaurant don't have a menu! and then everybody was so exited, what we can eat tonight... as some people have doubts about surprizes, but this surprize 3-course dinner was really really delicious. I am sure that we all will remember this dinner for years!

We had a romantic evening and enjoyed our 3-course meal at Le Courage as well as the coffee. We knew about the concept, as the restaurant was recommended by a friend. You get no menu, as the chef cooks according to the ingredients he get on the market the same day. It's more like a surprise type of courses but... More

Ee had a very good 4 course meal. The amuse bouche was gorgeous, fish course fine but uninspiring, Guinea fowl delicious and a truly excellent cheese board. I really liked the staff, attentive and genuinely interested in the food, and recommended an excellent Pinot Noir to match our dinner. I regarded the bill as very fair. Overall I really liked...
