Great food and nice atmosphere

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... read more

So... foam. It's in and on many of the dishes. In some cases you can't even see the actual food because of the foam. It was fashionable in the noughties but it's such a cliché now. I can't wait for foam to be part of the past, never to return again in food. They could replace some of it at... More

I had been here once 5 years ago and have been raving about it since; when the opportunity came up that it wasn't too much of a detour, I insisted that we stop in Maastricht for a night. This place is amazing. Tell them what you don't like and you will get a fantastic meal with well-considered wine pairings. I... More

If you do not mind that you can not choose your meal but trust the chef to cook something you like, this is the restaurant for you. It is not highly posh but very well taken care of: tables with white linnen. Do not go there if you go dining to impress (although the dinner is impressive I think), do... More

I visited Le Courage for the second time this year for a birthday of two friends and again it did not disappoint. The food is perfectly cooked and the flavours are amazing. Nigel the chef makes the experience very personal and gives just the right amount of attention without feeling over powered. As there is no menu the food that... More

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

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
