Good Service, so important!

Café Zuid is a great place for lunch and tapas (I cannot comment on dinner as I have never had dinner here). First of all it is highly efficient with enough personnel, even when the place is crowded. That alone is worth coming here. Secondly, the quality of the food is excellent. Thirdly, this is... read more

The caffe itself is very good,but the best about it is the chill out terrasse by the pond at sunset, if the weather permits... A very relaxing experience...

We went here with friends because they had heard a lot of good things about this place. We had lunch, some sandwiches and an omelette. The cafe is indeed nice, but not more than that. The outdoor area is pretty, but crowded. The waiters were almost constantly ignoring us, no matter how much we tried to attract their attention. It... More

The terrasse of Cafe Zuid is perfect for a lazy, sunny afternoon with view on the park and the Maas. It can be pretty packed so if you want the best deckchair you better be early. The staff is very polite and nice. I regularly visit the terrasse but for the first time I went in and have a bruschetta.... More

This is fantastic for a midday drink and snack. It is on the other side of the river, next to the 1992 Plein, a square famous for the Maastricht Treaty (it was built on the occasion of the signing of the Teaty, the one that introduced the Euro). In the evenings during the summer they also have jazz bands performing.... More

Went here with my mate on Saturday 3rd Oct 2014, it was 26 degrees perfect sunshine. It was busy but another couple were just leaving so we nabbed their seats quick. We sat facing the sun and ordered beers. There was a nice selection of beers, including white beer! We ordered some food, I had the chicken fillet sandwich, and... More

Cafe Zuid is very nicely located with a view at the Maas. The menu is quite simple with very good classics. The saté is hightly recommended.

When the weather permits, sitting outside is very nice and the sandwiches served are just the best in town. A must try.

Good place for studying and when the weather is good try the beautiful terrace just above the park! Serves good coffee, chocolate muffin and soups (really liked the thai one). Haven't tried salads couse I find... More

It was a lovely day, and too beautiful to miss a chance to enjoy the outside, and so we went to Café Zuid, along the river Meuse. At first we had some freshly squeezed orange juice + strawberry/orange juice. Later we decided on some wine and tapas, which was a great choice: a selection of chorizo (?), Italian cheeses, pancetta,... More
