We had in june gathering at Beluga restaurant and had opportunity to seat at the chef's table. As we consider us gastronomic tourists we were full of expectations.We were not disapointed. Alreday amuses gave us impression on delicacy and equilibrity of ood that would come. Fine salmon with just gentle tintling sauce of cucumber, chicken breast smoothly seasoned in horse... More

Great experience, fantastic food, relaxed and loungy atmosphere. Drinks before dinner enjoying the sunset with a river view are a fantastic start of the evening and closing it of with coffee/tea and sweets on the terrace again..... Loved every minute of it!

What a delight to eat when you want to be surprised and enjoy great service. Menu from start to finish was great. Great temporary setting and good wines. Don't forget your cc but its worth it.

This restaurant has deliberately tuned down from 3 starred 'top 5' of the country, to just excellent. Formula has indeed improved, nice dishes for 15/25 euro, which is very cheap in this class. But portions are incredibly small.

My partner and I celebrated a birthday with dinner at Beluga; it was a wonderful and memorable evening that we enjoyed very, very much. We had dined at Beluga previously, years ago, before it earned its second star and before the 2013 "update"; we wanted to experience the new approach to fine dining developed by Beluga and we liked it,...

The title says it all really. I was really looking forward to experiencing the "concept" of the DJ, the loud sounds, and all my senses being ignited, unfortunately it was only my taste buds that came away (amazingly) satisfied. Whilst the food was excellent throughout, it was a slight disappointment after building myself up after reading the website and reviews.... More

Firstly to put it into context, it's not our style of restaurant. What they do, they do it well, but I had to review it as it is for us and to help others with similar tastes. It's an auditory/visual feast, but it lacked for us the tactile/gustatory stimulation I would have expected for the package it appeared to be.... More

What makes this different from one star or no star restaurants are the details. Dining here is a feast for the senses, not only for the stomach. The visuals attract you upon entry, although the decor may not be to everyone's taste. The music, again not music to all ears, is piped via Bose speakers. The food satietes the senses... More

I was excited to see my old home town Maastricht after many years and really happy that the city as a whole has developed in charm, sophistication and trend by leaps and bounds. I booked a table at Beluga for lunch. I was told it was one of the top restaurants in Maastricht. The staff are super- friendly, the chef... More

The super experience: Beluga, two star Michelin restaurant. Again, a lot of expectations. We decided for a 6 course surprise menu. Splendid, that speaks for itself. But. Beluga changed the menu last year, from large to smaller. Less amuses, lesser portions. And that is good. You got too much of everything and you had no good feeling. What we did'nt... More
