Excellent service and food

Flexibility in menu to cater to different individuals in the group. The ambience was fantastic and enjoyable. Time flew by really fast in here! Prices are slightly higher, but lunch value is unbeatable! Recommended!

A friend and I took the train from Amsterdam to see Maastricht over the day. We managed to make a lunch reservation at Beluga which is a nice walk away from the train station. We both opted for the four course lunch option, and my friend who is a vegetarian had no problem getting a tailored arrangement. The food was... More

Unfortunately there was was no availability for dinner but we could have a table for lunch on Saturday. As from the moment we entered the restaurant it was just great!... More

I've been here twice. First time was blown away, and couldn't shut up about this place to friends and colleagues. Second time was average, however, when the food was only OK. Its a great restaurant, but there are other places in Maastricht that are just as good and better value.

For us it is/was; a once in a lifetime experience...normally Michelin star restaurants are not in our budget, but this was for a special occasion. The staff made us feel more than welcome and the food was...WOW, AMAZING...explosions in your mouth and treasuses on the plate!

We spontaneously went on a Wednesday night and were delighted to be able to make a reservation. We were greeted with a lovely heart shaped sweet and were then sat in the lounge for an aperitif and the amuses. We had a six course surprise menu. All courses were lovely. But we have both eaten better. All in all lovely... More

Once in a while we like to endure ourselves and eat out real chique. But the visit to Beluga was not the experience I hoped it to be. For one it was very noisy in the restaurant, added to that there was some "hip" music from which only the boom-tsjak was audible. A computer beamer projected patterns on a wall,... More

We loved the attention to detail and the combination of traditional French preparations with molecular gastronomy. The home-brewed beer was quite nice as well. The apps and mains were quite small - with names like "salmon dragged through Asia" - but the dessert was too big to even finish half of! This was a nice restaurant to go to -... More

I've been here with my girlfriend for a dinner and the experience worthed the bill . Good food and nice wine . The place is modern and nice even if i do not love the internal design. I think in italy the quality for 2 michelin stars is a bit higher but overall a very good restaurant.

This was definitely one of the best meals i've ever had. The Ambiance is amazing the location stunning. Service Friendly and professional. A must for a foodie when you're visiting the lovely city of Maastricht. We had a tasting menu and where blown away by almost everything. The chef is really hospitable, and talented. We can't wait for our next... More
