Once in a lifetime experience

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

As a special occasion we decided to celebrate our birthdays with a group of >20 friends. What a night we had. A welcome in the foyer with a gin-tonic, followed by some special 'cherry' bites before we went down to the stylish private dining room. Seated on 4 tables we had 6 beautiful prepared courses (langoustine, filet americain, etc...) which... More

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!
