On our way to Belgium we stopped over in Maastricht for lunch. It was no coincidence; we had booked the table in advance. Having lunch in a place like this is an experience. Already at the entrance the lady made us feel welcome and we were brought to our table, in the middle of the restaurant. More people were already... More

Our previous, and first, visit to Beluga took place several years ago when the restaurant had just one star. Since then the formal approach has given way to a whole new concept which has resulted in what is probably quite unique among two star restaurants - a relaxed, casual presentation suitable for all types of customer. Another reviewer here has... More

four of us went for the lunch menu including the wine that went with the courses. Every course from starter to dessert is a fantastic ride through all the flavors and the wines are well chosen and presented with the best of information. From the entourage to the tables and seats its all there to make it a wonderfull experience.... More

Six of us, all loving food and wine, wanted to go here for a while. Weekend picked, hotel booked and restaurant reserved. You are welcomed in the lounge. The owner will come and say hello. Drinks are served and then you enter the restaurant which is decorated very stylish. Food, wines and service were all great. Relaxed atmosphere even though... More

A three star Michelin Restaurant with a very modern and stylish ambiance. Service is excellent and never over the top or intimidating. The food is, as can be expected, incredible but also very innovative, without going into extremes. We had the 8 course dinner plus all the extra's. Don't be afraid that it is too much because even my wife,... More

After many many trials I finally made it into the Beluga. Big dinner with some key Mercedes people so it had to be nice and good and we were in for a treat. Food was just delicious, refined and surprising. Service worth the stars, food too obviously. Will definitely go back!!!!

Beluga is a great place. We dined with a large group in the downstairs separate dining room. Service was great and so were the wines. It can be tough to accomodate a rowdy group, but Beluga handled us well.

Having chosen the 6 course taster menu, we didn't realise how much of a treat we would be in for. Each dish surprised and was much enjoyed. Although the signature starter hit me dish is out of this world tasty and well deserved of its place in the chefs repertoire each dish was so well thought out that they encouraged... More
