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

I went to Beluga for lunch with a close friend (also a foodie) last week for the very first time. Dishes were beautiful and delicious as expected from a 2 Michelin starred restaurant like this, albeit not very memorable. Service was fast, no long wait, though service felt a bit forced and unnatural. Pricewise, I found it quite fair, would... More

First of all dining at Beluga in any case will be an experience to remember. The location is great, and the design of the place is cool. Staff is very friendly, as you could expect.The concept changed recently; the 2 stars were retained but the atmosphere is more trendy now. And that includes lounge/club music. I liked it in the...

We have been regulars at Beluga since 2004 and became more than regulars upon moving nearby in 2009. Moving back in 2013 we tried hard to find restaurants at this level near our new home in the north. We have not succeeded in that but regularly eat out abroad at two or three star level. When we learned about Beluga’s... More

It's not "location, location, location"... it "location, great food and superb service" that distinguishes Beluga from the rest. The lucnh menu with wine pairing is one of the best deals you can get in the country - dont miss it! But be sure to make a reservation and be ready to sit down for a while.
