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.

We had dinner here late December and were all looking forward to it in light of the hype we had heard about this restaurant. The initial impression upon entering Beluga is that of a lounge / cocktail bar. The front part of house is a general seating area complete with bar and DJ set-up, which opens via a small partition...

Then we moved to the restaurant and the meal isn't quite what I expected. good ingredients but poor size too strange combinations and sometime tasteless dishes. Pompously coming to the table bagel tree-trolley with realy dry bagel the waiter couldn't explain me why they choose to serve... More

Please do not offer red chocolate hearts to entering guests, skip the sugar in the cucumber ice cream you offer as amuse bouche, completely skip those mega ugly projections of naked women laying among the Brussels sprouts that you show bigger than life size in the bar area, use a tablecloth to hide your hideous plastic dinner tables, get vaguely...
