Nice place with outdoor seats. There is lots of staff and they are friendly but are too too slow, have to be very patient, even when you want to pay you’ll have to remind them few times and maybe is a good idea before you seat to ask what kind of credit cards are acceptable, the service when I was...

Seems like a place where locals go. Great atmosphere and service. Small and a bit of a wait to get a table. Most grab a drink and don't mind waiting and mingling. Food is well prepared although I wouldn't say it was extraordinary for European standards. Our table was right next to the kitchen so I was looking into the... More

We arrived before 6pm on a Saturday evening and were fortunate to get a table in the outdoor courtyard which I imagine is only available in summer. People arriving later had to wait at least an hour as they do not take reservations. Service was a bit hit and miss. When you got it, it was good, but when we... More

We arrived in Maastricht late and we chose a local style cafe-restaurant to have dinner. We had excellent meat dishes of local style in a very stylish and friendly environment, located in a cozy neighborhood in downtown Maastricht. Truly suggested!!!

For local cuisine I had the meat stew Zoerwleis with fries and wooo it was so good! great wines aswell. you want to come... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. No reservations in this popular spot, but well worth the wait if no seats available. We ate at the bar. Very casual with friendly accommodating staff. Food was excellent local regional Limburg-fare. Great location. Can't recommend highly enough.

If you go to Cafe Sjiek you will be guaranteed an atmospheric, wonderful gastronomic experience; It's welcoming, nicely decorated, warm, friendly and the food is just fantastic. The menu has seasonal dishes, great steaks and local famous Limburg specialities. The main thing about this restaurant that you might not realise is that it is the place in Maastricht to go... More

The food here is good, but I think the atmosphere really makes it. It's my favorite restaurant in Maastricht after spending a total of ~20 days in the village on business. you may need to share a "family" table with others, but it's still comfortable. I've tried the spring asparagus plate with potatoes and ham, as well as the zourvleis.... More

This is what a cafe/restaurant should be. Atmosphere, great wines and delicious food. The waiter leaves a wonderful bottle of Casale Vecchio on the table "to study the wine". No charge for the extra glass you drink as "you give and you take". Yet the bill is settled to the satisfaction of both. Experience hospitality and visit Sjiek. Don't bother... More

The atmosphere is very "welcoming", the food is delicious and the staff is very friendly. Last time I went there I had pork and it was very good - it reminded my grandmother's food! If you have a chance, don't miss it.
