Nice vibe and good food

I have been here three times now and I'm sure I will come back. When you arrive you will probably have to wait before a table is available. Which isn't a bad thing.

The spot is centrally located, the decoration is very beautiful and the outside area also excellent. However the food is nothing special and definitely overpriced. Moreover the place lacks organisation. We were told that we had to wait at least for one hour and a half to be seated. Then when another from our friends asked, he was told 45... More

In the summermonths Cafe Sjiek has a fantastic al fresco restaurant under lush large trees. More seats available so less chance for a full house as the indoor restaurant. Usually a wait but a nice lounge area for waiting where they serve drinks and, if desired, a first course. Service is informal, quick and friendy. Quality is good and price-value... More

Great food, efficient and friendly service. This Cafe has a great outdoor area. No bookings taken but a well set waiting area to enjoy a pre-dinner drink until a table becomes available.

Fantastic confit de canard, definitely a recommendation. Democratic prices for the delivered quality. Both wine and food are honestly priced. Original desert of ginger and sour cream. Friendly service.

Since my boss, a true Limburger, heard that I was going to Maastricht, he recommended dead on the Zoervleis (Zuurvlees, Sour Meat) from Cafe Sjiek. This is (horse) meat, cured in vinegar and then stewed with a syrup like sauce, creating a sweet and sour combination. And as it turned out, Cafe Sjiek produced the best zuurvlees and we have...

A very popular place between the locals. A crowdy and warm atmosphere place, with some large tables which you share with others and give you a chance to meet other people during dinner. Food is tasty, and service is friendly although little bit slowly. Also love their logo on the entrance door, wine glasses and other places. Been their several... More

Highly recommend this place. You'll need a bit of patience getting a seat most times, but once you're in, you're in to win. Great food, wine and service in a lovely, authentic atmosphere.
