We tried the special horse meat, zoerwilez. It was sour to me. We ordered also shrimp, which was ok too. As a result, we had an ok food at a nice open area.

The terrace in the park was too crowded and there were too many smokers. A lot of local people though.

Called 'cafe' but it's more of a restaurant on a corner site not that far from the river in the old town of Maastricht. Cafe Sjiek looks more like a traditional bar and dining is informal. Plenty of locals seemed to be eating here, a good sign. In good weather there are also open-air tables across the street under some... More

What a jewel of a find, Meeting up with two Australian friends we wanted to find a typical local restaurant for a meet up on a Saturday early evening. This was very local with a menus to match.

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!!!
