This was our second time in La Botega, which is in close proximity to the main shopping centre of Maastricht. Very good selections of tapas - including meat and fish based. Our favourite are the Calamares a la plancha, gambas croquettes, aubergines+honey. Count 20 euros per heard with drinks which is pretty reasonable.

I tried a number of tapas in La Bodega - out of the five dishes I tried three were too salty, which absolutely ruined the flavor of the dishes! Of those which I tried, there's only one I can really recommend: the croquetas de chorizo y queso manchego. The dishes I can't recommend at all: Lubina marinada con salsa de... More

Nice Italian restaurants with smaller plates and more courses. Different to a normal menu, but somewhat mainstream the way it's done. Good food though and nice atmosphere.

Mind you I live out of town but when back I like to frequent La Bodega. The place always delivers nice small bites from their list (though might use a small refreshment). The staff and especially the owner Marco is always friendly. Only pity is that they ditched Torres as wine supplier but for the rest, a great place to... More

During on of the busiest days in Maastricht, the saturday before Christmas we did have tapas dinner here and enjoyed it. Quality of thenfood was absolutely good, but the staff was outstanding and that is also a part of the experience. Thanks

Charming place and vibe. Very friendly staff that works hard and fast to give you and tidy up the empty tapa plates. Big choice of tapas. Not the best tapas we have eaten but anyway a high quality. Freshness is the most important and it was. Of course a big amount of people and noise... if you don't mind it's... More

While is a very popular spot and always quite busy, the quality of the food was average. The tortilla was very dry and tasteless, that fried calamari where border line to awful. The highlight was the montadito of solomillo which was pretty decent. Bottomline you definitely can find better places to eat on Maastricht, NO WAY this is within the... More

This really is one of the best tapas restaurants in the country. It's location is great, in the summer you can sit outside if you're lucky. The design inside looks authentic, staff is friendly. But most important the food is authentic and tastes great! Great tapas, freshly made which means a dish could be sold out during the evening. Next... More

Very nice restaurant with very Spanish atmosphere. You can go there for typical meals (rations) or for tapas experience. Food is very good as is the wine. Really had Spain vibe in there.

A bit touristy, but tapas are good quality. Nice choice considering alternatives in the area. I would suggest the calamari and king prawns.

Thank GokhanHT
