There were two of us, but we could easily have been four: the schnitzel champignons was huge and there were at least four side dishes! The mosselen were really tasty and copious. Best of all, the staff was really nice and so welcoming! We ate inside, where it was warm & comfy, but you can face the climate & eat... More

This place had a nice vibe to it. We ended up looking for somewhere to eat on the ped zone with lots of different restaurants and cafes, but this one had a menu that was original, in comparison to the others we checked out. The ambiance was quiet and charming with some people at the outside tables but for us... More

The restaurant is located on the main street of the touristic city of Valkenburg a/d Geul. It's got a terra for dining outside and a large inside dining area that can host larger parties. The food is excellent and all fresh made, which take time, so don't go here for a quick bite. Dishes are of a decent to large... More

Cracking place with a nice quiet beer garden out back by the small river. Good beer, friendly staff and tasty snacks. You can also sit out front on the square and watch the world go by. Only had a snack so can't comment on the quality of the meals but the people who did seemed pleased with the food.

We decided to have dinner in this restaurant since the Christmas parade passes just in front of it. We arrived well in advance and we managed to get a good table. We ordered some drinks and waited for the parade to start. However, people (non customers) started gathering exactly next to our table so that they can watch the parade... More

We have visited Valkenburg many times for the Christmas Market and always have at least one meal in this Restaurant. The standard has remained throughout each visit. It is very popular with locals which is always a good sign. The food is excellent with a very good menu - pork dishes being particularly good. The staff are attentive and friendly.... More

Set in the center of Valkenburg, this restaurant seems extremely popular. Even with a reservation we had to wait for about half an hour at the bar for our table. There you can try one of their beers from the beer menu or maybe a Snow-white, a mix of light beer and sprite. Very refreshing. The menu is a traditional... More
