We went to Beluga almost one year ago.Everything was just perfect. The food,the people, the location.We just can't understand why they only have 2 stars instead of 3. The best eating experience ever.The only problem what we now have,will we ever enjoy such food ever again?(without going to Maastricht back again) Yes we are spoiled by the experience of eating at Beluga. If you want to de someting go to Maastricht!

This was one of these occasions where I really looked forward going for dinner despite the fact that it was a business dinner. Expectations were high based on all the good things I heard about Beluga. Everything just made me and my 3 guests happy. The chef came to our table, really took his time and he was truly interested. Not one of these standard stories. 8 amuses and the 8 course tasting menu, both food and wine. AMAZING is all I can say about it. Next to the fact that the restaurant is really beautiful one thing really stood out, the young sommelier. There is just one way to describe this young man: passion. This guy could make a poor wine taste like heaven. What a joy to observe this. An overall great experience. Will soon go back!!

I unfortunately never get time to write about all the restaurants we visit, so this one deserves a special note. Despite the trip going to Belgium and Germany only, we made a detour to visit this place. Coming from SA with friends it was important to impress - and it did! Nice setting, professional staff yet casual enough for me, the pre drinks (Champagne - magnum) was served with what was without doubt the best amuse bouches ever.

Chef and host Hans was personal, relaxed and a genuine superstar. Probably the most confident and non-pretentious experienced in a long time. Despite working in the open kitchen he had time to talk and shake hands. We had nothing but smiles and superb help fro. All the staff, all whom adapted easily to us by now rather wined foreigners.

We had the big menu and the wine served was matched well - did miss my range of Brunellos but rest was fairly comprehensive.

As food goes it was in the very top. Adding the ambience makes it worth another visit.

It was a suprice so we were a little underdressed but the owner treated us just the same. We had a table in 'the kitchen' so you could see everything! We think its the best place to sit because the other part of the restaurant is very passionless (like you are sitting in a show window). We had 8 courses and every course was a feast. Also the wines: delicious!!! We like to go again but it is quit expensive so I don't think we will go tomorrow ;-).

Modern restaurant near the river, nicely located, foot bridge over the river to the old town centre. Very imaginative cooking, very tasteful and nicely presented. Perfect service. Not cheap, but very much worth it. Private dining room very nice, with a glass based wine cabinet along one side of the room.
