These are a few of our favorite restaurants in the Maastricht city centre:
Local tip: Café Sjiek serves 'grandmothers' dishes from the region : sour meat, poultry, black pudding and sauerkraut.
Surprising tip: As its name reveals Witloof (chicory) is all about Belgian food. It combines 3 different interiors typical of Belgian eateries. It offers a complete concept from the look and feel of the interior, to the crockery and accessories.
Trendy Tip: At Eetcafé Ceramique located in the Rechtstraat, the central theme is old fashioned coziness: eating together. Enjoy their local Limburg specialties like a traditional Maastricht rabbit.
