I dined here with a colleague while on business. The outdoor setting is lovely! The service was very efficient and meal was excellent. I ordered the redfish and it was delicious. We split the citrus dessert and it was also very good. I definitely recommend this place!

Excellent peaceful venue linked to a small castle and just 2 kilometers nearby Maastricht centre. Heading the rocks and (former) Enci premises, behind the tries in a kind of 'forgotten corner', Sofa is prepared to welcome you in a superb atmosphere. Snorring boats passing on the river Maas contribute to a lovely mixture of relaxing ingredients. Start of spring season,... More

Had dinner here and it was delicious. We had the 3 course meal, tuna, veal and dessert. Couldn't fault it, the staff (our waiter especially) was amazing and looked after us. Our daughter ate a whole bowl of pasta, loved it. A bit on the expensive side but it is fine dinning. Would go back

We re-visited the restaurant as a couple and were not disappointed. We both ordered different a-la-carte dishes which were tasty and cooked to perfection. Lovely setting, friendly atmosphere, good service, we will be back.

This place is quite pricey, but the food was very tasty and interesting! A classy restaurant with limited choices but the weekend menu was amazing!

The restaurant was recommended and expectations were high. We had a table on a raised terrace in a farmer's yard outside Maastricht near the Maas river -- the river is not in view. Pleasant service but if it were more professional it would meet expectations. The young boy and girl couldn't answer questions about the menu and had to revert... More

A la carte is very expensive for what it is worth. The menu choice is limited however, the lamb on the menu was unavailable. Filet steak was full of tendons. A positive point is the stunning location although the outdoor chairs are very uncomfortable, you need to take the cushions from the benches. The service was average and the waitresses... More

We're looking for a place to eat outside the city center of Maastricht. Just a 10 minutes ride, near a marina and a castle this restaurant is located. The atmosphere is relaxed, the waitresses very kind. But most of all, the food was good. I had the daily menu for just over 30 Euro.

We had an outstanding meal at this fine restaurant. To start with we had a seafood salad, beef carpaccio, and asparagus soup. All three were delicious. For our main course we all order the veal entree. No one was disappointed. Our server/ sommelier was wonderful at helping us pair wine with our meal. He was prefect only showing up at... More
