Brasserie Grand Café Amadeus offers delicious local dishes in Maastricht

Zoervleis, a typical Mestreech dish, can be enjoyed at Brasserie Grand Café Amadeus

A new discovery for culinary pleasure oftentimes feels extra special when it has been detected, quite by happenstance, tucked quietly up an unobtrusive ginnel or bye way.

Such is the case with Brasserie Grand Café Amadeus, nestling, to one’s astonished acquisition of the intelligence, on Amadeus-plein. Excepting the fact that the knavish proprietors have fancied this geographic tag for themselves, the true domiciliary identity being Dominikanerplein, leading, quite naturally, from Dominikanerstraat.

Quite apart from its attractively quaint facade, bedecked with glorious floral embellishments, the ancient-looking eatery is exquisitely placed next to the Dominicanenkerk, now wonderfully, if a trifle blasphemously, the home of a high end bookstore.

Ensconced with a couple of Bavaria beers, it is time to peruse the stylish menu. Artful dishes and elegantly presented platters are the order of the day here, and Amadeus is noteworthy for being one of the few city centre establishments in Maastricht to offer a traditional Mestreech dish, the zoervleis, which we sampled with relish.

At prices reflecting those of its competitors, this delightful restaurant manages to cut its own dash, combining inventive cuisine with slick, affable service.

If you’re looking for something a little off the beaten track, festooned with a generous slice of local tradition, then repair here with all urgency – you will not suffer disappointment, we assure you.
