Brasserie Monopole – a Mestreechs delight on Vrijthof!

Brasserie Monopole on Maastricht's Vrijthof

To sit, of an evening, in a quietly bustling city square, devoid of traffic save for the intermittent buzz of a passing cycle hither and thither, your horizon a vista of spires and steeples sympathetically lit in cinematic blue and gold, sipping local wine and tasting local dishes, is surely a slice of Heaven itself.

It is what makes European city breaks so special, that elusive, season-hardy café society that the English shun and covet at the same time.

Maastricht has bars and restaurants like these aplenty, but one of particular note and fulsome character has to be the remarkable Brasserie Monopole, resplendent in red and purple on Vrijthof.

The beers, wines and spirits are of the usual high standard, but it is the conviviality and food that set this little venue among the supremos. Whether choosing a light and local bite, or a more substantial meat, fish or pasta dish, this fine example of Dutch eateries will stay with you longer than most.

A few hours spent here is most certainly a few hours well spent.
