Restaurant is located in the heart of Maastricht. The big terrace is right next to the street, but traffic is little and not disturbing. Food was really delicious, but the portions are a bit small and expensive. Ordering multi courses right away wasn't possible. Instead...More

My boyfriend took me there few days ago for a date. Food - delicious! We ordered 6-7 small dishes to share and we totally loved it 😊 Deep fried zucchini and stokvis - it just blew my mind. :) Attentive, friendly service, food comes quickly,...More

Summer in Maastricht brings heaps of tourists, so we generally avoid restaurants in the most “tourist” districts of our city. Therefore a Sunday night visit to il Bacaro was a pleasant and most lekker (English = delicious) surprise! If you are looking for family-style large...More

Great food, a bit pricey. The water was super expensive (It might have been almost $5 for a litre), so I recommend you order tap water.

We shared about 8 dishes between two couples and they were all great. My favourite was the spaghetti with truffles followed by the burrata with anchovies and peppers. Desert choices were limited. Service was attentive and courteous.

Last night we had an authentic Italian meal. In Cologne! Il Bacaro comes nowhere near. Head to head test: The tomato bruschetta here was bland. The Cologne version was authentic, with actual olive oil and actual garlic. Very disappointed, given the high rating on TA.

Close to the Market place but thankfully far from the crowds, Il Bacaro seemed a good option for a late Saturday lunch. A polite and fast waitress came over and asked if I need the menu in English, which was a good welcoming note. Then...More
