Visiting Maasbracht to buy a boat, desperate for a coffee, stopped at this restaurant and sat outside watching the barges ply the Maas alongside. Great coffee and cake served by friendly, accomodating waitress. Fantastic outside seating area. Would recommend.

This was our second visit in three weeks, and the wait staff greeted us warmly and because they remembered us, they made an exception -- we hadn't booked ahead -- and allowed us to order the "Easy Monday" €19.95 special: three courses, chef's selection. Wow what an impressive combination of flavours, textures and tastes! Not only was it beautfully plated, but the portions were generous and tasty. We especially loved the tender veal fillet.

For my mother's birthday celebration we went to the Kolentip with a party of 10. The view over the Maasbracht harbour is very nice, but the temperature at the top floor is much too hot on a warm day (the so-called airco is not fit for purpose).
Dining a-la-carte was not possible with a party of more than 6 persons, which they don't tell you when you make the reservation. The menu option was good for most of us and adjustments could be made for the rest.
The food is good looking and presented in a nice way. However, the taste and preparation is just average and the amount of food is not enough (even not for my mother; a small woman of age 77 ...). Many small frills ...
The wine choice of the open wines (by glass) is limited and these wines are simple.There is a good choice of the wines by bottle and the price is acceptable. Wine recommendations are good. However, no half bottles.
The service in general is friendly and helpful. The waiting time between courses was above average.
In conclusion : nice view but the food is heavily over-rated.
Sluiszicht - across the street - is much better and provides more value for money !

PS. my wife and I have been here about 3 times before with similar experiences. So, we did not recommend to eat here. But, because the restaurant had been renovated recently (which we could not notice) and the rest of my family wanted to dine here, this restaurant was chosen. Maybe, its better to have coffee and "vlaai" or a glass of beer/wine at the terrace on a warm day - and then eat somewhere else.

Not reading or speaking Dutch at De Kolentip in Maasbracht really is not a problem, the helpful staff explained the menu in detail and we enjoyed a great meal with great views out over the water. Very much looking forward to returning when next in Masbracht

Stunning food, stunning service, stunning evening. The food is well thought and inventive. We had a selection of wine with each course which complimented the food perfectly. The staff are knowledgable, easy to talk to and soo friendly! The restaurant is neatly styled and cosy. Fantastic.
