This 1630s building alone was worth the exploration. However, everything and everyone at this cozy restaurant exceeded our every expectation. The food was exceptional. The menu offered a 'price fixed' selection as well as ala carte. All four of us were enormously pleased with every aspect of our meals. In a city with so many fine restaurants, Ut Lieuwke was our best eating experience.

Hello. We visited Maastricht as a family party of 6 from UK to see Andre Rieu in concert. It was a truly wonderful experience, Maastricht and the Dutch people are warm and welcoming... with exception to the proprietor of Ut Lieuwke.

My family and I searched for a lovely Dutch restaurant to celebrate our weekend and stumbled upon this establishment prior to the concert. We were initially delighted with the welcome from the two charming young Dutch waitresses (sisters) who invited us to a good table; the owner behind the bar was a completely different story!!!!

She refused to even consider one of my party amending a set meal menu, switching one course for a more expensive choice that we would pay for... after much huffing and puffing with great annoyance, she relented. She then proceeded to insult us, stating British people drink too much, you want to order more wine!!!!?? We passed this off as a joke at first (thinking that some UK like a drink, but so does the rest of the world).. we said no thanks, no wine, but some water.... she still maintained the wine comment; persisting with a terrible racial stereotype that wasn't called for. Uncalled for and rude!!!!

Moving into the evening, my mother aged 70 was physically man-handled out of the toilet by this manager; who insisted to know "THIS TOILET IS FOR PAYING GUESTS ONLY!!! Holding her arm and physically moving her. My mum was quite shocked and told her where she was sat, where the Manager had been racially aggressive to my family.... then my mother was frog-marched back to her seat!!! DISGUSTING BEHAVIOUR AND COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE!!!

The food was delicious and can't be faulted in anyway, but the Manager needed special attention. The two waitresses were charming and displayed exemplary customer service...

Thankfully it didn't ruin our evening at the concert; but after spending nearly £275 on a meal for six people, you expect to be treated at least with some respect. Thank you.

Business dinner really impressive, excellent presentation of dishes and good quality, I suggest the lobster bisque... Amazing and tasteful.

Remarkable wine list .. Really impressive !

I suggest a visit in this small but "state of the art" restaurant !

We had a two course dinner (starters and main). The starter was the tuna sashimi which was very nice. I had the tournedos as a main and my wife had the veal steak. Both were perfectly cooked and served with a tasty sauce. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

The special occasion was our son's graduation from Maastricht University, so we were looking for cuisine beyond the standard Dutch deep fry fare. Exceptional quality does not seem to be all that rare in Maastricht, but in high demand as reservations had to be made way in advance. Ut Lieuwke is a very cozy, some might say cramped, place which can probably fit 40 guests at most (there were 37 that evening) and it is probably full every night. And it deserves to be fully booked! The four of us had three different appetizers and four different main courses and all of them were utterly well prepared, beautifully presented and each a culinary delight in its own right. The wine list also offered enough choices at acceptable prices. Service was very attentive and friendly - overall, a worthy experience for the occasion.
