“Curious food combination, poor service”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

I had a dinner there thanks a groupon. We had a glass of prosecco as welcome drink. Then we ordered, as starter, bread with garlikc butter. 7 pieces of breat on a wood plate with 1 knife (and we were in 2). The garlik butter was actually only butter...
Main course. Very nice plate with soft meat properly cooked. A strange combination: above every piece of meat, a shrimp. It makes no sense.... Beside, bruxelles veggie, mushrooms, frites, 2 souces. Overall, nice! It tasted good, but nothing special.

The tables are extremely small: definitely not enough for a couple when you have 4-5 plates and 2 glasses. And the service should also be improved, be more kind. I had the impression there was a race in the restaurant.

“Friendly staff and great location”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

This is a very popular place with the locals. It's situated in a corner of Markt Square, looking on to the city hall and the weekly markets. It's a great place for people watching as there is a lot of pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

I enjoyed having a meal and a drink in the terrace. It's a great place to spend an hour or two in the late afternoon or evening. Food is pretty good. I had a
Burger Meister" dish. In Dutch the Burger Meister is the mayor, so it's a cute play on words across from the City Hall.

“Great Location.”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Located in the Markt, the Dinnerpub de la Bourse is very convenient and easily accessible; however, being located in the Markt, you run into many things common with markt restaurants throughout Europe - namely, slightly higher prices and being geared more towards the touristy market. Despite this, I will say that my meal and service were both good. In fact, I actually recommended it to my mom, who would be traveling there within a month of my departure.

“Good, decent and cosy place”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

The location is perfect with al fresco seating looking over the central market square.

We enjoyed the Maastricht Zuurvlees dish which although a bit sweet tasting stillade for a filling and enjoyable meal.

The chicken salad was fresh and well seasoned. They also offer 1 meter of spare ribs which looked good.

Good value and very friendly service.
