Description: Where a tower of the Roman 'castellum' once stood there's now this monumental 17th century restaurant with veranda. With view of the river Maas and the ancient city park, close to the beautiful 'Onze Lieve Vrouwe' basilica (basilica of Our Lady). Hence the name 'La Bonne Femme', the good wife. Let yourself be tempted by her warmth and ambiance. In this restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere the meals are still prepared using seasonal products from Limburg and Belgium. 'The good wife' will make you feel most welcome and maybe... You will even fall in love with her!

Dinner with four; we ordered 1 portion of Olive tapenade with bread and 1 Baguette with herb butter along with a great Karmaliet tripel and some rose wine, which was enough for 4 as a starter!.
Main dishes were French onion soup, Schnitzel with stroganoff sauce, Codfish with saffronsauce and a Deer steak with stew pear and mushroomsauce. All great. Only the schnitzel came with french fries according to the menu but they served 4 portions without extra charge!
1 dame blanche and 2 coffee (1 with cognac, 1 with Tia Maria) completed a very nice dinner in a great atmosphere for ~25EURO pp!
We'll be back :-)

The restaurant is cozy cafe style inside, with a large terrace facing the river, well covered in case of a shower. We sat inside and the waiter was smiling and attentive. We ordered mussels with garlic and cream as they are in season now, and apart from the fact that they forgot the cream and the chopped garlic was added in a heap on top of one of the casseroles, the mussels were cooked correctly and tasted excellent. Very nice big fries with mayo and two different sauces came with the food. Our daugthers had burgers, consisting of properly ground meat, and with a good taste. A small salad was on the side.
I would come back for the ambiance and when I want a regular, not fancy, not tooexpensive, but still good meal.

We stumbled across La Bonne Femme on our self-guided tour of Maastricht (that's another story!) The restaurant is in 3 parts, the original part of the building, an extension to the side and a large outside eating area. There were fabulous paintings around the place, quite fancied taking one or two home with me.
The staff were very friendly and attentive. Spoke excellent English. Food was delicious, very homely and filling. Lovely ambiance, great place for lunch/dinner with friends.
Will certainly go back should I be n Maastricht again.

Very nice restaurant at a very central location of the city, just nearby the big park. Sitting in one of the outside's tables and watching the city while drinking your beer is fantastic.
The restaurant has wide variety of foods and the steak we preffered was delicious. The waiter was very helpful, he asked again if we liked the food. Everything was good.

Highly recommended.

I've eaten at this particular restaurant in Maastricht a couple of times in the past and took my wife there on a recent trip to the city. It's located in a nice part of town not far from the river Maas and the pedestrian bridge. Luckily we were in town for the start of the asparagus season. In Europe, asparagus is grown in mounds, so it's not exposed to the sun and remains white. It's a very delicate dish and is usually served with white sauce and either ham or salmon. It was well prepared at this cafe. In addition, we had a local speciality dessert of rice pie which we were told dates back to Spanish rule over the Netherlands long ago. The waiters were friendly, the atmosphere was homey and comfortable. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting in Maastricht for a few days.
