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!

“Excellent local flavors, reasonable price”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This place was a huge positive surprise for me, I expected less based on the reviews.

I tried the local speciality beefstew "zuurvlees" and the gooseberry pie "vlaai". Both were amazing, among the best foods I have ever eaten in the Netherlands, Although the service was a little bit slow, the high quality of the food was worth the waiting. The portions and prices are reasonable. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Try the Italian sandwich with marinated chicken, bacon and mushrooms or the union soap. It's all very delicious!!

“Good food for reasonable price”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

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 :-)

“Good mussels”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

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.
