“Upcoming in Maastricht”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

We visited this restaurant a few times the past year and I’m becoming more surprised during every visit. The son of the owners is making slightly changes step by step and every time it’s an improvement. The wine list is improving; they tend to have more qualitative Italian wines at affordable prices. The lunch menu is always a surprise; very good value for money. They told me thet a going to change the interior in a short while and that will give this restaurant an uplift that’s congruent with the food & wines. The service is excellent and this restaurant has an outstanding price-quality-ratio. It’s also located very central in Maastricht.

“Dutch delight”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

This was a family visit to 't Plenkske on a first visit to Maastricht and although from the outside it looks like just another restaurant inside it is not.

The service and food from start to finish was exceptional with the little apertiser being a clue to what was to come. Glasses were almost invisibly replenished and the courses, although not particularly quick in arriving, were exceptional. The highlights were the Frogs Legs in sauce and the steak for me but murmurs about the deer and the chocolate desert from family members were just as complimentary.

Not cheap but that very special occasion very highly recommended.

“Very nice restaurant, excellent food, always a pleasure to come back!”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

This has been our favorite restaurant in Maastricht for over 37 years; the first time we went here was back in 1975. Our children were almost born here. So for our 38th wedding anniversary we went back to Maastricht again and we enjoyed a fabulous lunch at the terrace. Nice priced set lunch and dinner; good menu and wine list as well; friendly staff. See the pictures and be convinced!

“Superb cuisine and ambiance, t'Plenske never disappoints”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

t’Plenske is a lovely upscale restaurant located in the old town section of Maastricht on Plankstraat. It is an easy walk from the footbridge crossing the Maas River, and also accessible by taxi for those with limited mobility. The dining room is open and sunny during the day, bright and sophisticated by night.
The menu is innovative and creative, combining traditional Dutch cuisine with a modern flair. As a starter I recommend the salad of green and white asparagus served with truffle cream and old Dutch cheese (fantastic) and the carpaccio of beef with olive oil, basil and parmesan cheese. For the main course, it is hard to choose because they are all so good: fillet of beef served with duck liver and red wine truffle sauce; filet of turbot served with beurre blanc and Dutch shrimps; and in case you haven't had your fill of asparagus, the Limburg asparagus, Livar ham, boiled egg butter cream sauce and baby potatoes. The wine list is substantial and offers selections across a wide price range. Desserts are fantastic, and artistically served. Prices are reasonable for this kind of quality.
This has been a favorite of mine in Maastricht since I discovered it in 2005.
