“good food, disappointing service”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

The food was in line with our expectations based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately it wasn't an immaculate culinary experience because of the very cocky sommelier.

“Exquisite flavours ”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

The modest exterior conceals a culinary delight within.

A selection of gins amongst the aperitifs (enjoyed the Mare with Fever Tree tonic) followed by the 3-dish (2 choices) Market Menu and enjoyed beautifully cooked mackerel, sole and pork. The desserts were tasty and the selection of cheeses well chosen; even the mint tea was well served in its own unique teapot.

The young waitresses were friendly, and professional (bordering on over-attentive) on a busy Saturday when booking necessary.

Meals of this standard do not come cheap but I thought, at EUR200 for three, the quality was value for money.

“A memorable diner in the best way”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We read good reviews and decided to give it a try. The staff were very friendly, professional and knew about the wine and food. Before diner we had a drink and were treated with some appetizers. They were delicious and just perfect. We ordered the market menu and again it was amazing. We took the wine arrangement too and this was also a good decision. Wines of a kind you wouldn't normally be served in a restaurant, with an explanation by our waitress. The dessert ... what can we say? Excellent. We were having such a good time that three hours went by like nothing. When I got the check I was pleasantly surprised with the reasonable prices charged by such an excellent restaurant.

“excellent...!!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Since we´re going out for dinner very often I suppose we are able to make a good comparison. Yesterday we had a wonderful lunch @ Rantree. The service is very competent, fast and professional. The food is superb. We ordered a 3 course lunch for 35€ each but in the end got 2 amuse bouche courses as well as one soup and one pre-dessert extra, which made the lunch perfect. High quality food for a very reasonable price! The team is young but very professional though. I wish the team all the best and many many satisfied guests. We will definitely come back soon !! :-)

“Superb”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We were in Maastricht to see the Andre Rieu concert. We stumbled across this place whilst looking for a meal prior to the concert. There was not much custom which worried us a bit , but the foodk and service was superb albeit rather expensive (150euros for 2 with a good bottle of wine)
