We visited Bistro Croquant on our last night in Maastricht. The concept is small dishes or tapas, which you can share. Every dish was delicious! The roasted aubergine and homemade duck sausage with truffle sauce were the highlight for us. The service was exceptional with an attentive host and enthusiastic explanations for each dish. Highly recommend spending an evening at Bistro Croquant!


The food was just super. We had a stew, risotto, fries, tartare and it was delicious. Good wine. Warm and lovely French
Music. All in all, a very enjoyable evening.

Once again deliciously enjoyed the surprising dishes at Bistro Croquant. Cosy evening and very friendly service.


Delicious food, nice ambiance, friendly service, surprising dishes, the potato truffle soup with marinated mushrooms was really great!

On the last evening of our Maastricht city break, we went to Bistro Croquant. What a fun experience! The concept, the music and the atmosphere were so different!!! We really enjoyed eating different croquettes with very friendly service... Some combinations you would never do; they dare to do it; and the result is incredible; for example olive oil on ice cream!!!!00 Definitely recommended if you are in Maastricht....


We had a fantastic evening with my family at this wonderful restaurant. For us the second visit and still very tasty. Thanks for the great evening and see you next year!

The food was delicious. The risotto was delicious and the dessert was a surprise! Definitely the perfect choice to go out for a casual dinner with some friends or your partner 🙂

Highly recommended. Reasonable prices. Great food. And a very friendly owner. The kind of place that feels authentic and challenges what is possible with Dutch/Belgian fried food.

We are tourists and dined at this bistro. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they recommended good food to us and provided good service. Furthermore, they gave us some nice sweets before we left 😊. The bistro café is busy, we recommend booking before you go there.


The restaurant is really cosy, the service very nice and the food absolutely delicious. Good variety of dishes with a very surprising combination of tradition and modernity. Absolutely highly recommended!

Paul de Bruin

What a beautiful place. So glad I was here. This is fine dining with a delicious twist on the good old Dutch Kroket, but so much better. The croquette dessert with apple was amazing. The croquette with prawns is to die for. The risotto cooked perfectly. Couldn't find a flaw. Service great and attentive. Highly recommended.
