Maastricht has many excellent dining places. It's worth browsing the eastern end of Tongersestraat, the little streets around the Vrijthof and Rechtstraat, just east of the river. Onze Lieve Vrouweplein is excellent for a warm-weather cafe interlude, and several characterful mini-restaurants line the lane running directly south from there – a good place on Monday evenings, when most other places close.
