Tribunal is a well known little cafe within Maastricht. Cosy place with simple but good lunch. Located close to Vrijthof, family business, good service.

This is another of out regular haunts....this time for weekend brunch! It is a light and quite airy "brown bar" Dutch Café which has always a very fine layer of fine white sand on the floor which I love! Makes it feel well groomed and clean (which it is!). They do a great offer of spek en ei (bacon and... More

Nice cafe bit off site where locals like to come. Typical brown cafe with good beers, tasty coffee and good simple food. Went there today and few students sang Spanish songs with guitar etc. Nice morning surprise.

I came upon the Tribunal in the Jekerkwartier as a result of straying up Ezelmarkt to Tongersestraat, off the far point (Bonnefantenstraat/Looiersgracht) of the self guided tour of Mastricht that begins at the VVV Tourist Office in the Stokstraatkwartier.

Tribunal is a great place to grab a beer and meet up with friends after a hard day at work. Seating outside or in, the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. Easy to find and close to the centre of town.

Visited by chance on Bastille Day...live music from a brass band playing. Great atmosphere. Shelled peanuts being given out and floor covered in spent shells. Good range of beers. Friendly staff. Close to city centre in student area.

Fantastic atmosphere. Wonderful meal. Fresh food for a very reasonable price. That was our headquarter for breakfast during our week in Maastricht. Will come back.

Whether you want a coffee or a beer, breakfast lunch or dinner, Tribunal is a friendly down to earth bar serving all you need. I particularly like the monkey nuts they serve with your beer, the husks you throw on the floor....

We had an unplanned lunch in this pub, on a Saturday afternoon. The lunch was served quickly and the quality was, unexpectedly, superb. All the sandwiches we had were of superior quality, fresh ingredients and plenty of them. All the sandwiches tasted great and the price was good. Just one of those experiences you that is unexpected but great!
