We had dinner here a couple of weeks ago to celebrate a birthday with the family and had a lovely evening. I opted for the 3-course menu. The starter was OK - the tuna tuna was tasty, but I felt that the dressing was a bit too sweet. The main dish and dessert were both delicious and beautifully plated. One thing that we found a bit disappointing was that the restaurant staff refused to serve us tap water. Overall, good value for money and if you're lucky with the weather you can enjoy your meal outside in the lush garden.

First time right. I dont know what took me so long to get here: an ebike? Great place, hospitality all over, with an exquisite food and wine list. Had lunch there several times in september.. if you are seeking a relaxed place.. go go go

During our stay at 'Kasteel Hoogeweerth', Maastricht, we decided to have diner at SOFA a restaurant adjacent to the hotel. The in and exterior are fantastic. The reviews showed 4.5 out of 5, all very promissing. Unfortunately we had this evening an uninvited guest 'Mr. Murphy'. The starter was delicious, raw tuna with condiments. For mains we ordered a fillet of tenderloin and panfried cod. The tenderloin had a portion of tendon and the cod was dry. Both meals were sub-standard by any standard. The meal would have been accompanied by fried potatos and veggies. The fried potatos were really good, we cannot comment on the veggies since they never made it to our table. No comment on the desert. When we were half way our meal the waitress asked how the meal was we made our comments to the waitress and she offered to bring new mains, but how much can one eat. We were only charged one meal as compensation.

When the weather allows it, this is a great place to eat outside on the terrace. It's situated a bit outside the city centre, best to go there by car or by bike. The food is nice and not too expensive and the staff is friendly. The wines are not very special.

We arrived on Saturday evening when it was still dry hoping to have a super evening on the terrace. However they said it was better to sit inside so we did. Asking for the drinks servants had a bit of a slow start and generally speaking if they would have put a bit more attention to the glasses we would have drank a lot more!

But than the food we took a four course surprise menu which started with a nice and tasty tuna amuse the other dishes where also very nice and relatively light, no potatos rich etc which was great and gave the main ingredient full attention. During the evening the chef was also helping with serving and explaining the dishes which was great!

Decor of the restaurant is nice and modern beatifull just outside of Maastricht, definitely worth a visit
