Fine products and pure flavours

Valuas & La Vie by Valuas

The restaurant focuses on classic craftsmanship based on fine products, pure flavours and authentic preparations. In the Brasserie, you can simply enjoy dishes that consist of high-quality primary products. In both the restaurant and the Brasserie, the wine list is beautifully coordinated with the cuisine. In the summer, lunch and dinner are served on the sunny terrace. From the terrace you have a view over the river Maas and the nature reserve the Maascorridor.
