Friture Reitz is a famous restaurant on the Old Market in Maastricht, a city with French and Spanish influences, close to the Belgian border. If you visit the capital of the province of Limburg and have not tried their fries, it is like you were not there at all. With a century of business experience under their belt, Friture Reitz is now part of the local culture. The oldest ‘friture’ of the Netherlands, dating from 1909, was taken over by Ronald Consten and his partner Jacqueline Smits in 1998 from Consten’s parents.
