The Best Restaurants in Utrecht

The 21 best restaurants Utrecht

You will find a lot of nice and affordable restaurants In Utrecht. Especially in the centre of Utrecht, for example at the Wed but also just outside the centre near Rotsoord or near the Central station. Looking for the best restaurants? You can read my favourites here.

A golden oldie from when we used to live in Utrecht. Refined fare served in a fashionable restaurant featuring a robust wine list & a seasonal patio. Housed in a former bath house, the history of the building is clearly reflected in the restaurant. The original gold letters are again on the facade. The former waiting rooms of the Badhuis are now private spaces for small groups. And for those who are interested in architecture. The interior of the entire restaurant is inspired by the Amsterdam School style. 

Restaurant Broei in Utrecht is 100% Plant-based. What a nice vegan restaurant. Located on the Oosterkade in Utrecht. The dessert with black cardamon was delicious. Great for coffee and cake, lunch or in the evening for a nice dinner.

A new restaurant in Utrecht. At Bar Bet, you order small dishes and lots of wine. An informal and casual atmosphere. Bar Bet serves nine seasonal dishes with an equal distribution of fish, meat and vegetarian with French influences. J'adore.

A lovely French petit bistro. Cosy food. Great for an evening with friends. Delicious cheese fondue and other small French dishes to share. You can sit downstairs and upstairs in the restaurant. Weather permitting, there is also a small terrace outside.

II have fond memories of this place. I celebrated my graduation and my pre wedding dinner at restaurant De Goedheyd. Charming little restaurant with a cosy atmosphere. A very fine four or five course surprise menu with a delicate taste and pairing wines. I don't have to convince you. You just must go!

On the Mariaplaats in Utrecht, you will find restaurant Jardin. Here, cooking with seasonal vegetables and herbs is the starting point. Preferably with as much organic produce as possible. At Le Jardin, they are inspired by the product and complement this with love, passion, expert knowledge of French cuisine and 'occasionally' a nice piece of meat, fish or poultry. Delicious food with fine wines.

Restaurant and Cocktailbar offering modern European fare, open-air dining. Sip away your wine or cocktail near the fireplace 

Fine dining at restaurant Fico. Amazing flavours and contemporary combinations, with a classic twist. Sister restaurant of WT Urban Kitchen. Try them both! Nice location near Utrecht station.

A luxury and iconic five star hotel in the city centre of Utrecht. Housed in a former Monastery & Military Hospital this is all monumental elegance, sparkling gastronomy with more than 650 years of history. I took my parents and hubby for dinner once. What a treat!

A complete new experience of food and wine. High on the list.

Schalkwijkstraat 26-28, 3512 KS Utrecht -

Housed in the former Pastoe factory, Restaurant Ketelhuis offers a 4,5,6 or 7 course surprise menu. The food was nice and the converted industrial building gives the atmosphere a cool vibe. Try restaurant De Zagerij next door too.

A French Bistro classic on the Wed in Utrecht.

How a brasserie is meant to be. Gives me a bit of that New York feel, too. Great for coffee, lunch, drinks and dinner.

Restaurant Nomono is located where restaurant De Klub used to be, in the old warehouse Vechtclub XL. You will now find the first 'listening' bar cum restaurant Nomono. Fun, cosy and hip.

Restaurant De Pomp is located in a former petrol station. Super nice place for breakfast, a drink or dinner. Always busy and conveniently located close to the station. I've been here a few times now and it never disappoints.

This is a really nice place. At Cafe Saar, no fuss, just good food and drink. With a great love of cheeses and natural wine. We were seated by the window. A nice spot. If you want a table, make sure you book on time.

Sea Salt Saloon is a fish bistro located on the Wed, in the middle of Utrecht, where you can enjoy fresh and responsibly caught fish every season.

Lunch, drinks and dinner in a greenhouse. You can at restaurant De Stadsjochies in Utrecht. Experience what local and fresh food from your own soil means. Their own greenhouses, full ground, vertical farm and tea garden provides daily produce and menu inspiration. Book an evening 'At our greenhouse' for a guided tour and 5-course menu.

Restaurant WT Urban Kitchen is located in a former water tower with stunning views over the city of Utrecht. Industrial heritage meets a sophisticated menu with fantastic flavours. The staff and service are outstanding. You can enjoy a four-, five- or six-course menu with matching wines. It really is a unique dining venue. Make sure you book a few weeks in advance for the 10th floor. I especially enjoyed the view of the Dom Tower, the place where I got married. Awesome!

Restaurant De Zagerij can be found next to restaurant Het Ketelhuis. Try the 3 or 4-course tasting menu and be sure to book a table on the beautiful outdoor terrace by the water. Located in the new hip Rotsoord, a former industrial area of Utrecht.

Small luxury boutique hotel with wine bar and bistro. Had a lovely dinner with matching wines. A nice place on the cosy Twijnstraat. Which is one of my favourite streets in Utrecht anyway.
