Inspired by the French concept of "Table d'hotes", we serve a different five course menu for our guests, every day. In C'est Ca we always make use of organic meat, MSC certified fish and only purchase fresh seasonal produce for our daily changing dishes. We don't have complicated menus to choose from, but offer a delicious high quality 5 course meal for all to enjoy. Our chef combines the finest seasonal ingredients, to create a delicious French meal, consisting of a starter, a soup, a main course, a cheese platter and a sweet dessert. All homemade of course, to give our guests the ultimate homely feeling you can experience in a foreign restaurant.

As it was my birthday, we were looking for a special place to eat, where we could spend a leisurely evening, rather than being rushed in and out like most places we had eaten in. This proved to be the perfect choice. When we phoned to book a table, they asked us if we had any allergies because the set... More

In a world where the guiding motto of restaurants is pack them in and treat the food as factory production this place stands as a brilliant exception. The whole premise seems to be genuine care for food, ambience and the eating experience of guests. The set four course menu concept bespeakes real thought about contrasts, variety and experiences. The food... More

Me and my boyfriend have enjoyed an excellent French dinner, with various foods. Bouillabaise, beef, cheese, chocolate... It was amazing! The atmosphere is very romantic and the waiting staff is nice and well instructed. The only (very small) critical point is that a pillow would have been nice on the wooden bench ;-)

During a four day trip to Utrecht a party of 19 of us enjoyed a splendid meal in Cest Ca. A member of our group found The Restaurant advertised on The Internet, a fortuitous discovery.

We were a group of 20 on a weekend break to Utrecht and had dinner here. It's a five course set menu with matching wines (if you want to). Freshly cooked by the team of all women chefs, the food was light, delicious and each course complemented the one before. It was served at a leisurely pace. We arrived at... More

no menu, no choosing stress, just a great five course dinner in a friendly relaxed atmosphere! If you wish, they also choose a glass of wine appropriate for each course.

We were made to feel super welcome when arranging a last minute booking pretty late in the evening for a business dinner. Things proceeded to get better - outstanding service, great flexibility on the menu and lovely food. Thank you for looking after us - you did a fab job.
