Beautiful plates

Good service, great quality food, lovely served. We had the 4 courses with supplement cheese and adjusted wines. Every dish another wine, absolutely delicious. And all this for a correct price. Will definitely return!

Our expectations were high - due to the many excellent tripadvisor reviews - and they were met - in all respects. A very friendly and professional staff, a talkative, enthusiastic and unique chef with the ability both to learn from other fine restaurants/chefs and find his special approach to the craft of present day gastronomy. We had the six course... More

Let me be brief this time. Staff are superfriendly, knowledgeable, adept. They know about the food and have an excellent choice of accompanying wines. The food was just superb, tradionally French I would say, but with a lighter touch. For instance for starters we had brill with a very nice noilly prat (I presume) sauce. But not too much butter...

For a birthday dinner, I had made a reservation at 'Podium Onder de Dom' for 4 people. The reservation had been made and confirmed 3 days before the actual dinner evening. However, once arrived at the restaurant with my family, the staff told me that my reservation had been cancelled and that I (apparently) have been informed by email a... More

Some months ago this restaurant changed its location, now being located in a very nice hotel (Domhotel) in the old center of Utrecht, for which reason the restaurant changed its name into "Podium onder de Dom". Very nice venue and atmosphere! Being a somewhat regular visitor, I can say that they still find possibilities to even improve their already very... More

I had a wonderful dinner here tonight. The menu was surprising and finished off by lovely wine pairing. There are very few restaurants that show this much passion and skill in their work. I will return soon.

Warm weather? Try and get a table near one of the huge open doors leading towards the garden, a lovely place to be. Young team makers for new dishes mixed with some classics. Would think they are working on a michelin Star. Tried to have dinner here a couple of times, but they are very popular. Solo visit, very well... More
