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

The food is absolutely fine, probably one of the technically best restaurants in all of Utrecht. The location is certainly splendid, a chic town house in the middle of the center of this very attractive historic city. So why am I not all that excited ? The food was well prepared, but just not very surprising or creative. And if... More

A dining jewel in the heart of beautiful Utrecht! A young but very professional team creates superb courses/dishes with daring & accompanying wines. Nothing is perfect but the whole brigade for sure must have come very near...

The menu is excellent, one can not dine à la carte. This is not a flaw in my opinion, the standard for the dishes is high and all the attention and skills are used to give you a unique gastronomic experience. The accompanying wines are also fine. One of the brigade is a grappa connaisseu so a grappa with the... More

Food was excellent: surprising yet natural combinations served with a modern touch but not too complicated. Service was outstanding, great knowledge, discretion and sense of humour. Able to read guests needs, the head chef was present into the service interacting with his guests. The wine arrangement was perfect! Value for money is a 10+. Well done! Keep it up!
