This is the place locals like to hang out. When the sun is shining the courtyard is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Food was good - if you like Dutch croquets then you will be happy here.

We live in the neighborhood of Buurten. This is a great place to come and have a drink, food and relax. Very friendly staff, great service and good food. Buurten is very family friendly, but it is discrete and it's very easy to find a table where you wouldn't even notice there are kids. Highly recommend a visit, but definitely... More

Buurten is a Dutch word for neighborhoods, but has also meaning as a verb in the sense of 'visiting'. I guess a lot of people living close to Buurten enjoy a visit there, with their small children (and lots of them). The place is very child friendly and it is rather cosy with the fireplace outside and everything. We went... More

On a short trip visiting family, stayed in Utrecht and popped in here for an evening snack & drinks. Obviously a popular place, busy but not frenetic, nice atmosphere. Simple menu choices but friendly and efficient service. Drinks and bitterballen made for a very enjoyable late evening light snack. Recommended, and would go again for a proper meal.

Good food, lots of vegetarian dishes, friendly service. It's good for a formal or romantic dinner. Nice hang out at the terrace. The price is ok. My salad was alright but I could do with more for that price and less dressing.

This is a family restaurant. It was quite busy when we had dinner there. It seems to be a meeting place for friends, family and business. The menu is simple but varied to appeal to young and old and the food is quite good. I had the salmon with a potato pancake and mushrooms in a vegetable medley. The others... More

A kind of living-room atmosphere is successfully created in this part of Utrecht. In a part of the city close to the center. An easy and simple menu card and a quick- and friendly service. The street (which fluently goes over in the Nagtegaalstraat) is full with local shops. Full name is in fact 'Kom Buurten' which means 'drop by'.... More

Good burgers, a great place to eat inside and out and kind waiters. For me and my partner the perfect place to go to. Love it!

Buurten serves a good lunch. We enjoyed its great apple pie, but also loved the salad with grilled seabrass. It can be a bit noisy due to its good facilities for children (peanut butter sandwiches), but they have a cosy spot to avoid all that. So, you may hang around all afternoon to also enjoy the superbe latte macchiato.

The name really fits: it's a friendly neighborhood restaurant. Good selection of beers on tap, a lovely menu (from "borrelhapjes" e.g. snacks to finer plates, with excellent burgers in between) and excellent service, this is the place to stop for a casual dinner while exploring Utrecht.
