Good food and a wonderful atmosphere

Spent the day in Utrecht and found this place along one of the alley streets. Loved that it had open air seating out front on the street and in the back along a little green garden. We sat inside but I felt like I was sitting outside. Service was a bit slow. I ordered one of their pizzas... read more

Service was really slow but a reflection of the waitress - that's why she was lectured by the guy behind the bar! Spaghetti volgone was amazing with a generous helping of shell fish. Grilled octopus salad excellent - chicory, watermelon and grapefruit is an unusual combination but worked, especially the watermelon...one for home. It was a very hot day and... More

This place looks great and has a nice atmosphere, but it was like we were invisible to the staff. Took them a long time to ask us what we wanted to drink and we had to wait even longer before we were brought the menus. It was almost like we were ignored on purpose (which is almost understandable when staff... More

Had a good lunch here withy family. My wife and I had one of the sharing platters. It looked amazing. I mean really amazing. But once we got stuck in we were a little disappointed. Quite a few things were bland. The 'hot' meatballs weren't hot. Our girls did better with a pizza and pasta dish.

I have eaten here twice with my husband. When you walk into the restaurant, it smells wonderful! We loved the mozzarella pizza with pesto so much that we had to come back for more. On our second trip, we sat near the kitchen and saw the beautiful dishes coming out of the kitchen. Next time I will try something else.... More

This place is always busy and I really have no idea why. Food is not of a good standard, the menu is pretty basic and i find it overpriced. Service is not great either.

The menu is very unispiring, it is a "chic" Italian, but there are much better versions of it in Utrecht. Their vegetarian selections were all dull standard fare (cheese and mushrooms with everything). The service was pretty decent for the Netherlands. The room and decor was nice to look at but I have never been anywhere to eat that is... More

We walked in here without reservations on a Saturday night. The place was packed, but the estimated waiting time only 30 minutes or less, so we decided to wait at the bar. After 20 minutes or so we were guided to our table, which was perfectly located with view on the open kitchen. Despite the amount of people, the service... More

We've been to De Markt several times now because it has a charming atmosphere and friendly staff. Set in Drieherringstraat which is a lane way filled with restaurants, De Markt has good standard fare. The beef bouillon is very good and the warm bread and spice olive oil delicious. As for other menu selections - the lasagne is ok but... More

Had a nice three course meal on a midweek evening. Beetroot risotto was absolutely fantastic, so was the main. Service was a bit slow but the place was packed so not a surprise.
