Excellent Italian dining. Honestly everything we had here was great and it was reasonably priced. I got the mushroom and spinach lasagna, my husband had salmon both dishes were very tasty. We had several glasses of wine and cheesecake for dessert. We will return on our next visit to the country.

We were advised against eating down on the canal-side and instead directed to Drieharingstraat where there are several restaurants. We chose De Markt as it was popular yet not crowded and the menu looked good. There was outside dining and plenty of tables inside. The wooden floors do not make for a quiet time but it was not too noisy.... More

Had to find somewhere close to Utrecht Central Station for a business lunch appointment. De Markt did the job, nothing special. Service was fine and food about average for a Dutch cafe. Could do without the hassle of walking through a shopping centre to get out of the train station.

They do good food, and you might have to wait a few minutes longer than average. I used the time wisely to enjoy a beer or two...as you do. They are also very good with young children, and are very family friendly.Drieharingstraat, when you find it, is 'the place to be' for quality, service and value.

We chose to sit indoors on a warm afternoon and doors were partially opened onto an attractive garden area .A gentle breeze was welcome. Vegetarian lasagne with a Caesar salad arrived quite quickly and both were enjoyed. Service was both friendly and quick, but at the time, the restaurant wasn't very busy for early lunch.

i love the ambiance of this place. It's vintage ornaments is nice. It also has a small garden on the back and is really great to have a seat near the garden. We actually found this place incidentally. We walk by the alley, and found this restaurant. It seems that they have more variant foods than the other restaurant nearby.... More

We ate here on a Saturday lunchtime as part of a group of 5 couples and the food was lovely. Anti pasta to start was fantastic and the salads were lovely and fresh. Both the price and atmosphere were brilliant and it's in a great location - we would definitely return.

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 and it... 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
