Good atmosphere and plenty of space for groups

This is a great place to sit down for a draft beer with some friends or colleagues after a hard day. The atmosphere is cosy and there are plenty of couches to sink into.

Walden has excellent salads and pastas. It is situated under the Dom and has outside seating which is lovely in the spring and summer. You can't beat it in terms of price and quality, the only drawback is that it's often very busy, so make a reservation!

We went there for lunch with our 3 children, although the place is a bar. But it's a restaurant too, which serves really good pub food. We had hamburgers, there were really really good. Even the kids said they were so much better than McDonald's (that's easy, but coming from a child... not an easy confession to make). Really healthy,... More

We were attending this place after visiting the nearby DOMunder to relax and chat. The place was full inside and it took the waiters some time to notice our presence. Unfortunately the service didn't improve too much later either.

Tucked in the corner of the Dom Square you will find Walden Bar Restaurant. We have come here twice over the past 2 weeks as it is a great place to sit outside and watch the world pass by. The service can be a little slow, but that is because it is a busy little place. The inside is warm... More

Not so easy to get a table, this is a great spot with really great food. We spent an entire afternoon here relaxing and simply drinking beer. Loved this place!

You can easily get a spot on their terras but getting a drink is another story. Been sitting here for 50 minuten and moved to the neighbors to get served...

We were in Utrecht for the day and got signed up for a tour of the Domtower then went looking for someplace to have lunch while we waited until it was time for the tour. As Walden is just next to the VVV (tourist office), we thought we would try it. We sat outside and had a lovely view of... More

This is a great place to hang out in Utrecht. They have a beautiful terrace with Dom tower view, which is in my opinion one of the best places to spend a sunny afternoon. You can order some good and very affordable food. At night it's a nice place to have a drink.

This place offers great student meals. I had a good time with my friends playing memory while drinking wine and deciding on the food. We had a wonderful 3-course-meal at low budget. The atmosphere is very relaxed.
