Great location, good food and waiting

This restaurant is located in an old church so the location is unique. Many beers offered and the food is good. Though I don't feel it's really a restaurant. It's more a big pub with good food. - it's quite noisy and you wait a lot to get your food.

When we arrived in the late afternoon there was plenty of seating. We waited for a long time for someone to take our order. The staff seemed very busy (despite it not being a very busy time of day) so we ended up google translating all of the menu instead of asking the staff for assistance. Once we ordered beers... More

During 5 nights of stay in Utrecht, I visited Olivier twice. When entering the restaurant, I cannot miss the the statues and instruments that characterized a Church. However the ambience of the place is good to spend an evening drinking beer with friends, as the bar offer a variety of beers. A place not to miss in the evening in... More

With great menu selection that offers something for everyone. Worried the fondue, bisque and veal. All were tasty. Great atmosphere and enjoyable space for groups or hanging out with friends.

My wife and I had dinner here on 3 consecutive evenings. It is located in a former church, the food is tasty and very reasonably priced. One evening we were seated in the organ loft with a great birds' eye view of the main body of the restaurant; the other times we were downstairs. Even though it was always crowded... More

My favorite bar by far in Utrecht. Staff is always eager to advice on what beer to pick (>100 beers on the menu!) based on what you're into. Proper bar food like chips and steak, but this is not the reason you would visit Olivier. The venue itself is stunning and already worth a visit. Situated in an old church,... More

It was very busy when I visted Olivier, but that's bizniz as usual over there. They've won prizes being the best place in town. The place is very cosy and we had drinks before our noses in notime. Dinner was very tasteful and just in the right proportion.

Olivier is situated in an old church, with huge organs and beautiful wood carvings. They serve lots of different Belgian beers, all very nice! There is a very large bar and lots of tables, where you can sit or stand. Staff is very friendly and knows a lot about the beers, so they can advise you, if necessary. You also... More
