Great atmosphere and great choice of beer

Dropped in for an afternoon beer. The place itself is an old church, which means that it is a cosy place just because of the interior/building. Great atmosphere, packed with people. Loads of different beers, and the staff seemed very knowledgeable about what they served and were quick. Did not give... read more

This was a great find. From outside it doesn't look like an old church. It is bustling, and there are plenty of tables and staff. The fish was excellent. Would definitely return here

Based on recommendations from my customer I went here for dinner. Its an old church that has been turned into a pub/dining. Quite a nice atmosphere, but VERY loud inside. Not the place for a romantic dinner as you probably would have to scream to be able to hear each other. Having said that, the food is amazing! I took... More

Great environment! Many young people around, great selection of beers. The inside is stunning - it is great to drink a beer inside such an old building, and it was a church! Worth the visit!

This Flemish restaurant is built into an old church building right next to the main shopping mall and station of Utrecht. It combines the looks and atmosphere of a Flemish beer café, but with plenty of fresh air to breathe. Service is swift. Obviously there is a beer menu with 50+ types of beer, with a bar area where you... More

We went there after dinner for drinks and I was so surprised to see this huge space inside when from the outside it looked like a typical Dutch building. The idea of the bar inside the old church is very original and we enjoyed it a lot. A huge variaty of beer, the personell was nice and friendly, the atmosphere... More

Have you ever had dinner into a church? You should try Olivier in Utrecht. The service was a bit slow, but the staff was very friendly and the food was good. I advice Mussels as it is a Belgian restaurant.

This is really a pub more than a cafe. Focus is on Belgium beers. Located very close to the Central Station. Dark inside with low lighting. Loud with so many people. For drinks easier to just order at the bar while others find a table. Friendly staff. Great beer but full bar. Menu is good but not many people eating.... More
