Most characterful place for a beer

Tis is agent place to have a beer, but be aware that when it gets busy, Thursday night through the weekend it does very noisy inside. So you may not smoke but a seat outside if the weather is fine, is a good idea once you have sampled the atmosphere

Beautiful location for a beercafe (it's more a cafe than a restaurant), you must certainly come in for a beer. Because of the height it gets very noisy so not a good place for a quiet diner.

close to the train station, this pub is an excellent place to unwind after shopping or before take off, the atmosphere is truly unique, beers and bitterballen in the church, where else to meet good company?

If you like Belgian beers, then this is the place. 60+ Belgian beers in a former church (with a pipe organ still in the balcony). Keep an eye out for Guus, the resident cat!

This is our favourite lunch spot. The croques are exceptional and so is the variety in beers. Brilliant place!

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.
