This is a great place to go for a drink. It is located in a secret church, a very special place in the middle of Utrecht

This is a bar with atmosphere, it's usually quite busy and if you go late afternoon and you don't want to eat then you are likely to be perched on a bar stool or standing around. It's really popular. I've eaten there several times and it's always been good standard, quite small choice, but really good belgian chips. The only... More

The bar/restaurant Olivier is always a good spot to have a drink or a bite to eat. This Belgium cafe in the heart of the city of Utrecht is situated in an old Church. (The outside looks like a regular house, not a church, but the inside is really a church.. ask your waiter why). The beer selection is fabulous.... More

Amazing selection of diverse beers. Not just Belgian beers but also local NL brews. Very knowledgeable staff who can recommend good choices (as long as it isn't too busy, which it normally is these days). Really good choice for a drink. The high church ceilings do make it loud in there but it also adds to the atmosphere. I have... More

I've been here several times for drinks with friends. They have a wide selection of Belgian beers and have some local ones as well. The special thing about the place is obviously the atmosphere - it can only happen in the Netherlands that you have beer in a church :)

Great bar with an excellent selection of (mostly Belgian and some local) beers. It is situated in an old church. Gastropub-like food of decent quality. Popular place so most of the time you will be hard pressed to find a seat.

The building is very nice, but the high ceilings make it very noisy. One of the best places to taste different types of belgian beer. The food is not so good. But after all this beers you will not notice that. ;-)

Restaurant Olivier is a surprising building on the edge of a modern mall in the centre of Utrecht. The ambiance is great and the food is nice. Do expect a lot of noise and busy clientele. Food is in combination with drinking a nice beer!

I and a business colleague came for the beer and bitterbollen. And what a fantastic choice. Made all the better for drinking (a venal sin?) in what was a former catholic church surrounded by statues and iconography. Great setting, great beers, and superb atmosphere. And (as with all Dutch people) perfect English is spoken by the staff if your Dutch... More
