A unique dining experience

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... read 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

Buzzing with life ! Great place for a beer . You may have to wait to get a table . The ambience of the Old church which houses this bar is amazing

This is a great place to go for a few beers as it has a huge selection and a very interesting building which makes it rather unique. It can get very busy (rubbing shoulders busy) sometimes during standard drinking times so keep that in mind. I have also dined there and found my meal reasonably priced and tasty (Ham on... More

One nice bar, with a nice assortment of beers and on a very nice location. The service is good and there is a nice atmosphere. It is a busy place but it never feels to crowded. There could be a little more information about the function and development of the church.

The Olivier has an awesome reputation - a great place for its wide variety of Belgian beers, and perhaps the venue - an old church complete with a high Gothic ceiling. We only had breakfast, but which was great and in large portions. Certainly a place where one can spend an entire morning or afternoon, with friends or family. The... More

I went with a group of people for drinks and dinner. While I had a good time, the place was so crowded and loud that people frequently bumped into me and it was difficult to have a proper conversation with my friends. It got a little better when we were having dinner. The food was okay, but there weren't many... More

Olivier has been one of my favorite places to have a great beer. If you are a beer-lover, go for the ever changing draft beers. If you are not sure about a draft beer, ask for a taste. They have small 'tasting' glasses. Or go for a beer-try-out, where you get 4 smaller beers to try. Ask the waiter. They... More
