Had a great evening of wonderful beers, good food, service and atmosphere. Tried heaps of different beers and can recommend them all! Had the roast chicken and ham knuckle. All good.

There really aren't that many places like this, a proper hidden church refurbished as a top-of-the-line beer house. Delirium Tremens plaques on the wall next to statues of saints. No idea about the food, but the beer selection will keep you going for a good long while.

Very busy location, hard to get table. Nice selection of beers, separate recommendation for each dish in menu is helpful. Food itself was bit plain(I had chicken). Good and sufficiently fast service.

This is a brasserie/bar/restaurant place located inside a church just off the Oude Gracht. It is hugely popular amongst the students, locals and passers-by, if they find it! There is always a bussel to find a seat, especially if you are with a large group, but they always manage somehow to get you nicely seated. Food is excellent, service is... More

We had drinks and food in this wonderful former hidden church. What a beautiful setting. Wide choice of drinks and the food. Strongly recommend the fish. The ambiance and the staff are lovely xxx

Although set in a very beautiful location (an old church in the centre of Utrecht) there is simply too much noise inside to enjoy your meal. I have eaten twice in this restaurant and found the selection of food poor (ended up selecting the same dish both times) and once only for drinks and hapjes. The food I ordered was... More

It looks like any other building from the outside, but when you walk through the doors you'll find this is a former church. Several Belgian and Dutch beers to choose from, great pub food. I certainly recommend the ham.

If you've never had a beer in a church, well now is your chance. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I had the mussels in wine sauce with fries, my husband had the chicken. We topped it off with a dessert with profiteroles, ice cream and chocolate. Great selection of beers. This is a must see... More

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
