We've been visiting Blauw (not often enough) regularly since we first came across it on our first trip to Utrecht 6 years ago. As ever the Utrecht Blauw is exceptional on all fronts.

What a great place. We booked after reading reviews, and we weren't disappointed. This is a small but cosy restaurant, with very friendly and helpful staff. We opted for the rice table as so many others had recommended it. We were presented with 6 meat dishes, 9 side dishes and 2 types of rice. The portions were just right to... More

I have eaten at Blauw more than once, and I was never disappointed. I love spicy food and they are good at it, I especially love all the "side dishes" that come with your main dish order, diverse, exciting and tasty.

Blauw is of the beaten track in Utrecht and attracts mostly local. The food is really amazing, a feast of tastes attacking your palate. My recommendation is not to bother with the menu but order the "rijsttafel Blauw". Your table will be filled with a wide variety of different meats, fish, vegetables, and rice.

We had a very very good dinner at this good looking restaurant and would rate it very good but..... the men's bathroom was a mess: the toilet was leaking. 26 euro's for a bottle of house white-wine I think it's expensive.

We went here on the recommendation of Trip travelers and weren't dissappointed ..Far from it ..the staff were friendly, the place buzzing, the food a lovely surprise . We like many others had the Rijsttafel..16 lovely tasting dishes gives you a good intro into Indonesian cooking . Luckily we decided to book..would definitely visit again and again

Great location!Friendly staff and good service!!The food is amazing!We will go back soon.My advice if you go for a rijstaffel don't take a starter otherwise you will feel bulking and won't be able to enjoy dessert.

this is definitely one of the best restaurants in Utrecht. Terrific indonesian food. Try a 'rijsttafel' and you get a table full off small snacks. Literally there is no place left on the table (ok its a small table:)

Modern, informal atmosphere, not a conventional Indonesian restaurant in appearance or in the choice of dishes. It all tasted excellent. A busy place, you need to make a reservation.
