Basic lunch without frills

Broers is a nice pub like restaurant with basic food items. We had lunch there and it was enjoyable. Service was a bit slow and it took a whole before the food arrived although it was not that busy.

I needed somewhere for lunch and a bit of study. This place was perfect, with a lovely atmosphere and awesome art deco decor. The staff were good when i eventually managed to get hold of one of them, the food was ok, the coffee awful (push button machine) but overall enjoyed but mainly due to surroundings being beautiful.

Once a year I visit Utrecht with my old study friends and almost automatically we go to Restaurant Broers, in the old historical building of Hotel de Pays Bas. It is conveniently located at the Janskerkhof in the centre of Utrecht. It serves European food, good quality and for reasonable prices. We always arrive between 7.30-8 pm, when it's not... More

This place has one of the most terrible service in Utrecht. The waiters hardly look to the customers and if you want something you have to go ask it yourself. Staff are not friendly and it really needs a management.

We went to a concert of the Old Music Festival in Utrecht with friends at the Willibrord Church. Right nearby was Broers for a quick cup of coffee. Pleasant place, we had a (quite wobbly) table outside, viewing the old church there at Janskerkhof. After the concert we came back for a bite. I ordered the hamburger expecting one made... More

Broers is an old friend of me and my buddies. When we were young we went there to party and get really drunk. At daytime it is a place were you'll find students, artists, yuppies and any other sort of human being. They upgraded the interior with good taste and more of this time, job well done. Broers is un... More
