“Very good steak, slightly disinterested service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

One of the better steaks I've eaten out. I had the house special sauce which was very good too. Not much atmosphere , and staff seemed slightly disinterested. Didn't detract from the excellent food, so maybe it was just me.

“Outstanding food yet again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Great food here recently had the salmon for a change normally I just eat Flemish Stew or steak, which are fabulous too.

Salmon was fabulous and I'm not a fish person, staff attentive and also very accommodating if you are in a hurry to see the last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate.

The owners Mrs is the chef so lovely home cooked food, also great cocktails/Irish coffee, give it a try...... just a leisurely 10 minute walk from the Menin Gate, which also makes it better value than the main square

“Very average meal & experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The service staff were very disinterested and it was a struggle to get them to take my drink and food order. While it was a busy period just after the Last Post Ceremony, staff were more than happy to chat / serve locals rather than be bothered with an Australian solo traveller. The meal was very average however the beer selection was good and served cold thankfully! I wouldn't be bothered returning or recommending.

“great find with excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I had a quick look on TA before we went out for dinner and found that Utopia was recommended by bikers - always a good sign. We walked in and got a table straight away. The service was good and the food was excellent. In fact it was so good we returned the following night.
Would definitely recommend this as a place to eat in Ypres

“perfect to go with friends for a best price-quality BIG meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Perfect to go during the week with friends to have a nice evening and they have anything on the menu that you can think of! (fish, meat, pasta, salads) Best of all is that food is very tasty, big portions and it's warm when it arrives at the table. (which is not always a guarantee if you visit other restaurants!)
If you go in the weekend, make sure you make a reservation, because it can be quite busy and it would be a pity if you couldn't enjoy a meal in this restaurant.

There is also free wifi!
