I had eaten here several years ago and decided to take my wife back so she could experience dinning on the canal. The Bis was not extrememly crowded and we were seated at window along the canal. The Manager was able to answer our questions regarding the city and made our dinner that much better. We were not rushed and... More

I went here 2 weeks ago for bussiness diner and I must say that inside the restaurant looks very elegant. The service was great and the food presentations were excellent. We ordered shared appetizers for 2 persons (good), grilled lamb (I expected to be more dry but it was too soft for me, like stew). The desert was okay, I... More

A very good restaurant with good view of the canal. Great food and very good service. The server was helpful and came to check on our satisfaction. Bread was freshly baked. We were surprised that the ratings for this establishment was low. A place that is worth visiting again.

I ordered the filled portobello mushrooms and I was surprised at how good it was. Mushrooms can be a little tricky, but I loved the slight vinegar taste, which helped to balance the whole dish. The prices for this restaurant is considered average, but definitely not budget-friendly. It's close to the Dom Tower, which makes it a convenient location. There... More

Not only did we wait an hour for our food — later customers were served before us and we were told after 45 mins that they hadn't even started preparing our meals (!) — and part of the dish (mushrooms) were missing from my partner's, but we were also over-charged and this was very poorly attended to. The English-language menu... More

We stopped off at BIS for a quick bite of lunch and were very impressed by both the food and the friendly and helpful staff. Our meals were very generous portions and delicious - lovely fresh ceasar salad with plenty of crunchy cos lettuce (and no gloopy sauce!) and Dutch eggs. The atmosphere was very pleasant with a mixture of... More

I went with a large group of colleagues and a pre selected 3 course menu had been arranged. The food was interesting and delicious and service was very good. We were there for 4 hours but there were 25 of us to serve. The location us lovely too.

A luke warm starter served with bacon fat (?) My wife's beef entree was served with grizzle (quite chewy). Plus an overheated restaurant. Otherwise a pleasant place but we will not return.

I was in Utrecht for work when a colleague and I went to find dinner. We started with a highly rated restaurant near Bis, and when they had no openings, they recommended Bis. We were blown away. The staff was so attentive and the food was incredible. We started with a sampling of the starters, which was incredible. My colleague... More
