Buurten ( in Dutch : Neighbourhood) is a nice little restaurant with little pretense. The food ( both lunch and dinner ) is good and tastefull, the wines are nice and the prices reasonable. A strong point is the very friendly and attentive staff , who offer an efficient and quick service. It is also one of the (too) few... More

Dropped in here while out for a walk. The Buurten is a really friendly place, with excellent waiting staff. They have a good choice of light meals. The mushroom and truffle soup was excellent, as was the Dutch Apple cake. They have a good choice of beers and wines, and are family friendly. Worth visiting.

A strange place, the menu and foods is hit and miss. Sometimes it is amazing and other times it is a bit gross (a quiche I had recently was almost nothing but onion when onion was not even listed as an ingredient). The permanent options are always very good though so if you don't fancy a gamble sick to the... More

This review covers two visits on the same day. I went here for lunch and dinner. The lunch was delicious. I had a Buurtensandwich which is very nice. The bread was delicious. It is freshly baked on-premises and the restaurant is proud of their world champion bread baker. If you appreciate fresh bread, check it out! Later the afternoon I... More

We have been to Buurten on a few occasions whilst in Utrecht - as its located in one of the cosy neighbourhoods of Utrecht. Buurten almost feels like to local hang-out for anyone - friends, families, business meetings (although there are quite a lot of children on all occasions that we were there!). It is truly "gezellig" and the food... More

Was staying close by overnight and was advised to try here by one of the locals for good value fresh food. Have to say it was a good choice. Loved the salad and the desserts were great. Relaxed but helpful staff and nice mix of ages in the restsurant. Worth a look in.

This is the place locals like to hang out. When the sun is shining the courtyard is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Food was good - if you like Dutch croquets then you will be happy here.

We live in the neighborhood of Buurten. This is a great place to come and have a drink, food and relax. Very friendly staff, great service and good food. Buurten is very family friendly, but it is discrete and it's very easy to find a table where you wouldn't even notice there are kids. Highly recommend a visit, but definitely... More

Buurten is a Dutch word for neighborhoods, but has also meaning as a verb in the sense of 'visiting'. I guess a lot of people living close to Buurten enjoy a visit there, with their small children (and lots of them). The place is very child friendly and it is rather cosy with the fireplace outside and everything. We went... More
