My brother booked a table here tonight. Pleasant staff slow service. I had the lamb. Full of sinews and could barely cut it. I realise that shoulder is fatty, but not full of gristle and sinews. I made a comment to the waitress about the...More

From the outside this looks very nondescript. But that's what makes it exclusive. Inside everything is also pretty down-to-earth as if you've walked into an old French family restaurant. The food is truly outstanding. We had the menu fixe where each course came with a...More

I have stayed in Utrecht 20 times over the years, and have eaten in many restaurants. Restaurant de Garde is definitely one of the best! Located in a lovely old building in the very centre of Utrecht close to the pedestrian area, it is a...More
