Six of us had a late dinner here. Decent food selection - salads, soups, fish, mussels, meats. Outstanding selection of beer (mostly Belgian) in bottles, more limited selection on tap. Main draw for us was the building itself, a large interior room with a nice looking old wooden bar, organ upstairs on a balcony so maybe this was a church... More

Was traveling for work and stopped by here after reading reviews. Had some delicious guinea hen and nice warm belgian fries. The space (an old church) was a lot of fun, with really great decorations. The staff was really nice, the food warm, tasty and comforting, and all told, a great experience.

Good beer and good location in the centre of Utrecht. If the weather is good you can have a sit in the tables outside. Inside you are in a former church and you can have dinner with good specialties. Waiters are gentle: may be when there are a lot of people they ask you quite often if you are served

Olivier Pub Olivier at Achter Clarenburg, near Central Station at the centre side, is a really fine pub, located in a former church, some outside sitting, great interior, pleasant staff, also good for some good bites. Abundant choice of drinks. Highly recommended when you visit Utrecht.

This place is good for a lunch, cup of coffee or a night out. The items on their menu are all tasty and fairly priced. The place is beautiful, inspirational and always crowded. Awesome cafe that should be checked out!

I love this place. Any time I'm passing through Utrecht I make sure to make a stop even for just one beer. Perhaps the best thing about this place though is their decor and ambiance. Situated in a white-washed former church the interior is large and cavernous with some old ads still plastered on the walls and (I'm told) a... More
