This wonderful gem in Utrecht is one of my favourite places! The decor is amazing, seeing as it used to be a church. The bar serves loads and loads of beers, especially from Belgium. Their selection of spirits is also very good and I always have a great time when I go.

Great selection of beers from Belgian but also local beers are available. Changing beer on tap which gives you the chance to try something new with every visit. The staff is knowledgable about beers and some of the bar staff seems to be even specialized in making their own craft beers which helps finding a good beer for everybody's taste.... More

This restaurant/coffeehouse is located in the very centre of Utrecht. Shops and shopping malls at walking distance. The place itself is very cosy with a beautiful, stylish interior. It offers a wide variety of food and drinks with a Belgian twist. Reasonable prices!

Perfect, still as expected. Perfect selection of mainly Belgium beers, many of them fresh from the draught. Food as appropriate, many dishes prepared or accompanied by that obvious beer taste. Go for it and not only see it, but more over taste it for yourself :)

The beers are great and staff is really friendly. It's always crowded in here so prepare to stand at the bar. Don't eat here, it's just not good. A portion of "bitterballen" will do, but already the olives are not tasty at all. Enjoy the atmosphere, drink and relax!

If you're looking for casual and delicious, you have found it. Not to mention the history and eclectic nature of it. Worth going to on a visit.

Croquettes were very nice! Only lunch menu is served before 5pm. If you want a main meal you have to wait until after 5pm. This could've been made clearer!!

Utrecht is an amazing village and in its center is an excellent bar/restaurant that is housed in a former church. The selection of beers is excellent and the staff is very passionate about helping you make the right choice. We only had appetizers which were good(not great) so I really can't comment on the quality of the food for lunch... More
