This is a wonderful bar in a converted church (although this is not apparent from the outside). Many of the original features have been kept, including the imposing church organ. The bar serves an extensive range of Belgian, Dutch and other beers, both on tap and in bottles. We called in three times - it was always busy and extremely... More

definitely worth going to while you're in Utrecht. amazing exterior and atmosphere. The beers are great, each one with a story you can read. The meals were good, even the vegetarian ones. I'd recommend the fondue.

Next to the central station, this belgian pub offers a great variety of beers. The staff is really friendly and the food is very tasty, either you want dinner or just something to bite with your beers. The inside of the place is amazing as it looks like a church!

Olivier is some kind of a legend in Utrecht. Located in an old church, a perfect (albeit crowded) atmosphere is guaranteed, the beer selection is almost unsurpassed. The food is not its main attraction, but is quite good and reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit (or more).

Olivier in Utrecht is very special as it used to a church. This bar has an amazing beer selection. Very central, nice atmosphere, a bit noisy but worth a visit. We really enjoyed it!! Will go back there for sure.

Arriving at 2pm on a Saturday, the place was already packed. In a good way though. Had a nice bussy way about it. Very animated. The place looks great on the inside. Plenty of seats to be had as well. Went there with a friend. Started with tea and cappuccino. After a while switched to a nice red wine and... More

If you are looking for an interesting location, good vibe, great food and beers then look no further. I was informed it was a 20 minute wait for a table and although it was very busy on a Tuesday evening I was seated with a drink in under 5. Service was excellent and I had one of the nicest veal...

Amazing place as it's a deconsecrated church with organ pipes and statues a plenty. There's a bewildering array of Belgian beers with incredible names so try a few if you're not driving! They were very accommodating finding us a table for 8 when they were very busy. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The frites are to die for!... More

After reading the reviews here we decided to eat dinner her. Entered the room and ran out. This is not a restaurant. It´s a bar. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. We came back the following day to eat lunch, which was better. Good food, although nothing special. The decor is very nice. However the acoustics that are awesome... More
