Our intention was to bar hop, we stayed at Utopia all night. Great vibes, chilled and easy going. The food was delicious and the cocktails were fabulous. The floor layout was great for a small group of people or large.

My partner and I were told about Utopia and we weren’t disappointed. The food was great and reasonably priced and after our meal we went and chilled out on the beds which overlooked the river. Would visit again if I were in the area!

I visited Utopia during the day when they promise a ‘zen vibe’ ... it certainly delivered that. I spent a good few hours lying there sipping delicious drinks whilst reading my book and admiring the view. I was disappointed that yoga is not on during...More

Very chilled out bar. Shame there is no yoga in September as the view would be awesome. Staff very friendly and reasonably priced.

I first walked here for dinner from my hotel. & missed finding it altogether. The small front bar and seating area conceals a large garden setting behind. Rustic & quirky decor is a solid setting for the delicious food that follows. I went back several...More

This is a mostly open bar with more than tapas as food on offer. Situated on the banks of the river, it has covered and open areas to sit in small or large groups. As a result it has a mix of cemented areas and...More

Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.
