It's nice to see a church converted into a space you actually want to be in! Olivier is my favorite place for a drink in Utrecht. They have a large selection of beers, good food, and the service is well above average.

This is the best bar and restaurant that I visited in Utrecht! The fist thing to highlight is the decoration: The place was a church in the past and it has retained its decoration. So, you feel like having a beer during the mass. Great decoration!
I had some mussels for diner and they were just delicious! The service was really good even though the place was really packed on a Saturday evening. Furthermore, their local beer is delicious! I would return more than one time for sure!!!!

Olivier is a converted church, but retains some of the religious fixtures and iconography which makes it an interesting venue for sure. Good menu of Belgian dishes on offer though limited choice for vegetarians and when the food is served the portions are quite substantial and tasty. I tasted some of the best chips I have ever eaten - crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Each dish has a recommended beer to accompany it - the overall selections of beers and lagers are impressive. I was told that the restaurant is busy, especially at the weekend - we had a 20 minute wait for a table, but it was worth it. Don't expect to have a quiet meal as the high ceilings allow the chatter to soar to the rafters, however we didn't find the noisy level too intrusive. it certainly gave the venue a good buzz! Recommended.

What a lovely spot! The restaurant is inside an old church and filled with history, old signs etc. Great place to visit and come for a drink, although you can also eat here (which we did). Food was fine, service ok too! Mainly we were blown away by the awesome interior and for that reason would return.
