The main floor is busy and loud, but if you can stand the stairs, go upstairs. Upstairs may be a quieter place to talk and relax and still enjoy a beer and dinner. The view is great, the waiters are young and quick. The food is good, the beer is great.

If you are looking for an interesting, bustling venue with good 'pub' fare and a great list of beers, then this is the place. It's tucked away in the old part of town, but worth looking for. You may have to wait for a table, but the place is big and there's always the beer to try while you're waiting...Would recomment a visit!

I had this recommended by a local whilst staying in Utrecht. It's easy to find, and is pretty unqiue. A lot of the character of the church remains - wooden panelling, pews for seats, the organ pipes - and the tall ceilings.

It's Belgian inspired food, though I've never sen these dishes on a menu in Belgian. The photo of the brown lump in a sea of red sauce is a meatball stuffed with cheese, with tomato sauce. The presentation leaves something to be desired. Suffice to say we didn't eat here.

Drinks menu is long, but with no English translation as to what the difference is.

The best thing about this place for me - the cat.

Wandering around Utrecht looking for somewhere to eat on a Sunday evening in through the door expecting a bar but what a surprise. An old converted church with a lot of its original features, this is a real quirky unique place which I thoroughly enjoyed. Food was first class and superb beer choice.

A truly classic find that I did not expect
