But for food and drink, Utrecht is the ideal hotspot! There are countless restaurants and bars. We selected our top 3 places to eat/drink in Utrecht!
Luc Utrecht is without a doubt our number 1 of bars in Utrecht. This is truly a unique place. Outside it looks like an ordinary brasserie but when you step inside, you feel that it is a special place. The first thing that stands out are the many plants that determine the décor. The interior is dark but cozy. There is a lot of attention to detail. And the best of all? The food there is super fresh, original and of a top level! We tried the‘Chicken brioche bun’and the day soup with delicious homemade beet hummus. Both to lick fingers at! Also the‘Chicken brioche bun’was the best burger we have ever eaten. They are all dishes that you need to have tasted to understand what we mean. 10/10 for the food and the décor! A real must!
Comptoir Libanais is a restaurant chain that is mainly known in the United Kingdom, but also in Utrecht there is a branch. You will find Lebanese specialties on the menu. The dishes are surprising but deliciously delicious! The fresh mint tea with rose flavour is recommended. That’s addictively good! The décor is cozy kitschy, colorful and takes you into another world. The décor is inspired by the markets of the Middle East. You’d like to sit here for a few hours. It’s the perfect setting for teatime!
Jozef Utrecht is a nice place to have a nice drink after noon with a snack or a pastry. The recommendations are the different (Belgian) beers and the brownies! Of course you can also just have breakfast, lunch and dinnerhere. Everything is made as fresh as possible and the open kitchen gives you a unique perspective on the preparation of your food. The décor is sober but cosy with a touch of Scandinavian inspiration. Extra: they have a wide play area so you can go there with your kids!
