Hi Camille,

If you like tapas, you should definitely check El Mundo (Voorstraat 18). It's a great tapas restaurant and really affordable too. The same goes for PK bar & kitchen, great for lunches or drinks (Oudegracht 101).
My personal favourite wine bar is Talud 9 (Donkere Gaard 9), they serve wine based on what taste you like. And for a good cup of coffee I'd recommend Barbeton (Korte Jansstraat 13).

Enjoy!

Hi Camille,
Welcome to Utrecht, and I think and tell you right away you are on the right place. Utrecht much nicer and cosier then Amsterdam where are to many tourists.
There are so many restaurants, you better check Tripadvisor.
For pubs you can go to Cafe Belgie, they got many sorts of beers!! And a few good dishes also vegetarian ones.
In the Twijnstraat(street) there are a few nic pubs/ restaurants. Louis Hartlooper Complex is a old police station where you van watch a movie/ drinks/ eat.
Also a cinema/ nice place to eat/ meet Springhaver cafe or t Hoogt.
Have a pleasant stay you both!!

See you

Hi Camille! There are many great spots in and around Utrecht! Check out http://uutflukt.nl/explore-utrecht/ for a little discount booklet to make it easier & ofc cheaper to visit those spots. Check out the map on the website, and all the places in the book are highly recommended! Not sure when you are going, but canoeing on the canals of Utrecht is one of my favorite activities if the weather is great. Start your day having breakfast at Cornelis (with uutflukt 2-for-1 breakfast- and you can buy the book there). Walk from there around the area Wittenvrouwen through Oudwijk towards Wilhelmina park. Walk from there towards Syr - a Dutch-Syrian restaurant that has hired Syrian refugees and gives them a place to work. The food is awesome and with uutflükt you will get lunch+drink for just € 15. After lunch you can take the canoe out for a trip in the canals, that renting place in uutflükt is close by Syr. If you like classical movies I recommend Filmtheather 't Hoogt in the evening (2-for-1 ticket with uutflükt). Great pubs are for example cafe Lebowski (they have an real giraffe on the inside). I also like Stan&Co for both food and drinks! Both places are in the city center. Beers&barrels is also great for burgers and beers (and wine). The have a real cozy (and often crowded) place by the canals. If you like to eat there in the weekend I recommend to reserve a table. [ran out of characters, check the next message aslo]

The day after I would suggest having a filter coffee taste at Koffie Leute. They have been recognized as one of the best coffee places in Utrecht (even been covered by Monocle). With uutflükt you will get a discount there as well. Broei is good for lunch (10% of with uutflükt) or Klein Berlin is also close by there for beers or coffee/cake. In the city center there are many cozy streets. My favorite shop is Dille&Kamille. A little bit outside the main shopping street. Also Waar - for its Fair Trade products is one of my favorites.

As you see I could go on forever... definitely check out uutflükt! It's a great way to discover Utrecht with tons of discounts all over.

If you like a fairly good restaurant with special attention to vegetables and good wine, I will like to recommand Le Jardin, Mariaplaats 42. You have to make a reservation. Look for: le jardin utrecht reserveren.

Hello Camille,

There are so many restaurants and bars in Utrecht. If the weather is good, go and sit at the terrace of de Oudegracht (you will sit next to the canal, very nice).

What kind of food do you like? A very good Italian restaurant is this one:

This one is okay, the interior is fantastic:

You can check this site for any restaurant in Utrecht, with real comments from the people who have been eaten in the restaurants:

I hope you will have a great time in Utrecht!
