Le Connaisseur (Oudegracht 59): This restaurant is based in a monumental building in the city centre of Utrecht. Delicious food and a great terrace in summer. The lovely vaulted ceilings inside must be seen to be believed.

Wilhelminapark (Wilhelminapark 65): The wonderful Wilhelminapark is the backdrop to this beautiful building inspired by the Amsterdam School and English country mansions. This restaurant serves exclusive lunches and dinners.

Restaurant Goesting (Veeartsenijpad 150): This restaurant is located in an old veterinary school building. Top-quality food and wines are served in beautiful modern surroundings.

Voorstraat: This bustling street boasts a variety of culinary delights. From Italian to Spanish, Argentine, French, Indonesian, Greek and Vietnamese, you will find whatever you feel like!

De Oude Muntkelder (Oudegracht 112): This is the address for the best sweet and savoury pancakes in Utrecht.

Oudean (Oude gracht 99): A traditional restaurant in a gorgeous 13th-century castle. Knights and their ladies once lingered where you will now find the bar and restaurant. Not cheap but definitely special.

Havana (Oudkerkhof 29): Wonderful Cuban food served in a lovely Cuban atmosphere. Every weekend, the tables are pushed aside after dinner for some serious dancing.

Mi Madre (Neude 31): Typically Spanish, so there’s plenty of garlic in the lovely hot and cold dishes and tapas. Guests are even welcome to draw on the walls after dinner...

De Garde (Drieharingenstraat 10/12): Recommended for culinary experts. New dishes based on fresh local produce are served on a regular basis. Excellent wine menu.

Eetcafé Hemmingway (Janskerkhof 6): With a beautiful view of the Janskerkhof cemetery, this place serves excellent French food at a good price. If you are struggling to choose, we recommend ‘de wandeling’ (the walk) as a starter.
