This fairly new Brasserie & bar is situated across from the Tivoli/Vredenburg music hall. It used to be a music shop (Staffhorst) but there is no sign of that now. It's very well laid out and has a modern interior. We decided to check it out for lunch and it was quite busy.

We decided to have an omelette with ricotta cheese. Never had that before... and it was very tasty indeed. The brown bread that came with it was also perfect... nice and crispy. After that we had some lemon pie/tart. It wasn't a huge serving, which was good because it had a very strong taste but tasted great. Too big a piece would have been over-powering. The cappuccino and cafe latte were perfect, so someone behind the counter/in the kitchen really knows what they are doing.

The toilets are down the back and to the right. The reason I mention this is because there is a stairway there - with a big black arrow pointing upwards... and you could make the mistake (like we did) of thinking the toilets are upstairs.

One other thing I'd like to point out. There is a counter right in front of you when you walk in. It's the checkout counter/till area and there is a sign there that states that you have to pay with either a credit card or a debit card. In other words, no cash. So, if you're someone who prefers to use cash, which is still legal of course, then realise that De Utrechter Stadsbrasserie en Bar has made your decision for you (you can't). I thought that was worth mentioning.

De Utrechter is open every day from breakfast till late night. We decided to meet for lunch here. Good choice. Very cool atmosphere. Fairly large menu with good vegan options too. Didn’t have any drinks but that list looked interesting as well.

Me and my friend wanted to have a little bottle.
Eventually we ended up at De Utrechter.
Nice selection of wines, good appetizers and great location.
What else?
Go and discover this place!

The Utrechter is located on the other side of the street from the Tivoli / Vredenburg concert hall. I knew it primarily as a breakfast & lunch place (for which it is excellent), but since we like to try out all the rstaurants in town for dinner as well, we thought we'd check it out. Though located in a rustic building, it's informal and modern on the inside, if somewhat off the beaten track. Pleasant staff, small, but very promising menu, and we were staggered by the excellent quality of the food. The chef has some real talent, and all for comparatively deecent prices, as we spent less than 50 Euros without looking at the prices. Great place ! Go there !

Visited with a group for a surprise lunch for a friend. One waitress was a bit slow and did not really seem to care about us but the other was very kind and helpful. We ordered champagne which came just in time before the birthday girl came in. Lunch was good, original dishes and good prices. Overall, atmosphere is really pleasant and the place looks nice. Go there for lunch, drinks or even an afternoon of reading/studying/working.
