Our beautiful city is full of great places for unforgettable evenings. And that includes good food, at least that’s what we think. That’s why this blog features a selection of five of our favorite luxury restaurants in Utrecht.
Culinary delights in the midst of nature on a historic estate. Expect the crème de la crème here, because Restaurant Voltaire has a Michelin star for a reason. Guaranteed quality and a fine atmosphere. The chef’s menu consists of six courses and includes mackerel with beetroot and nori.
Beef with salsify and sweet potato and a delicious dessert of chocolate, hibiscus, and cherry. The à la carte dinner also has a lot of delicacies! Like duck liver with Jerusalem artichoke, langoustine with pumpkin and kohlrabi. Or how about turbot (round flatfish) with smoked dill, leek, and truffle. Water teeth! If you really want to pamper yourself on a luxurious evening then staying on the estate is definitely a must.

Just a few meters from the famous Dom church you will find restaurant Simple Utrecht. A name they like to honor because the concept is simple. But that certainly doesn’t make it any less luxurious! Every month they serve a different menu and that is guaranteed to be enjoyable. What to expect? Dishes such as Tartelet Truffle, snow crab and tropical green curry.
The whole is beautifully reserved and tastes delicious natural. The restaurant is part of the hotel and is ideal if you want to explore the city.
