We ate at Utrechtsedwarstafel on a Saturday evening with 7 people. The food was simply amzing. We enjoyed each course to the fullest and especially the explanation that is given with the food but also the unique corresponding wines were simply fantastic. The restaurant is truely a hidden gem and Hans a perfect host which doesn't leave any wishes open.... More

Despite what the last reviewer said, this place is not the least bit pretentious. (La Rive is, Utrechtsedwarstafel is not.) Dining here is an experience. We were welcomed by Hans as old friends, even though this is the first (but not the last) time we have eaten here. The food was excellent, but even better was the entire scene: a... More

Over-priced and pretentious. This place has delusions of grandeur. Pleasant enough, but mediocre. Happy to eat in a place like this, but not at these exorbitant prices...

This was the first time we had visited a restaurant where the menu is chosen for you. Wow! We had friendly communication beforehand to ensure we were in the country and still ok for our booking. The whole evening was superb. We chose the fine wine option and I would highly recommend this. Each course had its own carefully selected... More

Small place with big ambitions. An exciting five course set menu plus a few extras covering everything from game to foie gras. The restaurant prides itself on wine pairing and I must say, they have good reason. Excellent wines which both brought the best in the dishes and gave an experience in themselves. It bit expensive, but well worth it.

This place was outstanding. Could not fault it in the slightest. Original, seasonal, personal, comfortable and every penny worth in taste and service. I am writing this review 3 months after my visit as my boyfriend and I regularly discuss the superb experience. I will be lucky if I ever get to relive this. Absolutely top quality.

Hans out front and Igor in the kitchen have created a marvellous dining experience. It's a set chef's menu of 3, 4 or 5 courses and wine matching with either good or best wines. Eye catching art on the walls exemplifies the tongue in cheek personality of the restaurant. Serious about food, but not pretentious. Hans serves wines you won't... More

We went to Utrechtsedwarstafel for a lovely dinner for two on 24th of December, the night we celebrate Christmas in Denmark. We had the five courses with the level 2 wines to go along. The setting in the restaurant was very casual, from the moment we walked in, to the end of our evening. We were greeted by Hans, the... More

It was the first time that we visited Hans & Igor's restaurant. We immediately liked its cozy and intimate atmosphere thank to the nice interior, candle light and friendly service.
