If you love cocktails, this is the place where you should (but also not) go. You should go there is you like fancy cocktails, perfectly served in the right glass and with super nice decorations. You should not go there if you like to taste some alcool in your cocktail and not having to drink ten of them before you... More

Very interesting and tasty cocktails. I was missing some standard and classic drinks but you had enough choices which resembled the original drinks. Definitely the best cocktails in the city!!

Not everyone knows, but there are some street tango lessons just on the street in front of the Zussen cafe

I'm not a cocktail fan. Those in our party who are raved about it. The food was above average and the dessert was excellent, but it's an odd feeling when a place is quite full and you're the only people eating. It's very much a place to meet for drinks, especially cocktails, and none the worse for that. They don't... More

We had a meeting in this trendy bar and it was very noisy. We could hardly understand eachother. The echo in the bar is tremendous and the music is rather loud. We only had coffee, tea and red wine and that was average. The personnel is very quick with cleaning the tables and taking your order. I did not like... More

A very tasty interior and surprising, new cocktails. The 'Dionysos' was a new discovery to me, based on Greek mastica; very well balanced. Very nice staff and a qualified bar tender. They'll see us again, for sure.

A large range of cocktails and finger points available to choose from! Once a week, at least, there's live music (salsa, dj, etc.) and it can get quite crowded at times.

We needed to find somewhere quickly to feed the kids on a busy Friday night and chose here. It looks like and probably is a trendy cocktail bar, but it also includes a kids playroom in the lower floor, with table football and video games and a ball-pit - it wasn't flash but it kept ours happy for long enough!...

The restaurant closes early and then 'Zussen' is just the place to be seen when you're young and chilling out in Utrecht. We had pre-ordered as part of a walking dinner tour and were served a delicious dessert (after first being brushed away with: 'sorry, the kitchen is closed'). The place has been really nicely decorated with natural elements (wood,... More
