The place is situated in a beautiful house. Great decor, high ceilings etc. Service is friendly, but food is really average. They would do well with an update as the location has potential to be a great dinner or lunch place.

Had dinner here while staying at hotel. Prices were reasonable and food was ok. Nothing spectacular but then you get what you pay for. Not much atmosphere. Ok for a business dinner if staying alone but much better choices nearby if visiting as a couple.

We have booked a table for 7 at 19.30 and first course was served at 20.30. All of the dishes were medium to poor with the duck being almost uncooked. Service was slow. We would not recommend this place for dinner

We like to give a good impression of what Grand Café Luden wants to be, namely: people from Utrecht and the visitors to our city feel at home. That can on the terrace at the front or back, at the bar or in the large and enchanting Hall of mirrors. With us you can enjoy a cup of coffee, a drink with or without snack, a quick meal or an extensive menu: Welcome!
