Terrible experience, service is poor, plates not clean. You need to ask twice to get ashtray. Also they don't serve tap water. the food was not bad but not good too. In conclusion I will avoid this place.

Went here using a groupon for a 3 course meal, with paella as the main. Sat by the waterfront right in the centre of Utrecht which is a prime location during the spring and summertime when the cafe culture really kicks off in Utrecht. Spinich...More
