The restaurant is located in one of the most charming places in Utrecht: in the quiet end of the Oudegracht canal, directly by the quai side. You may access the restaurant from the canal side or from Twijnstraat through the upstairs pub. The restaurant has seating at three slightly different levels, cosy lamps over the tables, og a generally relaxed... More

Heeren van Leeuw has a very nice location and a cosy atmosphere. Very friendly and knowdgeable service incl interaction with the chef who clearly likes what he's doing. We (6) all had a three course surprise menu and were asked for any dislikes so you won't get any unpkeasant surprises. Also took the accompanying wines (recommended!). The food is really... More

Good food and wine. Maybe more suitable a bit of an older audience but if you like rustique ambience you could go there anyway. The prices are average and not to much for what you get. Most of the time they have some things like dear or rabbit or wild boar on the menu

The restaurant is in a perfect location, just in front of the canal; unluckily, if you don't get the table close to the window, you barely see it and apart from that amazing view the place makes you feel you really are in a cellar underground. Waiters are very kind, but we had an annoying issue: when we were pointing... More

Dropped into the restaurant at 9 to be welcomed by the /chef Steve; who with little direction other than wanting meat, whipped up a chicken dish that was amazing. great salad and vegetables, port wine sauce; added a fresh strawberry with creme tart dessert and good glass of white french wine. so easy, quick and delicious. Will be booking there... More
