You have to visit this place at least to have a chance to see the completely changed overloaded former church. Nice selection of beer, food is ok. It is really crowded and it's hard to find a table sometimes, but this is very unusual experience. Be aware that you religious friends might be confused.

We've been there many times and we like this place fr dinner. The accoustic (being an old church) is impressive and the environment makes a difference. Nice selection of Belgian beers. The menu is limited but everything we tried so far was good.

The only place in the world where you now can order a Duvel "special belgium beer" (van de tap) as a draft beer. Go and taste the difference between a nomal "Duvel" and one from a bottle. Food is good and the place used to be a church which gives a great ambiance

We visited Olivier with the intention of enjoying something to eat accompanied with some Belgian beers. Unfortunately we Gaston stick to some beers as the wait for a table was very long. I do realise it was a Saturday evening but felt staff could have done a bit more to pro-Actively manage the waiting period by keeping us updated on... More

The place is quite a surprise as you enter and see the inside which is very spacious and interestingly styled. A large selection of beers to drink, my wife chose the croquettes for a light lunch and enjoyed them very much. I nice spot to enjoy for lunch, service was great and reasonable value.

Great place to visit to experience the hustle and bustle of Utrecht, all age groups (including kids) very busy, but the staff are well on top of your needs at all times, this is an old church converted to a very busy restaurant and bar, great interior decor, well worth a visit when in Utrecht.

One of the more special looking pubs in town because Olivier once was a church. They have a big list of several special beers for you to try.

Six of us had a late dinner here. Decent food selection - salads, soups, fish, mussels, meats. Outstanding selection of beer (mostly Belgian) in bottles, more limited selection on tap. Main draw for us was the building itself, a large interior room with a nice looking old wooden bar, organ upstairs on a balcony so maybe this was a church... More
