We managed to get a table in the bar area, hidden away in a quiet corner. It made a big difference to usual - it's very noisy, sometimes unbearably so. Food and drinks were nice although the veggie menu was very boring this time. Staff are always lovely.

Myself and my fiance had lunch here. We ordered a toastie and bitterballen- both were scrumptious! Such excellent value for money too, would highly recommend. We sat outside which was on a quiet street as no cars were allowed down, but plenty of people cycling/ walking to keep you occupied. Bar lady was very pleasant too :)

Springhaver provides it all. Good movies, good food and a very nice place to hang out with friends for a drink. The atmosphere is so relaxed and even when you walk in alone, you'll find yourself in a conversation with anyone. This could well be my favorite bar in town.

Really great ambiance and kind waiters who served a big meal for a spare price. Preparing the meal seemed to take a little bit long, but with all of the nice paintings and decorations we weren't bored.

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Karel V and this place is right outside the back entrance. We walked by it every day to head into town and always saw people eating there. Very nice place with very nice decorations. Room inside and outside to eat. Very good service and prices not too bad!

Very popular with locals, the bar is lively and fun. With nice weather you can also sit in front of the bar, in the sun. The restaurant side is also cool, with reasonably priced simple local food. Why not top the whole evening up with a nice movie in very cool old-school cinema setting.

Simple snacks but a great range of beers. This is a friendly bar used by young and old, locals and visitors. It is just far enough away from the old town centre to avoid the crowds. Highly recommended.

I have been here a couple of times with friends and it's still one of my top 3 bars in the city of Utrecht. Lazy chairs, couches, tables, newspapers, cool posters, back entrance to the cinema next door, old school music... Could sit here for hours :)

Place where alternative people and students gather to hang out and enjoy good food and drinks. It's always busy. Plus you can go and enjoy a movie after drinks and/or dinner.
