This is a perfect place to find good and particular beers. The pub is inside what's left of a church and this makes it unique... but terribly noisy with the echo of the crowd talking.

The selection of Belgian beers - brewn by monks and by far the most tasty you'll ever find - is fine and you can have food too. Unique is the location: an intact 18th century 'hiding' church of catholics who were forced to accept a...More

I had a beer here in 2012 and never forgot it. On taking my family there for lunch i 2017, I was not disappointed. The selection of beers puts most bars to shame and the food was tasty and well presented. The ambience (an old...More

We sure do! We're also the first bar in the world to serve Duvel on draught. The beer contains little gluten, so even with a gluten allergy you should be able to drink it. Come over and try it out sometime! ^Stan

Excellent beer and dishes. Perfectly quick service and efficient staff. Loved the interior and atmosphere. Portions reasonable as well as prices. As a whole I was satisfied.

If you like Belgian beers you're at the right place. It's a nice building (old church) with high ceilings. But very noisy because of that. Very detailed information about all beers but only in Dutch.

I hope you've had a good time, even though it might have been a bit noisy. We see the noise as the sound of 'gezelligheid';) Hope to see you again soon! ^Stan

100% worth to visit, I don't know many pubs in churches, therefore it is really interesting experience to drink in a one. Really big variety of beers, staff is fine however it may get crowded during the weekends therefore service is not always so quick...More

I got to visit about thirty pubs in Utrecht during my month long stay, and I must say that Cafe Olivier stands out. The decor (being a converted church) cannot be beaten, it is absolutely unique. The staff consists of students and also students who...More

The owners of this delightful pub restaurant have one in Leiden in a building that used to be St. Elisabeth's hospital. Here in Utrecht, the building used to be (until 1125...yeah, we're talking major history here) the only parish church. Times change, and this is...More
