We went there to drink and it was really nice. Beautiful Bar next to the river. Good music. We didn't eat anything here. But the place is cool.

It says "Zen by day, groovy by night"! Such a cool place to relax in the sofa and enjoy food and drinks by the river during the day. At night, it is very dark with candles only, difficult to see the food you eat. However,...More

Really nice chilled atmosphere and some great things to look at like USSR bike and bomb cases. Drinks were pricey compared to everywhere else and also a difficult place to find. Would recommend if you have money to spare and not on a budget.

I went from there to drink a beer! Good price for it! The restaurant is at the river banks and is nice to stay relaxing watching the time goes by... Young people!

Absolutely loved this place. The ambiance is inviting and unintrusive. Bed yourself down and just unwind. Fd is not imaginative and drink.more pricey than most but well worth it just to lounge on the cushions by the river. An absolute must

Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.
