    Having had a poor experience at one of the “downtown” restaurants, we went local - and glad we did! The food at Blij was fantastic - we had an excellent meal: such lovely ingredients and expertly cooked. A triumph. Would highly recommend going!

    Wonderful setting with a very good idea, the sam sam menu, two small portions per course, and all very well presented and very tasteful!

    Lovely little restaurant. Delicious food. Loved the way you could have 2 small starters and 2 small mains etc. Great idea. All 4 of us loved each dish

    One of my favorite restaurants in Utrecht! Good food for sharing for a good price! The location is a bit hidden, but that makes it a hidden gem ;) Would recommend to everyone!

    A stylish and cozy restaurant with amazing food and excellent service, definitely worth the walk from the city centre. Blij smiling and friendly staff made us feel at home and also helped us with regards to some food allergy. Delicious food with a smart option allowing you to pick half portions and taste different dishes! Highly recommended!

    Delicious food. Excellent service provided by Isa who was courteous throughout & patiently translated the menu for us. We were a group of 5 and we all enjoyed our meals. Great idea to be able to split the courses into two so you get to taste more of the lovely dishes which were very reasonably priced. Great ambience too.

    Nice, quite small restaurant with very good service. We were there on Saturday evening and it was pleasantly busy, with both of us taking samsam dishes, we were expecting to wait long, but we were nicely surprised with very quick service! Food was nicely presented and truly delicious. Our favorites: - Hurricane shrimp - Tonijn en wasabi - Hertenbiefstuk With the 2 of us we ate well and enough, had some drinks in between and paid only 75 euros for 3 courses and 5 different dishes per person!

    The restaurant is very crowded, It is hard to walk as the tables are so close together. They could have also had more staff working, it was hard to reach a waitress. Food was great!
