Très Chique: Polman’s Huis

If you’d have preferred to live a century ago in Paris, you’ll definitely enjoy Polman’s Huis. The imposing ballroom with its 10m-high ceiling could easily serve as a set for a French costume drama. Today, this stylish restaurant is the place to go for anyone with refined tastes and the cash to support them. If you find the nearly regal ambience tiresome, you can always keep yourself entertained by checking out the large windows and mirrors, and enjoying the flowers!

Polman’s Huis is housed in an imposing, 10 meters high Ballroom with large windows and mirrors. This make this establishment to a very pleasant meeting place, if you go back to Paris in the 1930’s. For over 25 years, it has become an institution that no longer from Utrecht is indispensable. In the restaurant you can have lunch or dinner. Or just a cup of coffee, or a great high tea. The chef enjoys working with fresh products and herbs.

With this weather….. it’s sóo cool inside…!! And that in more then one way! Culinary refinement, contemporary influences, always affordable and a real great personal service. Brasserie Polman’s Huis is an institution. That makes this, from almost day one, my favorite place in Utrecht…. and the rest of Holland.

Experience a stylish way in Utrecht!
