No plans for second day of Christmas? FICO offers dishes from all over the world, with complementary wines. The interior of the restaurants is gorgeous and will surely add a special touch to a festive evening. FICO still has a few tables available for an exclusive evening out. The restaurant serves a seven course chefs dinner for €72,5 per person

Restaurant Concours

Concours is a hidden gem located on the Biltstraat! The restaurant cooks with seasonal products, that give the dishes a pure flavorful sensation. Let the crew advise you on a good glass of wine for the evening. Concours is open on Christmas Eve and 2nd Christmas day.

Keuken van Gastmaal

Another good recommendation located on the Biltstraat! De Keuken van Gastmaal is open on the second Christmas day. Especially for Christmas the most ordered dishes of the past seven years will be on the menu.

Stop food waste and save food at Instock! In December, they serve an extra festive menu, consisting of four delicious dishes, all made from ‘saved’ food. On the first and second Christmas day Instock serves a special culinary and circular Christmas menu. Be a food hero and book a table at Instock!

De Utrechter

De Utrechter is a brasserie and bar in the center of Utrecht. Meet up with a few friends for a nice Christmas dinner, on a central location. On the 1st and 2nd Christmas day the restaurant will reserve a flamboyant Christmas brunch from 11.00 to 15.00. And in the evening a festive 4-course dinner is served.

ElVi is one of my favourites as well. I love the restaurant to celebrate a special happening with a lovely dinner. The lovely and welcoming crew, good food and great wines make it one of the finest restaurants in Utrecht. Second Christmas day is full booked unfortunately. So be on time to book a table on first Christmas day.
