European in Utrecht

Intimate and decoratively sparse, Concours is a great choice for a gourmet meal. It's romantic without being stuffy, comparatively affordable and dishes are presented with great aplomb. There's no choice – just put yourself in the hands of celebrated chef Alex Zeelenberg for the day's menu based on fresh, locally sourced produce.

For Masterchef wannabes, private cooking workshops can be arranged on Sundays, and there are themed monthly masterclasses.
