I hear you thinking: Italy meets Asia, what?! But even though it may sound a little odd, it is really a fun concept. At the new restaurant The Jack Rabbit, you can choose between a variety of Asian and Italian dishes. This restaurant is located on the Neude and is really an addition to the square. First restaurant ‘Delphi’ was located in the building, but after a reconstruction from the inside it is now completely transformed into a super stylish restaurant. We like it!

Costs: €13 – €23 for a main dish. Location: Neude 30D


One of the best things to start with is that The Jack Rabbit has the luxury of a very big terrace. With heaters, cozy seats and stylish bar tables they created a great outside spot right in the heart of Utrecht. We started off our night with some craft beers while enjoying watching the people passing by. Alcohol makes hungry so we chose some bites to start with, first the prawns with sweet and sour chili sauce and as a second the duck beef croquette bun with curry mayonnaise, herbs and cabbage. The prawns were especially really amazing! As main dishes we chose one Asian and one Italian dish, so we could experienced the whole concept of The Jack Rabbit.


Something we immediately recognized was their amazing tableware. They use a lot of different tableware, one even more beautiful than the other. We’ve experienced that it really cheered us up when we saw all those fine-looking tables. Another plus is the comfy corners they’ve created inside the restaurant. From long tables until comfy couches: If you are looking for a chill spot to drink a coffee and read your newspaper, The Jack Rabbit is a great place to do so!


  • Their beautiful tableware and amazing interior
  • Lots of nice decorations (think fresh flowers) all over the restaurant
  • The comfortable terrace at one of the most atmospheric squares of Utrecht


  • The concept (Asian meets Italian) is not completely clear on the first point of view
