Discover the stories of iconic restaurants
Restaurant Karel 5 and Bistro Karel 5 are housed in the beautiful complex of Grand Hotel Karel V with beautiful gardens. The complex dates back to the 14th century and reopened in 1999 after an impressive renovation. Located on Catharijnesingel, Grand Hotel Karel V is a landmark in Utrecht.
Restaurant Karel 5 stands for elegant dining, accompanied by a young professional team with our Chef de cuisine Leon Mazairac and the experienced maître sommelier Johan Kragtwijk. Bistro Karel 5 with its lunch, dinner and drinks menu is more casual classic. We are the ideal meeting point in Utrecht for ‘business, foodies and friends’.
