A tribute to the seasons

Hemel & Aarde can be found in the Polman’s Huis in the city centre of Utrecht, under the same roof as Hotel The Nox. Starting from Thursday october 22, our restaurant will only be open for the Stars Align Special in The Nox Hotel.


Vito Reekers cooks with respect for nature and common sense. The menu is determined by what the earth has to offer at the time. Day in day out. For dinner we serve a menu of 4 or 6 courses. We also have a menu with dishes that can be ordered individually.

The signature of sommelier Isabel van Bueren can be found in our wine list. It contains of a wide range of wines with a European origin, with extra attention for her own roots: Portugal.

Our menu’s will soon be available online. Curious? We already show some of our dishes on Instagram.
