Really like the building and it was great that it seemed to merge in with the local fish shops on the beach. The staff were super friendly and informative. We enjoyed the exhibitions and loved the space.

We went there to see the exposed art works and had first an excellent meal in their restaurant. As already known the view of the seafront and fisherman's ships are interesting, the staff was very friendly, open and helping.

This is a beautiful building - full of light. We really enjoyed the Feiler exhibition. Not an artist we had heard of before but great variety of artwork. Coffee wasn’t great but otherwise a good visit.
