We just had some beers, and they offered a tasting selection of four different beers. A great offer for a beer lover. Nice out door seating, and friendly and swift staff. Can definitely recommend it. The food also looked very good..

Overpriced but the food was alright. The staff seem to have no idea what is going on. Good luck getting the attention of one of the 7 wait staff or getting your tables complete order delivered within 20min of the first main course dish arriving....More
