Apart from the way they throw everything on the table, this is a cool fun experience, with over 21 salads including bread lemonade in the price. So busy right on the harbour, food good, amazing views. Well worth a visit.

In- and outside this restaurant has a cozy seating and serves great food. I like the “typical” wide selection of appetisers best in this restaurant. Not to miss, real good coffee as they own a top-end espresso machine!

Big variety and quantity of food. Tasty. Not overly expensive. Food came a bit cold. Service was very hectic and the cleanness of the place and tables was not satisfactory. Vibe was good.
