underrated!

Lovely small restaurant that is not very well known in Groningen. The sea food is incredible and the cheese fondue is definitely a winner.

Definitely not cheap, but worth every penny! The menu is changing frequently, not to long and complicated, friendly staff. Location is not easy to find for non-Groningers ;-)

I went here several times already. The foods were so good. I chose this place because it served only seafood, and I can say it is safe for a moslem to have dinner there.
