Nice traditional food for a cheap price!

I went for lunch to carlisse and i can confirm this is a good place to have a fast healthy lunch. Everything is home made and i like the fact that the lunch menu is small, this shows this place has fresh food. Bianca is a friendly waiter! I had a home made quiche and i would rate it 4.5/5.... read more

Me together with several friends went on a Saturday evening to eat at this bar/restaurant. The food is good we tried several things (best was by far the tortilla)... But the service.... I can't really believe that there is a place the world with such bad service...totally and completely disappointed

Service with a twist! I love the laid back approach of the owner. He will really do anything to please his guests. Great selection of Gins. Food is the tipical cafe eatery, convincing enough for it's price.

Great home made ice tea and nacho's. The rest of the food is average to good. At busy moments you have to wait quit long for your food to be served.

I'm glad i stopped by this bar; a daily updated chalk board with only their specialties, tandoori salad, authentic Caesar salad and others for a decent price. Happy funny times with appropriate hosts! make sure to drop on an afternoon.

Excellent food for a very friendly price. Decent portions. Great salads and very tasty pasta. Every week different "quiches". Real nice staff that is also multi-lingual. Very cosy atmosphere. In summertime the terrace is a must-visit. Also try the homemade iceteas. Great place always crowded with the most beautiful people in town.

Excellent and a bit experimental in a very trendy setting. Only a small selection of dishes though.
