The food itself is ok. Not like super gourmet but fine. Prices are reasonable. But the amount of food cannot even satisfy a child and the selection of beer is extremely poor! Toilet facilities are a tad below average.

Excellent food at very reasonable prices. This place has a very short menu, but the food is very tasty and made with good ingredients. Service was a little on the poor side. Not a lot of attention from the server. However, all in all highly recommended.

Perfect, nice solid cooking with a good sense of taste and open space for looks in the kitchen. We had the offered menu, Tuna with fennel salad or gratinated Goatcheese with Crutons as starter, calf rump or hake fried on skin with different veggies. The starters were very nice (could be a bit more tuna and cheese though) but it's... More

We just popped in at this quaint place after passing by yesterday. Looking for som game, we were nicely surprised by today's 3-course special; coq au vin and some excellent fish we had never heard of (that coming from a former Norwegian commercial fisher). In sum, the taste of everything, from the quail egg served in wolf fish caviar, to... More

The food was very nice, maybe a little on the heavy side for my taste. The place is very small - but perfect for a romantic dinner.

3 well tasting dishes for 180 kr. is nothing to complain about. Nice honest food. Staff friendly although a bit forgetful on the busy night we were there. Recommended for a well tasting meal that doesn't empty your pocket!
