Food Good Service Poor

Our group of five received a warm greeting and initial fine service. Things deteriorated when the wait staff's attention was diverted to a larger private party. The starters were ok when finally delivered. We had to wait almost an hour for our very good main courses with no explanation. Not sure... read more

And I come from Singapore where we are world famous for our chili crabs!! The crab dish I had in the Fishmarket was the King Crab and it was real huge. It was cooked with a little bit of oil, garlic and lemon but it was very delicious. Lots of succulent meat even in the pincers. Enough to be shared.... More

The creamy salmon chowder and salt licorice with fennel dessert are not to be missed. Lovely Finnish modern decor, elegant, leisurely, quiet.

We had a nice lunch in FishMarket (June 2015), the seabass had crispy skin and the fish was moist. The crayfish was very tasty, but the salad had a bit too much dressing for my liking. Nice wines, not a big selection though. Good service in general and friendly staff. All in all a pleasant lunch. Nice decoration, a lot... More

I came in with high expectations, also due to the suggestion of our hotel staff. The venue is indeed nice, with good care for the details. The menu also promises to be pretty good. Unfortunately, the food ended up being rather disappointing. The starter was extremely acidm really too much for me. The lobster I had contained some black stuff,... More

Visited the restaurant mainly for the oysters. One of the only restaurants serving a good choice of oysters and champagne. The fish roe and natural prawns were good. Nice white interiors and clean restaurant.

This is not far from the open market area and has both inside and outside dining. There are some great local dishes as well as the usual suspects from around the world. Well priced

I had the 3-course chef's choice menu and each and every course was delicious, beautifully plated, and served with polish. Don't let the basement location reduce your expectations. It's a very modern restaurant with bright walls and modern decorations. I wish I could remember the details, but I started this review weeks ago, right after eating there, but wasn't able... More

my partner and I shared a meal in this restaurant recently. The lobster (€ 59) was well cooked but poorly presented. The vegetables, undercooked including one asparagus of which only the head could be eaten were at the bottom of a dish containing the lobster and some roasted potatoes placed for some reasons on a sheet of newspaper. The sea... More

Recommended by our hotel the restaurant did not disappoint. Food was good although my wife and I regretted starting with the sharing seafood platter as soon as we saw the Lobster served to the guy on the table next to us. Service was good, wine a little pricey although we did have 2 bottles. Not a fine dining experience but... More
