I wish we were able to get online and check out the trip adviser reviews before our group of 6 decided to have dinner here. All the negative feedback below is still true. Only four others in the restaurant, but they seated us at an uncomfortable corner, then ignored us. Throughout the meal we had I chase them up for... More

This was a pretty bad choice, the pizzeria next door would have been much safer. I'm saying this because the food was horrible and very fat. Especially avoid pork feet! The service wasn't very nice either, they were acting very preoccupied with anything else than making us feel welcome.

The restaurant looked good from the outside and the menu looked adequate. Our initial waiter was good but we had a different one half way through. I had moules marinere for starter which was very nice and my husband had asparagus which he enjoyed. For the main meal I ordered macaroni cheese. When it arrived there was a dish of... More

It's difficult to have a great evening if you have the feeling that you are not welcomed. We have always had the same problem in this restaurant and eventually we have stopped going despite liking...sorry, loving the food. The problem being that every time we went there the waiter, no natter which waiter, told us that the restaurant was fully-booked,... More

A cool evening, so we decided to eat inside. Pleasantly surprised with the open airy, upper floor, dining area with views over the river. Food was generally good but nothing exceptional. Thought about making this a 2 star review because of the very off-hand service. However despite this we still had an enjoyable meal.....

Food was very nice. Their specialty seems to be grilling (meat & fish meals are very good). The service was ok, but not as good & nice as we experienced the last couple of days in Spain.

We were for lunch, so asked fish, but people that were there for dinner talked good about fondues. Food was decent and so was the price.
