this is a nice place to chill out with friends or meet for discussing business. The service is ultimate, the food and beverages are too good. I guess they also have birthday party packages for small groups which is great. The staff get 5 stars for their warm hospitality great service.

Great food, moles and fritts, and a good selection of cold beers. Prices are a bit steep and smoking still allowed inside (not used to that anymore)

An amazing collection of good beers. The best was indeed the terrace with view on the creek. I did not like the fact that people were smoking inside instead.

The atmosphere is great for gathering with friends or business partners. The beer is very good but the prices are a little steep. Food is excellent as is the service.
