“Worst seafood restaurant in town”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Dont fool yourself! Not FRESH seafood!
Went there today, lovely restaurant with nice decor but for what? if the food is not good....
Worst crabs I have seen! Probably ruined... Also the clamps where very dry... Probably from yesterday! Didn't eat none of that... Only the shrimps were ok!
Added a talk with the waiter that didn't excuse for any...
In the end payed a lot for worst seafood in my live!
For seafood you should go for Tapas or Munich... This one never again!

“Attention to details”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I find the restaurant very charming, even though it is not a romantic site. The food is good but I was expecting more. The waiters are friendly and attentive.

“Quality Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

It was the first time I went to Ostradamus and I was delighted. Mostly because of the service and ambient in the dining room. The food was very good as well but it didn't meet my (high) expectations. Yet, it's a very good place to visit.

“Popular, but not good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

I visited the restaurante a couple of times: an anniversary and a small birthday lunch.

In both occasions we chose from the menu different meals, but were not impressed.
The food is passable, with low quality garnishes; my grilled fish arrived lukewarm and my girlfriend's rice was a bit underdone. This is a tad more worrisome when you factor in that the food arrived in two batches and the price, which tips the scales unfavourably.

I have no complaints from the staff's attitude, however the service was a bit slow in a room that was somewhat empty.

The decoration feels a bit too much and doesn't complement the food's theme at all.

Overall, it is a popular restaurant without any actual appeal or quality.
