“First visit great, second poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

We returned to this restaurant after a great first visit. However it was too early for lunch and the manager was upset we did not want to eat. We had made it clear to the staff we wanted a drink only. Only one of the many tables were occupied so I couldnt see the problem. We left quickly and were very disappointed with the attitude. We were maybe unlucky and this one experience shouldn't put you off trying this place. Set menu was €10 and on previous visit worth passing other restaurants.

I would like to make clear to the gentleman, what we probably did already on the premises even he didn't want to have it, that we do not serve drinks only, no matter if it is too early or too late.
I have heared several times but in UK restaurant do serve drinks only...we could just say well we are not in UK but the reason is that we have a bar as our neighbour and we do not want enter a conflict situatio. Actually we have a license also for drinks but we call this corretness towards a neighbour and collegue.
Sorry if he misunderstood but cannot blaim us for this.

“Excellent pizzas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Restaurant open late, inexpensive, has delicious thin crusted pizzas, which are recommended. Good wines and draft beer. The rest of the fare is somewhat variable. Pleasant terrasse on the street, espescially in the evening.

“We liked it! We would return.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Went here for dinner one night and we enjoyed it. My husband enjoyed a really nice steak, cooked perfectly to his liking. I had a mushroom risotto that was very good. Service was nice. We would return.
