We paid 29€ for one dish of salmon tartar. The fries were great but the salmon was really bad. If they were using good salmon, which I suppose they have since the dish was 29€, why would they mix it with thick cheese and make...More

We spent an pleasant evening here. Staff were very helpful. Food was good quality and good portion sizes, but wine is expensive!

The restorant is quite cosy, just the way I like it. We were closed inside, with the rain outside, eating and drinking. The food is great, but my favourite part was the dessert. The staff was professional and kind. I would recommend this place to...More
