4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

... to an old fave, discovered 4 years ago. The same team of waiters, pretty much the same menu, but still just as good and reliable for quaility and atmosphere. International clientele, locals more noticable than before. Fast, polite service. An hour pleasantly spent. Would come back again and again.... and probably will next year.

They took our food to wrong table and did not even say sorry. Meat was good but salad was a disapointment. Not going back.

We have visited this restaurant numerous times in the last week and will certainly go back. The food is of a high standard and well cooked. We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful and the location is super. I personally do not understand the bad reviews as this is one of the better and good value restaurants... More

My wife and I have been to this restaurant several times for family meals and have always enjoyed them. In the winter months it's not always warm enough to eat sitting outside but the downstairs restaurant is comfy and has a good atmosphere. The food has a wide variety to it - Scandinavian and Spanish influences and there are some... More

Early dinner, warm enough to sit outside. We had chateaubriand with bearnaise. Had to wait too long but when the food arrived it was excellent- and quite expensive. The waitor never asked us how the food experience was, we had to wait ages for the desertlist and he looked almost annoyed when I commented the food. Anyway, I could try... More

Avocado starter was hidden under some sauce which made the whole starter taste the same. The same problem with overuse of sauce followed to the main courses as well. They were special-steak and peppersteak. Special-steak did not have that egg yolk as promised in menu. The side dish vegetables were straight from the freezer, disgusting. The redwine of the house...

I always enjoy going to eat there. The food is always good and the menu is quite comprehensive, enough to keep some satisfied for at least a week. Service is always good and really the only thing that has changed over the year is the price, and by today's standards it is not expensive. The dish I ordered say 10... More
