First of all it's a really nice atmosphere. The food is really good and worth the price. The service is really good, food took kinda long but it was worth waiting for. They offer a lot of different beers! Always worth a visit

Our best meal in a 2 week Northern Europe vacation. Excellent herring and shrimp scampi appetizers, followed by excellent seafood salad. Fresh bread and beer. Wait staff spoke English.

Average quality. Asparagus were slightly overdone. The "ham" was of mediocre quality. The outdoor terras added to a good atmosphere. Good for a quick lunch on the go but there are certainly better places at similar prices in the vicinity.
