Burgers were fantastic. Owners are lovely. Prices for full meals are mostly under 10 euro, great quality. Out of our four choices all were lovely! Lava cake was to die for!

Wasn't sure what to expect as eating fish out of a can is not normal. The service was excellent as she recommended to first time diners to have a tasting plate of mackerel, sardines and tuna. As well, got a salad which included fruit, lettuce...More
