It took them a while to get us menus and get our orders. I had the reindeer burger which arrived really cold and I didn't enjoy it. The view of the harbor is nice and it was nice to be able to easily run outside...More

We tried the salmon and cod fish and burgers, they were all delicious. The beers are great also. You can enjoy the fantastic view in the outdoor seating.

I just showed up but it was a Sunday evening about 7pm. If you want to go on a Friday/Saturday night probably best to book.
