Delicious food in a rather interesting setting. One has to try it, so as to "feel it". I dare say that whoever attends this place won't be disappointed ...

Great food and drinks. Backpacker style but absolutely delicious. I tried the Hamburger as I was not in the mood of fish and it was fantastic. The pricing for a national beer and other drinks is very fair.
