Love the buffet, hot and delicious items. Good amount of choices. The presentation was surprising, the staff helpful and the aromas enticing. Looks from the outside are deceiving, a must stop.

Lots of variety, especially seafood if you like it. The cooks keep replenishing the warmers and food is fresh, hot and they don't use MSG.

This used to be a great restaurant but their prices keep going up while the food quality and service is going down. Even with a reservation it can be a long wait to get in. Instead of the smorg we ordered individual items as it's a much better deal ($18 bucks for a buffet?!?). When we had had our fill we wanted to take the leftovers with us and so we counted the prawns and chicken balls - we had already been ripped off once previously - and sure enough we only received about 2/3 of what we had asked to be packaged up. When we confronted the waitress she said that she had dropped some of it. Funny how that seems to happen so often...odds are it went back into the smorg (gross). So we won't be going back, there's other places in town that are just as good, cheaper, and closer (and honest).

The food was delicious, good selection and reasonably priced. The service as usual was good and we were made to feel welcome. The location of the restaurant is also great with a view of the sea..

The fu part about this restaurant is that it seems to be a hangout for locals as well as tourists. We were hungry, it was open the food was just fine and the people watching and eavesdropping was great .
