“Yes, it's catered for tourists, but it's good!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We had a lovely dinner there. We made our own combination starter with Dutch shrimps, cockles, vongoles, and oysters. All very fresh. We also ordered a starter-size mussels and another main course. The portions size were good. Service was good as well. They have menus in multiple languages. And this was one of the few places that we visited where we could use a credit card without a chip in it!

“A nice seafood restaurant”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I went here based on the recommendation of the concierge at the Renaissance. It was very nice and seemed pretty reasonably priced for a good fresh seafood restaurant. The waiter had a bit of a dry sense of humor, but I was OK. The big seafood platter that goes for 99 euros was in full display around the restaurant.

“Good seafood restaurant”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Had the crustacean platter - really nice. The scallops and swordfish were good too and not all that expensive.

“Good old Lucius!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

I use to work in this Restaurant as a trainee chef in 1994, and at my return July 2012 I was stunned to see that they still maintained what they believe in: Fish and flavor, no fuzz! Still full as always, unfortunately I did not see the owners George and Marleen. My Sole was like I cooked it myself, just coming of the bone- the way it should be done! keep it up guys and will come back again!!

“Wonderful seafood restaurant ”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

We were searching for a restraint to relax and enjoy a glass of wine after a long walk and finally ran into this restaurant. We did not have any expectations from this place and read no reviews about it before. There were few guests in the restaurant but almost all the tables were reserved. (It was around 6 p.m. When we came and in an hour the restaurant was full). We were invited to seat near a beautiful aquarium. We ordered king prawns with rib-eye, mix of grilled fish, two glasses of white wine, two glasses of fresh orange juice, and finally two cappuccino (total €70). In addition to the meals we ordered, the waiter served us a gracious plate of potato free and a plate with green salads. The portions were big and everything was delicious! So we rate this place excellent for its food, waiters and relaxing atmosphere:)
