“great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

The restaurant is not so easy to find, but is located in an old part of town with a lot new buildings. It is next to a harbour for private boats, in summer probably a great spot. Service is great: friendly and attentive. We had the surprise menu of 3 courses, without a dessert but with a in-between course (although not part of the regular menu, it was no problem for the chef). Food has great flavour and comes with interesting combinations: salmon with kerry icecream...it tasted very good! Main course was duck and sometimes a bit to rare, now perfectly cooked and spiced. Together with the coffee we got a lovely tray with homemade cookies, great again. So in short: great food with friendly and good service!

“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We wanted a meal to remember, something different..and we weren't disappointed. The service was excellent from the start. We had the four course surprise menu. What a treat.. All courses were excellent, but the salmon with curry ice cream was amazing with wonderful combinations of flavours I had never tasted before. We had a half glass of recommended wine with each course. The wines were perfectly chosen to go with each course. Can't recommend it highly enough.

“Good food.... sloooooowww service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I went to dinner here on 18/6. We sat outside, but since it is in a small harbor with parking nearby, there was constant noise and distraction from guys playing music in their cars in the parking lot and drinking/relieving themselves into the harbor. We arrived a little before 7 and were there for several hours. The food was nice and they had menus in english but it was extremely slow, taking more than 2 hours for a starter/main/dessert. The cost was fairly high and while the quality was good, the portions were small and I wont go back.

“Surprise menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The 4 course surprise menu for €39 was great value... impeccable service, innovative food combinations using fresh ingredients, and they even accommodated our request to package up the desert course as we were both full from the other three courses. Highly recommended.

“A complete dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Last Friday on April 5th, 2013 I had dinner with my wife and several friends. Well all chose the four course choice. No fuss with menu cards but just a surprise. We were asked what we liked, disliked and could not eat. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and explained a lot about ingredients, the dishes, the wines and other products. The dishes were also presented instead of served and the wines were perfect. A tip from me if you are a cheese lover, skip the desert and take the assortment of cheeses. Magnificent. All in all an evening well spent which was quite affordable too. They will certainly see me again. Guys and girls thanks for a lovely dining experience.
