Description: Would you like a classic French dish or are you up for something more exotic? It Rains Fishes has a French oriented menu with an exotic accent. Our kitchen has the best ingedients like fresh fish, lobster,oysters but also the nicest meat. The result is a light menu with its own identity. We welcome you in a nice atmosphere and unique environment, in the 'Royal' street of the city centre. In the summer you can dine on our garden terrace at the back of the restaurant.

“Friendly atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Back since more than 12 years and found the food really nice and the staff very welcoming, friendly and informal but not too informal.

Small mistake with the saltcrusted seabass where the salty taste penetrated the outside of the fish a bit to much, the rest of the fish was very tasty. When we made a remark about this the waiter came back after discussing this in the kitchen, explained what happened, we got an apology and free coffees for the whole table. Service is maybe a bit slow but when you are out with a family this is not a problem. The other dishes were cooked to perfection and the wine tasted very good.
I found the food price in line with the quality and presentation, the wines however are somewhat overpriced.

An enjoyable evening and we definetely don't want to wait another 12 years to come back.

We ate there on the hotel's (Hilton) recommendation, and weren't disappointed. The seafood was excellent, the prices reasonable and the service was friendly and attentive. Well worth a trip.

“Wonderful food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We had a lovely dinner. I took the menu for 35 euros which was excellent value for money.
Service very friendly but we had to wIt a bit long.
The restaurant was not full so that is why I mention it. Inside is very nice but we didn't like the terrace.
