I advise not to visit this restaurant if you can help it. Dinner: We had the seafood platter. Was ment to have salmon gravalax. This was store brought smoked salmon. Garlic mussels was 3 real garlic mussels still in their shells plus 6 store brought completly different mussels without their shells. This was ment to be a platter to share and the waitress advised us it was very large. There was only 1 fish cake. 1 oyster and was not enough. We were still hungey later. On top of that we had to wait 30 mins for our drinks. No one asked us for drinks and we had to get up and get the first ones ourselves. We saw our drinks ready on the counter for about 10 mins while the staff served other customers . We were going to have dinner and dessert but decided to go else where due to the disgusting service and food.

Had a good meal at the restaurant. Like many other places, it is not cheap, but the meals are of reasonable size. Wifi available free which is also a bonus.

Were bombarded by poor sparrows stuck in the restaurant at lunchtime. Not a good look with birds leaving behind a mess on tables!
Food was good but service slow for a lunch time
