The food was great presented well, fresh, and creative. The portions were generous. The service was excellent - they were so friendly. We returned many times during our time in Nuuk because it was the best food we found for the money. We recommend anything with the pesto. And the smoothies.

We didn't experience an overly noisy atmosphere any of the times we were there. Just happy customers having conversations.

The restaurant suffers a great deal when it's crowded, the ambiance is very poor, and the room is quite small, so when many people are gathered - typically Sundays at brunchtime and Saturdays at lunchtime - it's very, very noisy.
It's a local hangout for people around 23-40 yrs of age, and they offer freshly squeezed juices and smoothies as well as a range of sandwiches, salads and some grilled options.
They also serve drinks, gingershots (non-alcoholic), organic juices and coffee within a european concept - latte, americano etc.
All in all a healthy menu they have, and with a twist of seafood and local ingredients.
It's a café-menu with a little extra greens in there.

Prepare for a long wait, everything's made on the spot, and you'll typically wait around 15-30 mins for your food.

The menu's nothing fancy, but it's a good, clean meal that's an healthy option, and you can order take-away as well.

This place is almost run by asian only and they are doing everything they can to make a good basic meal for little money.
Their goat cheese salad is excellent.
