“Tapas and a View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

My friend and I visited here on two different occasions while in Pletts. The first time we ordered tapas and salads. We both enjoyed our selections very much that we decided to eat here again later in the week. The second time around we each ordered a main dish. Unfortunately both of them fell flat. Both dishes lacked in flavor and the meat was dry.
Both times the service was good. The wait staff was very prompt and friendly. I would recommend going here for a bottle of wine and tapas mid day while sitting on the outdoor patio and taking in the view.

“So good we went twice!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

The fat fish name doesn't do it justice! It's beautiful fish and both meals we ate were superb. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the setting overlooking the bay couldn't be better. Highly recommended.

“Great service and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Our host Lindy made a booking for the 5 of us. We arrived on time and we had a great evening. Service was great, the waitress knew what she was talking about, and that is even in Germany sometimes hard to find. She could explain every dish and was very flexibel with the kids menü. Which is always important for us. The food was very good. The prices are reasonable (80 Euros for 5! - 3- course for the adults including a bottle of wine and tuna as a main course, and 2- course for the kids incl. Sushi - where do you get that in Germany?).
A place to go! Event if it is a bit noisy. But we travel with 3 kids, so we are used to some noise...
