“Fish and potatoes, whichever way you like”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

This fish restaurant is pleasantly situated overlooking a marina, rather grandly titled Varelhaven.
The fish is well cooked, although the varieties are fairly limited (sole, eel, shrimps and smoked salmon), and served with a variety of side orders. For non-fish eaters there are the fairly standard German meat dishes, including pork schnitzel in breadcrumbs, beef steaks etc..,
We missed a trick in not going for the fish buffet which had pretty much everything on the menu available buffet style (and eel done donner kebab style on a spit which looked intriguing) but even so our food was good, and at a little over €70 for four adults and two kids was not badly priced.
There is a kids play area with a pirate ship outside, although the fence does not close it off from either the marina or the road so you have to supervise them closely, but all in all a pretty good spot.
