We went to this restaurant based on the high ranking and good reviews at trip advisor. The food was o.k but expensive and old fashioned European kitchen and the restaurant was full only with tourists. We ate at better restaurants during our vacationMore

Dear guest from Aberdeen, the starter you refer to is our "Bites platter". A 3-layer stand with a selection of our starters plus some "fingerfood". A real "party" to start your dinner with!! Thank you for your friendly review and best regards, Frans Vlaming

I am coming from Toronto next week. I have been to your restaurant a few times and the experience was always memorable. My son and I had the pleasure of sitting outside and chatting with you one evening a few years ago. It made our whole trip very special. I hope to see you there again.
