They serve 69 recipes of mussles, the portion is 1.1 kg, I tried one with garlic, it is fresh and tasty and served with fries, don't miss the soup after you finish all mussles, it is a must try.

Was told this is the place for mussels, but couldn't resist stepping out of my comfort zone and getting the ground raw beef dish (can't remember the name). Didn't know what to expect but it was delicious. Mixed with capers, onion, spices and vinegar, the...More
