A broad menu with lots to choose from if you are with friends. The Griffel is an old school house and has a nice relaxed atmosphere for dinner - outside and inside space depending on the weather. Friendly staff and good attention to your requests.

We always have lunch, brunch, dinner and/or drinks at the former school of my father. We are never disappointed about the food and very pleasant atmosphere.
