I had the nachos with meat etc. it tasted quiet good, but they could have put more cheece in between as the middle part of the dish was just dry nachos. My wife had the pizza which was pretty good! good service.

I didn't like the Olivenburger. Missed a juicy burger with taste. I asked for pommes frites, instead of sweet potatoe, but got sweet potatoe. But I can recommend the fish soup and mussels. I also wishes that the smokers had their own area outside.

The restaurant is newly renovated and the ambience is very nice! Food was excellent but the wine menu could have more selections. Staff very nice and serviceminded but the level did suffer since it was extremely busy. Highly recommend this restaurant!
