Despite the huge sign saying there was a breakfast buffet we turned up at 730 and then walked passed at 1030 to see it was still shut. Don't be fooled by the advertisement. (Photo taken later)

Terrible service, confused and rude staff, waited 40 minutes. Many guest were leaving without placing their order, because of the delayed service

Nice place to sit back and watch the crowd. Nice selection of food. From pizza to pasta with seafood. Easy walk from or to the train station. They have a nice breakfast, incase your hotel does not offer.
