I have for 20 years eaten at the restaurant regularly due to its location. I have consistently found the lack of interest by the management in their clients unacceptable. The waiters - too few - are generally fine if indifferent. I have been coming here...More

On a sunny day what more can you ask than to have a table on the terrace and enjoy the view of the lake. The food was fine, the service friendly and professional, and we'd be happy to come back again anytime.

Excellent service, flexibility from the staff when numbers fluctuated and timings altered. Terrific spot and a very pleasant place for drinks followed by dinner. I was glad not to be paying the bill but this was a good experience

It was a group dinner, with a very pleasant environment. High level service. Excellent salmon. To make a long story, short, it is really worth to visit the restaurant (al least for dinner). A must.
