Great selection of coffees, tasty burgers and sandwiches, hip young crowd, good service, moderate prices, and a warm atmosphere with a waterfront locale that makes this a must visit.

Visited here in September 2014 for dinner. The Mussels were excellent, and the sirloin steak was one of the best I've ever tasted. Averaged about 55Kr per person for 2 courses and 2 drinks. The service was a little slow, but the general surroundings and the servers are lovely, so I wouldn't complain.

This restaurant turns into a good bar with DJs at 10pm in the weekends. Always great atmosphere, both during the night and day. Okay food, good selection and friendly staff.

Ok standard, but terrible service. I have never in my life experienced a worse staff than in this cafeteria. The waitress was cleaning the window instead of taking our orders, after asking kindly she did not even greet us just said "wait". We ended up waiting for more than 15 minutes to get a coffee. Naturally we went out.

This restaurant has been pretty popular earlier. We were out to celebrate my birthday and what a fiasco. Guess the kitchen was on dont care modus. We got burnt food, i'm shocked that a selv respecting chef could allow such food out of the kitchen in the first place. When we complained we got a new portion which was suddenly... More
