This is a lovely fish restaurant with direct views over the water way. You see watching all the boats go along whilst enjoying a herring, or maybe some kibberling! Food is of good quality, nice and hot and well presented. Enjoy a glass of beer...More

Visited this place with family. Serves only seafoods. The fish were fresh and very yummy. Portions were good. We are medium quantity eater and couldn't finish it, even though our 2 kids ate from our plate. This place has more of a fast food ambience...More
