Seafood buffet for less than 30 euros, I would say not bad. The seafood served on buffet is oysters (mid-range quality), shrimps and bulots. There is also baked salmon and few other fish dishes. There is quite a long list of other foods served. Its all about the quantity, but quality seems to be lacking. But I will still say... More

While efficient for a restful lunch, neither the decor, nor the "buffet" set-up is particularly enticing. The staff is eager but with stained and frailed uniforms which does not reflect well on the school principles.

Come hungry - the buffet on offer is large and with such a wide assortment on offer, the plate fills up quickly leaving little room for the main course or even the desert!

The dessert buffet also looked fantastic. The main courses were excellent but I think you'd want to come here if you were hungry enough to tackle all three courses (starve all day!) - alternatively you'd no well to just have starters and dessert!
