I've had the pleasure of dining at the lakes a handful of times. It's both possible to dine inside and at the outside terrace. Food is good, drinks a great but the wine card is amazing at affordable prices. I can fully recommend it.

Fantastic located near the water, Lakes Bar & Kitchen is a great location for a wonderful lunch, dinner or drink with friends and family or your business relations. Delicious food and fine wines in our pleasant restaurant, or on our renewed terrace. Also for private dining and private meetings (up to 12 people).
