The Poseidon is the place to be for shrimp croquettes. Today I had the chance to check if my fond memories would be confirmed. Spot on! The croquettes were brimming with fresh North Sea shrimps, served with deep fried parsley, a nice salad and delicious (Belgian) French fries. A glass of white house wine made the picture perfect.

I tried a fillet mignon here, and it was perfectly cook and very good, the service is very good, the staff is kind, outdoor seating is available if that is your thing. For dessert, you must try the chocolate mousse, awesome. Avg price should be less than 40€, but of course there are cheaper options on the menu.
