The food was nothing special.. The design and atmosphere of the restaurant were not cozy. The stong smell of beer were everywhere. There are better places in this area.

Nothing fancy here. There is a good selection of beer and plenty of space but the food is basic pub grub.

We visited the restaurant at 6PM on a tuesday evening. It was quite quiet. Has a beef skewer and "pork cheeks". The food was good and greasy. House beer was good.

My visit to this restaurant was a huge dissapointment. The food was really bad and the prices too high. I will never set my foot again in this restaurant.
