Located by the river, the restaurant has a nice setting. We had breakfast there, and found the foods very good and inexpensive. They even provided a pot of tea free of charge. Recommended.

The restaurant looks goods and is nicely located at the water side next to the evening market. Our food tasted good and the drinks were ok. It was a pitty that they didn't have enough strawberry milkshakes. The only thing to report negatively is that...More

Dear Yoho Thank you for taking the time to write. Sorry for your misadventure. Typically, digestive problems come more from drinks or fresh vegetables rather than cooked food. We portion and prepare with a proper cold store 100m off site and only cook on site...More
