Had dinner, food was good but overpriced. Some staff were friendly, others not at all. Right wing of the restaurant was cosy, we were given a table on the left side near the toilets - not recommendable. Would not go back.

Location is very nice, yet potentially to big (given size of the kitchen and number of waiters). Service was friendly but not attentive enough.

Most importantly, in line with other reviews, I do agree... the menu lags in structure, is a mix and match of too many different styles and cuisines and unfortunately not to a good standard.

We had the salmon trilogy as starter, and the seafood platter and crayfish special (on risotto, see picture).

The salmon trilogy was okay (three different styles) but missing some bread on the side (can be purchased for 1 dollar extra). Taste was okay not nothing special.

Seafood platter contained squid, some bake, mussels, ceviche and prawns. With exception of the bake, items weren’t well seasoned and the batter for the squid tasteless. Wouldn’t order again.

Now, the special. The crayfish was big and very tasty, worth the money (40 dollars). Unfortunately, the risotto wasn’t... completely overdone, not well seasoned, quite sour from too much lemon and all in all one of the worst risottos I’ve ever had.

I very much enjoyed their whole lamb BBQ meal option. South American Patagonia style cooking made for a delicious serving. $45 incl a house beer.
My wife also very much enjoyed her seafood combination.
Professional and efficient service too.

We ran into a local when we came in. She said the mains were enough without starters, boy was she right! We had the paella and the lamb. The lamb was delicious and there was lots of it. The paella was good, but could use some spice. The coconut cheesecake was also delicious.

We had dinner at the Kepler Restaurant. We both had a seafood chowder plus a bread selection with lovely dips. It was beautiful but expensive. Would recommend.
