We are vegetarians and there was only the veggie burger. We also ordered starters because there were no others vegetarian options. The starters all turned out to be fried. Not bad but nothing special.

We had Fish & Chips and the fish soup. The fish soup was loaded with fish and shrimp. The Fish & Chips breading wasn’t too heavy and not greasy at all. All very very good and service was very friendly and fast

Norwegian salmon 30 € and large main course salad about 20€. Both absolutely worth of every penny. Glas of wine 10 €.
