A typical local dinner with an openung menu consists of smoked Salmon fillet with salad. The main course is roasted chicken thigh. Both taste very good. We do not try wine and other alcoholic beverage for religious reasons.

I had the dinner and breakfast buffet style meals. Both had a lot of choices and regional specialties. The selections were varied to meet any diet requirements, fresh and well prepared.

Both meals that we had in the restaurant were excellent. The waiters were most informative about wines and the menu in general.
