We HAD to come to this place because nothing else was available,... I have been boycotting this place for years and I won't come here for awhile again. Service is so, so. Wine was good. We ordered fish - where the cream was "creamy like" waterized liquid. On top of the fish there was a lot and I mean A... More

.... downhill from there! Welcoming staff, tried to talk to us in norwegian. Funny, but not very helpfull... Starters were very good! Gambas, onion soup, beef soup, dumplings - all very nice. Main course was a disaster. Wild Boar, prepared with som kind of christmas seasoning? Terrible! None of us finished the main course, but the waiter didn't bother to... More

You could miss this one as most people turn left at the Green gate, but if you turn right, it is just next to the gate. The decor is fantastic if a little quirky, but the food is fantastic as was the pianist behind the bar. Very friendly and efficient staff. The menu has all of the usual things you'd... More

Good food and good atmosphere. Only negative thing was that sometimes we had to wait our waiter a little bit too long to have service allthough there was not so many other customers.

We were looking for a spot where we could sit at the bar, have a beer or two and visit with others at the bar. This place provided all of that plus it is a really beautiful bar. We can't comment on the food because we did not eat there. We enjoyed it and recommend it.

The food was fine in fact good but oh dear the service was shocking. We were seated but very quickly it started to rain when we asked to move inside we were told we couldn't... More

We chose some meals from lunch menu posted by entrance. But we got at the table from the service the regular menu only, the lunch menu only upon request. After a while we got finally the meals: cold soup chlodnik was excellent, bigosz as a main course was good. The surprise at the end - 10% for service charged automatically... More

Went with my partner - we started outside but moved swiftly inwards with the rain. The food was absolutely outstanding - had the salmon dumplings to start, cod and halibut for main. Cooked to perfection. Also lovely live pianist playing behind the bar added to the atmosphere. Service was fine - yes they add 10% to the bill but for... More
