The card consists of Menus or formulae according to chosen moment, and of dishes and suggestions which vary according to the day market...

“Beautiful place but terrible service...”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

We went there for breakfast and didn't ordered more than a croissants, orange juice, coffee and 2 small fruit salads (we were 5 people). It was a sunday morning but there was only one (and very unexperienced) person at the place serving food. It took forever (at least 30min - or more?) until we got our stuff we ordered. After 20minutes the waitress told us that she doesn't have any more croissants - why not tell that when we ordered them? We tried to ask the waitress nicely where our breakfast is, because we didn't have unlimited time that morning. She seemed overly stressed and gave us the impression that she would work there for the first time. I felt sorry for her - but what manager would 1. let work ONLY 1 waiter at a sunday morning and 2. such an unexperienced one...?

The place/location is beautiful but the value for money very bad - so better don't go there. You certainly find many other and better places for breakfast.

the food superb, the menu choice very good. good value for money. Service good but not too friendly, maybe just a bad day. we would go back without hesitation.

Bad. Pepperoni everywhere, fish without personality. This is a pity, because the place is nice and this restaurant Babord is near to the beach. I haven't tried Tribord (the pub).

“friendly and varied menu”
Reviewed 4 August 2008

We went to the Tribord two years ago and it became one of our favourite places to eat - went back this year and they had some of the same staff. Food was excellent just how we remembered and the staff were fantastic. Overlooking the harbour, good food, excellent value.
