“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped for late lunch here as it looked nicer than average for the tourist city and it was close to our hotel. Glad we did. Hubby had one of the asparagus specials (whilst in season) and I had a sandwich from the lunch menu. We shared bitteballs as an appetiser. All was very tasty. I'm surprised at the comments re rude staff. Our waitress couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful with my quest for flavoured soda water. Now I know what to ask for everywhere I go.

“Loved it”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Location is great (just next to the Dungeons). Very beautiful interior. Very polite and quick to serve waitresses. Food was great and we didn't have to wait for too long. Cobe beefburger, Croque Monsieur and Chicken Club Sandwich- were well prepared. Much recommended. Fresh orange juice and absolutely delicious deserts!

“Cold, rude, and not worth a return visit.”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

A friend and I stumbled upon this restaraunt on a wet and windy march afternoon. The restaurant was busy but not overcrowded. After a few minutes when we finally got the attention of a server and asked if there were any available tables,we were left chasing our waitress up the stair to a small table at the end of a balcony. We were not giving menus and after ten minutes finally got the attention of a different waitress, when we asked for menus we were told by the very rude girl that the kitchen was no longer serving food. No drink alternatives were offered.

If this was the case we should not have been admitted or at least forewarned about it, and the manner in we were treated was appalling.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
