“Surprising find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were looking for a place to have lunch and spotted this place by the canal/river. It advertised a set menu for €12.50! We had not expected much but were treated to a free starter, a starter of choice and a gorgeous steak with chips. With drink and a coffee added, it was an extremely reasonable lunch, outside in February next to the river with excellent service. You can't really complain about that!!

One of the best meals I've had in years , unusual mix of foods offered but all excellent . Especially impressed by the Prawn dishes and the near perfect steaks .
Staff polite and efficient . Considering the quality very good value for money .

Good location over looking the canal .

“Nice location, good food (lunch)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

I can only judge about the fixed lunch (since it's all I had here): it is cheap (starter and main dish: 10 - 13 €) and of excellent quality. Service was friendly and the interior nice. This together with the excellent location in the old city centre made this a place i would advice people to eat.
