“Very nice restaurant”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Cosy restaurant with great food. Cocktails also looked very nice. Service was good to start with but then had to work to get attention. Central, good value for money and worth a visit!

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

If you forgot to make reservations at a good restaurant in G-burg, and it's 1830 in the evening and you're desperate to find some good food on a Saturday night, consider this place. It looks like the dozens of other generic patio restaurants along the Aveny, but the place had open tables, the service was great and the food was excellent. Creative, well presented, and flavorful. Not sure why it wasn't crowded, but good for us.

“Mixed impression”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

This one is a bit diffecult to review.
I'll start with service that was perfect when we first arrived and through ordering. The personell rally made us feel welcome and explained the meny and made good wine recommondations. But at some point it seemed that they forgot we were there, as service was absent. Eventhough the place nor the waiters were busy.
If they had managed to maintain the level of service they started I would give this place full score.

Food was very good, small portions and therefore a bit overpriced maybe, but quality was excellent.

Location is stright on the Gothenbourg avenue so if you like to just relaxe and watch the busy citylife gi past you, ask for a table at the"window" and you'll be happy.

All in all a nice restaurant, a bit pricy and they nede to work on the service.

“Good food.. but we had to wait...”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

The cooks were probably overwhelmed by the Friday crown, and we stayed over two hours in this restaurant strategically situated on the main street of the city. In the end it was a pleasant stay, and the waiter graciously brought us complimentary starters to help in the wait. I had the Tournedos, which were excellent.
