“Stay away from this trap!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Arrived with my wife and 4 1/2 y/o on a rainy July evening to a semi busy place. After waiting 10 mins for the menu, we picked it up ourselves from the bar and waited for someone to take our order. Not until the owner/senior guy asked if we were ok were we allowed to place our order.

Waiting for the food to arrive was fun while we tried to understand how the table could get SO sticky that wiping a paper towel would cause the paper to disintegrate. Also listening to the teenage waiters telling people off for choosing a wrong table: "NO - if you're 3 people you're not allowed to sit there, that table's for 4 - our boss tells us so" was one of the most hilarious ways to turn away hungry customers I've ever heard!

Food arrived: Soggy French fries, frozen "fiskefillet", industrial "remoulade".

The "Stegt flæsk & persillesovs" was amazingly poor: Pre-peeled potatoes and a persillesovs with no trace of parsley apart from the dry sprinkles on top of the yellow jelly like substance they claimed was persillesovs. Even the "stegt flæsk" was ruined beyond recognition: Super-dry meat and soggy/soft crackling.

A truly horrible food experience which I will remember for many months to come. Stay away from this place unless you don't care about what you put in your mouth!

Til den utilfredse kunde...
Det undrer mig at du udelader det vigtigste, nemlig at du ikke brokkede dig til mig
da jeg spurgte om alt var ok..
Ironisk oplyste du mig at det var et spændende sted..
Bordet du taler om, ville jeg da bede en tjener om at rengøre inden jeg ville sætte mig ned, og måske derfor fik du af vide at 3 personer ikke kunne sidde ved et 6 personers bord.., da netop dette bord ikke var klargjort.
Du taler om vores mad at det er industrielt lavet, jamen er det ikke normalt.. Der er nok ingen der står og laver hjemmelavet remolade, og kartoflerne finder du nok heller ikke håndskrællet længere. Men vores mad er lavet fra bunden af, men sjovt nok har du ikke haft lyst til at
oplyse mig om dette da jeg rettede henvendelse til dig om spurgte om alt var ok.
Se vi vil gerne gøre alle glade, men der er desværre nogle der ikke altid syntes om
vores koncept men du og din familie er heldigvis kun nr 2 i år, så det syntes jeg er flot klaret..
At personalet har oplyst dig om at man ikke kan sidde 2 eller 3 personer på et 6 mandsbord, er måske nok lidt overdrevet....
Men håber at du har haft en god ferie.

Ejeren

“Good Steak served U.S.style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We were in the mood for a U.S, style steak or fish after eating many wonderful European style meals. We found this casual restaurant and enjoyed a nice grilled thick steak and salmon served on a plank. A change is always wonderful surprise.

“BAD!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

We ordered drinks and food! The glasses was very dirty, outside and inside! We wanted new glasses, who we get, but the service was very bad! the man who served us didn't sorry about the dirty glasses. And he stood talking with some other guests with his smoke hidden behind him.
We got the smoke right to our place! Nobody checked about we felt good about the service and the food. The toalets was very dirty!!! When we want to pay we didn't find any person to call. All the persons who worked there stay inside talking to eachother!
Never this place again! Luckely we didn't going sick! And don't like to think about the food and all the bacteries....

“Go somewhere else”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

My wife ordered their steakhouse burger. The meat what bad. Not only was it very poor quality and extremely hard, but something was clearly wrong with it. When my wife complained the waitress was offended but took the plate back. A new burger arrived and it was exactly the same experiende. Besides the bad meat, the bun was factory made, to potatoes was the kind you buy frozen in the supermarket, the salad wasn't fresh etc. The rest of the part ordered other dishes and the quality here was so so. I suggest you try another place in town, maybe closer to the habour.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

We had the pork and parsley sauce special. A rather bland experience. The waitress was nice, but the evening as a whole was disappointing.
