“A most pleasant dinner”

Our first impressions of the restaurant weren't great. There were no other patrons in the restaurant when we walked in and when we ordered some beer they informed us that their draft beer system was broken and they didn't have any bottled beer!

However, things quickly got much better. Our waitress was a charming woman who spoke English quite well. She took our beverage orders quickly and took time to explain the menu and our choices.

The restaurant does not have a set menu. Rather, a chalkboard is brought to your table outlining the daily specials - approximately five appetizers and ten main course selections. You can either go with an appetizer/main course selection (€26 to €35) or main course/dessert (€18 to £28). If you want a three course dinner then you simply add €3 to the appetizer/main course price.

We found the food to be excellent. The food fresh, well presented and perfectly cooked. Two of my dining companions had the filet of beef and thoroughly enjoyed it. The fish selections were excellent and I quite enjoyed the pollack (lieu).

While we didn't have an appetizer we did go for dessert. The chocolate cake with liquid chocolate centre was over the top in its sweetness (in a good way). The profiteroles New York style was a little odd - essentially a donut cut in half with ice cream in the middle and drizzled with chocolate sauce.

The restaurant is in a decent location across from the train station and near the Mercure and Holiday Inn Express hotels.
