I have to say, this restaurant has seen better days. For years I've come to this restaurant with my family, mostly celebrating birthdays. The first years the food and the service were excellent, but along the years they have started to decrease in quality. It has come to a point where I no longer consider going there, when there are...

We were 4 adults and 2 very young children and we were made to feel very welcome. Most restaurants appear to allow smoking and this one had a good "no-smoking" area, which we wanted! We dined...

By far the worst restaurant experience you could imagine. The staff were slow and had absolutely no control, the maincourses came out randomly within a timespan of 15 minutes. After a 1.5 hour wait, that is. Oh, and I got a spider in my glass. To top it all of, the chicken was raw, salmonella/e-coli? My stomach hurts.. To quote... More
