Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After reading many positive reviews, I had high expectations for the restautant's classic dish, liver. I was dissapointed. The meal was too salty, veggies were overcooked, the liver was well-done, potato root purée was avarage and there was a hair in my food.. However, the...service was OK and my complaint was handled well.More

Lovely food and cosy spacious dining area We had dinner indoors and the restaurant has nice large tables, spaced out, the interior is both cozy and elegant. The meat (mainly meat there) is extremely tender

Had a long dinner with friends. I was happy with everything that was served. The starter mushroom soup was excellent. Also the steak and crab caesar salad were a surprising but very well working combo. And last, the creme brulee was just 5/5. Friendly staff...who knows what they're doing.More

Great restaurant with friendly staff and well prepared food. Red wine by glass was very limited which was unfortunate The captains steak was perfectly cooked. Unfortunately it came out on a bed of rice rather than the veggies I requested. Other than that, the meals...were well presented and very well cooked. I would definitely go back.More
