The food and location is really good. We had fresh fish, and it was the best ever. Service is just very effecient, nothing more. The street is really nice.

We really loved the atmosphere here, it's like a socialist, hippie kind of place. The food is cheap and pretty good. There's also a smoking area where you can drink, eat and hangout.

I loved the place and especially the food. I ordered steak and it was cooked perfect. The wine was great as well. Only bad thing is you can smoke inside. I was never told about a non-smoking area. Still, I would gonback

But average food, we were quite disappointed. But prices are very good. So it is an ok place to spend a few nice moments, eat sth fresh and decent.
