This restaurant was a bit more up market than the others in this area and the food nicely matched it. I had the roasted salmon with mash potato whilst my colleague had the horse special.

We were a group of 22 people who came for dinner (reservation made a long time in advance). The restaurant had some difficulties handling this size of a group - starting from the waiters that asked us to collect the reservations from the group members...More

Klimop used to be in the old town centre and then moved opposite the station. We had not been there in a long time, but the manager recognized us, which was a good surprise. Location is very good, and there is a nice outside terrace...More
