This is a very quaint, almost out-of-the-way, little non-descript restaurant from the outside, that serves the most delicious mussels I’ve ever had. Once inside, there are only a few tables (it’s small and intimate), that are simply laid with paper cloths. All they serve is...More

Very nice typical North See kitchen. Nice selection of local beers, worth the visit for original and good food from the region. I had the Chef's recipe for mussels: gorgeous. Simple kitchen and you sit in the room in direct connection with it.

We came here as part of an armed forces exercise and wasn't expecting a huge amount food wise but was recommended this place by previous visitors. We were not disappointed in both quality of food and service. The resturant is small and looks very much...More
