We had lunch around 16:00, the buffet was awesome but the price was a bit too much 38.50€ per person. The sushi was amazing and also the sea food buffet was delicious. The staff were friendly and polite.

Lunch was a buffet lunch. There was a great variety of food in the buffet. The chinese food was OK, but pizza was nothing special. This restaurant is a good choise for lunch with kids. There probably is something kids like.
