This restaurant was lovely. They have indoor tables and outdoor tables. It is the kind of place where you order at the counter and they bring it to your table, such as is also found in London pubs. We had omelets and tea and coffee....More

Dropped by for a quick lunch. They got some tasteful dishes to choose from, and I picked a delightful flounder on bread with fried potatoes. Highly recomended.

Very good restaurant located very close to the Opera House. Very good menu selection. Not very busy, probably because no show at the Opera! Café-type furniture, which seems to be the norm in many restaurants/cafes. Excellent food, average selection of beers. About average prices, but...More
