With family and friends. Good atmosphere, good food and good service. The staff and management are also very friendly, and try to please the customers. They appreciate it very much if you like their food and tell them about it

This was recommended to us, as somewhere special to take a friend. Our booking was made one day earlier, and our table was the best in the house, just inside, with a view out to the lake.
