Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We sat on the terrace, quiet, with a nice view. They have a limited menu. We ordered the ceasar salad with chicken and the beefburger with French fries. We did not have to wait long for the food to arrive. Frsh, good portions. For drinks...we had half a litre of local draft beer, very tasty, and a glass of white wine. With a total bill of 25€ a good price. Friendly waitress.More

We had a lovely service, the waiter recommended summer menu - definitely worth to try. We had beautiful dourado fish and very refreshing chicken salad. Lots of space outside with option to have a blanket on a chilly night. Great location with reasonable prices, would...recommend it!More

As starters we tried spicy tomato soup with lamb meat and shrimp pyre soup.Both were quite tasty. Therefore, we waited similar continuation with beef fillet. Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed. The beef was a bit tough. The portion was overdecorated with flowers and berries...(strawberry, blueberry). The service was good. The cafe is located in a theater building and is really peaceful place.More

Foods and beverages are great. Prices are fair and display of the foods is also very great. You can reserve seats infront and you have the oppurtunity to fit 100 people inside and terrace area has about 80 seats. Close to the theatre and has...daily offers on work days.More
