A cosy place and interioir. The Service was mediocre level. The staff was friendly and all but we would have enjoyed a bit more explaining or info about the meny! The seating beside the bar/big tabel was´nt that cozy or private since the staff was...talking and pausing there, one could hear their conversaitons. The meny wasn`t explained for us any further. We ordered the hamburgerplate, the beef was medium, a bit too salty and dry. The wine and beer was good. Overall not a too good of a experience. The place is cozy in it selfes so.More

Ordered sirloin steak and octopus. The octopus was drowned in too much barbecue sauce and the steak was average with little imagination, eg. sauce was plain.. when giving feedback, got no response. Otherwise nice service and drinks saved a lot.

We went there to celebrate my friend’s birthday,so we booked table beforhand. Service was fast,we got our table within a few minutes. We had some misunderstandings with the guy who served us,but then the owner came and saved the situation. We got the best service...and heard nice stories about wines and tasted some. First dissapountnent turned to a very very nice evening. Place is very special,very cozy and warm. Food was tasty and desert was just perfect. You should be careful with startes,portions are small,and for me their prices are a little bit too high,but the taste is very good.More

We waited some time before getting a place despite lots of free table and lots of waiters ignoring us. We got the drink pretty quickly but we had to wait a very long time for our food. We were not the only one and some...customers even started to complain. Service seemed disorganized as some people got their food before us even though we arrived before them (we were only 4 people and only 4 dishes). Portions were extremely small. We paid 30€ for a starter size risotto (it was good but not worth it and I was still very hungry afterwards). Do not waste your time going there. It’s not worth it.More

Waited 15min although we had table reservation, had menu - food wasn't that tasty and restaurant's name is Meat discrict so you expect to get meat. Lots of it. No, had only little but it was great. Dessert was... Well not that awesome either. Pure...2/5. And the price was higher than normal.More

I love this place but during summer time, I guess they employ high schoolers as waiters, and the whole restaurant is a HOT MESS. Food is good, a bit on more expensive side, but the service is a total madness! We had booked a table...but still had to wait by the entrance for a long time. At the table we got our drinks pretty quickly, but waited 45mins for someone to show us the menu. And that only happened after we has asked one of the waiters for some food (we were hungry)! Food was good, drinks are excellent, but the service could be compared to a headless chicken. 5 waiters, only about 10 tables and it’s still a disasters. Same thing last year and year before that! Avoid this place during summer time! During other seasons it’s fine and has no problems (owner is around..?).More
