During a business trip I enjoyed a dinner at this restaurant. Great smiley service. Had garlic Roquefort escargots and black/White pork. Both dishes were good (8/10). If you are staying in the hotel or nearby this place is worth visiting.

Was there for a business dinner and the meal was ok even if nothing very special.

The problem was that together with the dessert we required a cognac directly to the waitress, she had 2 and advised the better one but didn't mention at all the price of 30euro for shot!!!
In the end we paid for the wine of the whole dinner 55euro and than 60 euro for 2 small glass of cognac!!!!
That was completely unprofessional and really a rip off overpriced!!
We found the same exact cognac the next day in Turku for 18euro in a even more elegant restaurant!!! So why to charge almost double??

The next day I complained also at the hotel and left copy of the receipt and phone number but never received a phone call or explanation.

Really bad service. Don't go at all. For sure you can find better restaurant for better prices.

I went for a late lunch with a colleague to this bistro. The ambiance is nice and the staff is friendly too. I ordered the sea-food stew (Bouillabaisse) for the main course & dessert (chocolate mousse & cookie, ice cream) which I think was the house specialty and it included an espresso too. The stew was good to my taste. Dessert was also nice. There is some room for improvement though w.r.t. the chairs (without any cushion material) which were bit uncomfortable or may be we sat for bit longer :D
