Traditional place to have vendace. Big portions. I have an impression that the quality varies from day to day. We have had good vendace here before and also now the portions was ok, but not exceptional. Also it took almost one hour to get the portions, so there was most probably some challenge in the kitchen. We also wanted to order desert, but because the restaurant was closing one hour later, we were not allowed to order desert. You can get similar vendace elsewhere, so to keep up to the reputation the restaurant needs to improve.

Wienerschnitzel and pancakes. Especially the pancakes are worth the visit. Portion nr. 5. Salmonoid with pork was also very good.
