    Service was very good. We enjoyed our friendly waiter who spoke excellent English. We tried the cod and potatoes in a bread bowl. It was a novelty but too salty for my palate. The restaurant was very busy with locals and I must presume we just ordered the wrong meal.

    Good price. Cod fish is house specialty

    The cutlery was so dirty. The service was also bad when we kindly asked them to exchange for clean ones. The food was okay. Some items were good while others were mediocre. It depends on what you order.

    We had to wait one hour for our main course. When it was finally served the side dish (hot potatoes) was cold. My wife ordered roasted salmon which was burned. The waiter solved the issue by offering a new fish which was much better but by that time my wife had been waiting for more than 1.5 hours! For the rest it was a noisy venue with several groups making a lot of noise. Clearly this restaurant did not have enough staff to serve an almost full house.
