Disappointed we could not get the early bird menu even though we asked for it, yet the table next to us asked for it when seated and received it.
I understand social distances but putting everyone in the same area when the rest of the restaurant is empty and you ask can you sit somewhere else does not make sense. These are the only things I could say were wrong on our visit, otherwise a very enjoyable experience.

Had a lovely evening. Everything was excellent, especially liked the Tuna Tartar. The service was impeccable, great advice and excellent attention to detail from Ante which really made the night.

I took 1 star off for value as it is on the pricey side but we did get the lobster and the dover sole, 2 of the more expensive dishes. The bill came out at 200 including tip, thats for 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 dessert and a bottle of wine. 4/5 value is still pretty good, just not the type of place you'd go to if you are looking for really good value.

Our waiter Ante (I hope I spelled that right) was amazing. The food was great and very filling. I had the Norwegian king grab legs and I couldnt even finish it there was so much meat in the class. My husband was happy to help at that point. He had the catch of the day special and loved it. The place was very clean and the staff not only sanitized the tables, but the seats as well, after the guests left. Amazing. Will be going back many more times for sure.
