  • It's worth visiting this in any case. One feels transported back very vividly in the history of the city and its inhabitants. The exhibits are also very nicely arranged and very well preserved. None of the rooms is overloaded.

  • Excellent food at a good price. We ate lunchtime from the daily menu, the home made fish soup was excellent, as was the rest of the meal. Great location, lovely old building.
  • Excellent food (fish & seafood) and service with a nice view on the harbour!
  • The snails and shrimps as a starter weren't fresh, and the snails were still slimy and lacked seasoning. The mussels were overcooked and a lot of them were bad, they were still closed.. The creme brulee was fine. The service was nice, but that's about it.
  • Great food. Very helpful and friendly service. Nice view.
  • Nice with a good selection of bars and restaurants
