We choosed G de Rouville to celebrate my birthday. Great choice! Amazing view, kind staff and good food. Pick a table at the balcony and enjoy your meal looking at Handelskade. Perhaps you will be able to see the Queen Emma bridge moving!

Everything we ordered was delicious and we ordered about 7 different dishes! The desserts were also really good. The view and sitting areas are unrivaled and if you are lucky you get to wave to the departing cruise ships!
