This restaurant was a pleasure to visit. It was just up the hill from my hotel and well worth the walk. The pastries are made fresh every day and are fantastic. The breakfast sandwiches are yummy and the chocolate croissant and apple turnovers are amazing.

Couldn't have been better. Escargot was absolutely fabulous and not a drop of sauce was left after dipping your wonderful bread in it. I had flank steak with mushroom sauce. So well prepared, tender and flavored. Fabulous. Seafood pasta had my wife. Speechless and smiling. Gotta give it a try, but get there early because the outside tables filled up... More

Just behind the resort. Small, but cute. Food was very good. Only had dinner there, but I believe they had breakfast, etc. also.

Not too fancy but I was there for coffee in the morning, late breakfast, lunch, dinner and then to watch some soccer in the evenings. Great food and a good price and staffed by some friendly folks.

Went here twice in 3 days. The Eggs Benedict was awesome! Served on a croissant. Hollandaise from scratch. The home fries were delicious. Boiled in salted water, onions and peppers. Then heated before going on the plate. Not the least bit greasy. I could eat them every meal of my life. The Norwegian breakfast is superb. Eggs, a huge portion... More

Outdoor seating is awesome. We ate there once but walked by it a bunch and they seemed to have live music every time we went by. Food was really good. Hard to see your food at night though.
