  • On the outside very cool, but inside.. what disappointment! Very small, just a street, so to speak, with literally 4 seats, and one closed by chubby. In the market of my village there is more fish! We thought it would be super big and with a lot of fish... Not really! The restaurant didn't look bad, but we didn't like staying anymore. There was a lot of atmosphere outside, because the universities did something and it was full of students. The building on the outside is very cool.

  • We approached the building to eat fish on the go and were extremely pleased. Inside there is a great variety of fish. In particular I recommend herring and smoked salmon with mustard and black pepper! They weigh everything on you and put them in comfortable transparent tubs, so that you can settle outside where there are tables and benches and enjoy your food. They also sell loathes of bread, make you a disposable knife and fork - wipes and there's also the option to heat your fish in comfortable microwave ovens. We having taken the plastic tubs we avoided heating it but it was still delicious. A must-see: fresh fish at yummy prices.
