My meal consisted of a bowl of soup of the day (carrot and coriander) and pork loin in a black-pepper sauce. The main course came with potato balls and some cauliflower. In total, the cost was about 24€, which was a bit pricey considering that the meal was palatable rather than memorable. The menu is not too varied either - maybe eight choices for your main course, all a bit on the dear side for what you get. The decor was nice enough, the service was friendly but slow, and the draught Heineken was... welcome.
All in all, I could not really recommend the restaurant as an eating place of choice, but for the tired-and-can't-be-bothered, it’s okay.
Breakfast, on the other hand, is better. You get a good choice of breads, pastries, cold meats, cheeses, jams, cold boiled eggs, fruit, hot drinks, and juices. There's also a limited amount of hot choices consisting of toast, scrambled eggs, and bacon. It’s a help-yourself/eat-as-much-as-you-like set-up starting at 7am. Just the thing to start the day, actually.
