    Loved the place! Cosy historic building, packed with people on a Saturday night. Boeuf a la tartar fingerlickingly good, fins&flatbread platter too. But best of all was the service. Will come back.

    Try the oysters, but be careful with onions, they were a bit "raw". I also recommend pasta con vongole - it was autentic and exellent!

    Had three course vegan menu. The amount of garlic was redicilous, both in broccolini starter and seitan coconut nudel curry, but flavours were good. I really enjoyed the chocolate raw cake dessert!

    Try the chicken wings, flatbread and pasta vongole. On the breakfast have some beautiful smoothie bowl also. Dinner-time should go there with bigger group~

    We had steak tartare and pasta for lunch. Both dishes were quite ok, but considering the competition within a 1-block radius, I wouldn't choose the Cock as my first choice. Price/quality ratio is off.

    The nice buffet lunch they were famous for is no more. Instead you get a overpriced a la carte lunch.

    The food is good. Pastas can be done gluten free. Try their non-alcoholic cocktails.

    Order the Steak Bernaise and enjoy the nicely decorated location. Food is great, service very friendly.

    Good food, try catch of the day. And the waiter will recommend the wine. Most enjoyable.

    Tried brunch, had to ask three times and eat the startes before staff asked what we're having for main course. Salmon on a dried bread? No taste.

    Cant recommend. Getting everything was one of the slowest services that I have run into, including drink orders that was never deliverd. The price of food/vs quality was a bit poor. Thumbs down 👎

    Pasta vongole is the only reason I would return to this place. Don't waste your money on expensive wine or bubbly, they'll just pour it in to basic water glasses "to start a new trend".

    You might not have expected it, but these folks stock some fairly decent oysters too.

    Food was good but sadly service was slow. We wanted to have dessert but had to skip it. Ended up waiting for someone to take our money and eventually we paid at the counter after 30 mins of waiting.

    Food was OK. Tomato rigatoni & cock wings. Should have some less expensive wines on the list, too. Hate it when the wine is over 50% of the bill.

    Lunch was "just" ok. Chicken was raw and that's not ok. Still, should give another try.

    Small ridicilous beers, some of them sold out. Pretty slow service. Food average. Don't bother.
