The Tug Restaurant ist ein kulinarisches Erlebnis. Dadurch ist das Restaurant isehr gefragt und die Abstände zwischen den Tischen sind immer kleiner geworden. Corona bedingt sind die Abstände zwischen den Tischen nun wieder größer. Kulinarisches Erlebnis und Atmosphäre im Restaurant passen jetzt wieder viel besser zusammen.

We booked for Xmas lunch. Although no alcohol was allowed to be sold (covid?), the food was superb as always (a bit pricy but worth it) and the service excellent. Thank you very much.

Wir wurden an unseren Tisch gebracht und dann passierte nichts. Nach 15 Minuten bin ich zur Kellnerin gegangen und wir konnten endlich unsere Getränkebestellung aufgeben. Auch danach mussten wir sehr lange warten. Scheinbar gibt es zu wenig Personal.

Die Lage des Restaurants ist phantastisch. Von der Speiseauswahl hatte ich mehr erwartet im Bezug auf Fleischgerichten. Auch am Service lässt sich sicher noch etwas verbessern.

Service und Essen waren sehr gut und das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis (schon allein wegen des Kurses) hervorragend. Einziger Manko war die Platzierung. Wir waren zu Zweit und wurden in einer Ecke direkt neben eine größere Familie (ca. 12-14 Leute) gesetzt. Nur durch eine geänderte Anordnung der Tische wäre mehr Privatsphäre für alle Beteiligten und für uns mehr Ruhe gewesen. Daher der Abzug bei der Atmosphäre. Aufgrund dessen haben wir auch auf den Nachtisch verzichtet.
