Quintessence:Everything that my friends and I ordered was a bit stale (drinks, entree, main course). Everything lacked flavour in the form or spices, sugar, or salt. The ingredients of all of our dishes on the other hand were of great quality and the fish was cooked on point and very juicy. The service was kind of semi professional - partly polite, partly rude.In detail:My friends and I went to this restaurant on a Sunday. We arrived approximately 4:30 pm. We had to wait in line before we could enter the restaurant. At the reception we were checked according to 2G-Plus rules and we were asked if we had a reservation. Since we had no reservation we were told that we could stay until about 6:00 pm only. We were led into the second room at the back of the restaurant. That time we were the only guests back there, but soon after like 5-10 minutes later another two tables were occupied by other guests.We placed our order within 5-10 minutes or so and got our drinks pretty fast. We all decided for "Hausgemachte Limo Durstlöscher" which tasted like plain sparkling water with just a pinch of flavour. It definitely lacked ingredients like syrup or anything to make it taste like something else than plain water.In addition I ordered the "Schilkseer Fischsuppe (klein)" as an entree and the "Seelachsfilet" as main course. The ingredients were of really good quality and the fish was cooked on point. It was still very juicy. The fishsoup, the fish, the mashed potatoes lacked spices or salt. It all tasted a bit stale. I am not quite sure, but I guess the beetroot side dish was flavoured with truffle oil, which I did not enjoy at all. The portion of my main dish was very sufficient.While we were still waiting for our food the other guests in the room all received a bamboo steamer filled with bread and a portion of lard. The only guests who did not get a bamboo steamer were my friends and I. So when we got our main dishes I asked the service if that bread was a special dish on the menu or if one had to order a special dish to get bread beforehand. The service denied and told us that it was the kitchen's decision to give out steamers filled with bread. They wouldn't know what time the kitchen starts giving out bread. I found that circumstance pretty odd and the service's reaction a bit rude, because we arrived only 5-10 minutes earlier than the other guests in the room and the service could have asked the kitchen for another steamer, but they didn't. And when I addressed the service about us being the only table without bread, they would start to argue instead of apologising and bringing us a steamer. In the end I had to specifically ask if we could also get bread.The restaurant's interior resembles a canteen, but everything including the male's bathroom was clean and tidy. The service was mediocre.I gave this restaurant 4 stars, because I cannot give half stars, otherwise I would have given this restaurant 3,5 stars. But because of the great quality of the ingredients and because the entree, main dishes, and side dishes were cooked so much on point I'd rather give 4 stars than 3.

We visited this restaurant in August 2019 and we were not disappointed. The food and service were absolutely great and the prices are reasonable. If we're in the far north again, we'll be happy to come back. Everything that is available there is to be recommended. Keep it up. Highly recommend.

Do not be put off by the name of the restaurant. The last word does definitely not define any aspect of the quality of the food nor the service. We had three fantastic meals in a welcoming restaurant. Despite being a very busy Monday lunchtime, the waitress was friendly, polite and professional.
