You'd think the name might refer to a large bird and babies, but no! The restaurant got it's name from the company which owned the huge factory building in which the rest. is now situated. They used to manufacture large machinery there and the designers of the restaurant decided to leave many parts of the old factory intact. This has made for an interesting and quite exciting interior.
It is located right on the river bank and one can watch boats of all sizes sail by, up close, while enjoying a good meal. A large terrace should make it a fantastic place to visit in the summer.
It is supposed to be the largest Fish restaurant in Europe and so we took the opportunity to dress for the occasion and sample their food, which both of us thought was very good. The service was still slightly disorganised but very friendly. Personally I wouldn't mind if they replaced the plastic chairs with something more comfortable and chique.

We had to wait a while before we could toast to Eric's birthday but it was worth the wait.
