This 200sqm bistro has been cruising aboard the Tui Mein Schiff 2 since february 2019.

The choice of the color scheme (cheerful yellows, muted greens) and materials (rattan, oak timber, terracotta floors, glossy tiles) recalls al fresco lunches and garden parties. The space is equipped with a tableware cart that doubles as a hand washing station, while the food is served from a buffet emulating a classic street food truck.



The large dining tables and upholstered benches dominate the space and increase a sense of lighthearted community. A winter garden partition, built out of powdercoated steel profile and patterned glass panes, both frames and separates the bistro from the deck walkway.
