The iconic blue delft tiles, which cover the story of the brand, have been transformed with seamen tattoos, sails and navigation charts motifs to pay tribute to island life and the restaurants harbour-side location. The open kitchen allows guests to watch their food being freshly prepared right in front of their eyes, while The Butcher’s signature hanging cow can of course not be missing in the front window.
