You shall need help with the steep slope toward the entrance and the threshold of 8 cm. For the rest the restaurant is easily accessible. The tables are high enough for wheelchair users. Also for the terrace you need to pass a threshold of 8 cm. The adapted toilet has sufficient lining-up space, but the washbasin is a bit more difficult to use.
