Shared dining

Cilinder is all about sharing. Cause the more you get to taste the better, right? That’s why our bistro’s menu is made to be shared. Dinner is served from 17:00 - 21:00h. After that we transform from bistro to bar again.

Our menu combines Mediterranean style food with modern flavors and ingredients. All your familiar dishes with a new twist. We like it fresh, flavorful and comfy. And fully plant based.

DJ's every Friday and Saturday

Cilinder loves it pure.

Natural wine, wild craft beer, a cold pint or killer cocktail; the choice is yours. Whatever you order could become your new favorite from the world of beverages. Not sure what to pick? Ask one of our friendly, award winning bartenders. If anyone knows what’s up…
