This is a place we want to return to! A friendly reception. We wanted to sit on the first floor terrace - no problem. We were led past the kitchen where the wooden logs were burning in the oven. A sure sign of great cooking....More

We came back for the grilled tuna steak and it was divine again. Portions are enormous, we asked only for half the side dishes and still took home half of the dood served. Other dishes also look great and they seem also very sumptuous. Highly...More
