I went to a number of restaurants in the area, but this one charmed me with the fantastic personnel. Young people were so enthusiastic and welcoming! Cannot say which I enjoyed more - the food or the attitude of the waiters.

We had the menus option for Euro 18 each. We enjoyed lots of extras including cheese and wine and an amazing aubergine roll... friendly staff. Great value.
