This place was recommended in our guidebook and we were excited to try it out, but we ended up getting a horrible case of food poisoning. Would not recommend

This is a great lovely restaurant - I particularly like it because it offers some vegan options which are clearly marked on the menu. The waiter who served us was so friendly and we had a great chat with him.
