One of the best meals we have had recently. The starters were outstanding accompanied with fresh bread and a devine hummus. Main course of hake tempura was so good, cooked to perfection and the pork schnitzel was of an equally high standard.

Visited early evening with a couple of friends. Relatively small and popular so you need to book. Really tender lamb dish but a lot of meat but of course I managed to eat it all!
