Try the "Suggestion" board. It seems to be a testing out of delightful experiments. We shared an entree of seared scallops that tasted fresh that day. Mains were very generous serves. Well worth it

Had a lovely meal there last night but while we were having our desserts the waiter told us he had a surprise for us which was a glass of Portuguese port however when we paid for our meal he charged us 12 euros for the port I thought it was a bit over the top and put a damper on the evening has this happens to any other customers

I went there in November and it had not been changed. The owner called me a liar but only changed the website after my review.
