Always a recommendation of mine when advising guests where to go. The food is a mix of fairly standard European food done to a very high standard and with good service. Recommended!

We didn't book but luckily they could serve us because someone didn't show up on time. Small restaurant ideal for couples and small groups. Amazing food, friendly staff, great atmosphere and reasonable prices. We couldn't ask for more.... More
