Fantastic meal and service. Restaurant was very cozy. Everything we ate was delicious but in particular the steak was one of the best I've eaten in a very long time. Look forward to dinning with you again next year

This place was recommended from our hotel. It was packed with the locals on Saturday night. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco on the house. The menu was varied with local dishes as well as different specialities. My starter dish was spectacular to...More
