The view from this place simply makes food even better. You can come eat in there or just drink coffe and enjoy. Absolutely amazing place, very calm with view for ages. You mustn't miss it.

We came here two years after our last visit. The owner is still as lovely as we remember, probably the most charming person serving food I know. The food is still great, the location as breathtaking as ever.
