Four of us found this gem my accident. Food was excellent (lamb chops, pork roast). Good service. Good house wine. Highlight of our visit.

We had an excellent lunch, the restaurant is in a kind of cellar so it was wonderfully fresh. The food looked and tasted very well. A bit fancy, but not so expensive, and good wine by the glass.

Charmingly dated decor, intriguing menu, all 4 dishes outstanding quality and flavour. Prices slightly high, but still fair.

Even though prices are high, the restaurant worths it. You can read high quality of cooking in every bite. The service is above the average.
