The place is perfect either for a quick lunch or a lingering stay with a friend. No frills, simply a cosy place with good, healthy, food at a great price. A very good choice indeed.

A very popular self service lunch restaurant among locals. Tidy place offering a lot of choice for affordable prices. Not so many tourists due to its location.
