Had dinner here which was fried rabbit - took a chance but it appeared to be more of a rabbit stew which was delicious, staff very friendly and attentive. Will check me here again soon. Thanks

This place offers good food at reasonable prices. It might not be very 'classy' but it is always packed and especially for Sundays or holidays it is best to book. Service is quite good and waiters are ready to comply with ones needs.I would recommend...More

Small unimposing entrance but what a restaurant, the best rib eye steak I have ever had, my wife's chicken was excellent, accompanied by a generous carafe of local wine, and super value, all served by very friendly staff, highly recommended.

We ate here 3 times during our recent 2 week break - we normally would set a a 2 times max rule but so good we had to go again. The garlic butter with fresh rolls delish, and the tuna was absolutely Devine, and big!!...More

We choose this restaurant because we were inspired from outside. (We didn't check the rate). Location is good, staff is friendly, good list of menu. But overall food was ok, acceptable but don't that great. Plus service, even was professional, it was slow.
