Came along by coincidence and were attracted by the nice ambience and the menu. Had superb ostrich-filet with teriyaki sauce. One of the best dishes in the last two weeks of travel. Service was perfect.

I'm not sure if they are open on Monday (on the website there is an e-mail address for info), we had lunch inside because we visited the place in winter. But the road outside (like all the district) is quiet and you can have... More
