We love it here. Truly gorgeous location/setting. Excellent and very friendly service and a great breakfast. Always. Excellent value. Good coffee. We´ve been many times before and will no doubt (hopefully!) return many times in the future. Keep it up guys...you´re doing everything right.

Our guesthouse booked us dinner here and what a lovely setting, we had a mix of starters which could have easily passed as the best tapas ever. We shared a gnocchi dish that one of the best that I have had. We will be back
