Tries hard to be gourmet, but the quality disappoints... Service is good though. Ah, and I should not forget to point out that 9.5€ for a glass of wine is a rip-off...

One of my favorite restaurants to go for lunch. Quick service and great menu. Hard time every time to decide between the lamb or beef. Could do a bit more effort with the accomplishment, sometimes its pasta or mash, for such quality food you should...More
