The place is very nice - rustic home in a historical site. The service is very good. However, the food is not as excellent as I expected (high expectations are always a problem). An asparagus starter was good but not more than that, and the...More

A small pleasant restaurant worth the short detour. The owners operate the restaurant and are keen on using fresh meat from the area. The menu varies accordingly. Service is very friendly. Prices are moderate to high but are worth it.

Description
We believe in locally grown, seasonal food, and therefore are continuously learning about the region in which we live. In the spirit of our restaurant, the menu features extensive use of local produce and products of the region with fresh and seasonal crops from our own vegetable patches, fruit orchard and herb garden surrounding the restaurant. Therefore the menu shifts and changes according to the season and the crops.
