We tried grilled, fried and skewered lamb, all delicious in their own way. Grilled lakb liver is not gound just anywhere, so we tried that too, very good. Lamb goulash was just excellent with homemade gnocchi. Servings were large and well prepared.
Tomate they used for the salad was stuff dreams are (sometimes) made of. :-) We had good olive oil and some excellent wine vinegar to use on our salads, making them really stand out.
Staff were helpful, polite and busy. Terrace is green and leafy, yet somewhat hot (late August will do that). Place was almost full for lunch. Thrre is plenty of free parking available just outside of the restaurant.
Highly recommended for meat lovers.

Revisiting after one year. Everything as good as expected....but!!!
As a starter we've ordered fried lamb brain. The taste, the frying and the texture were justgreat and fresh and yummy. And that in one of the tree fried pieces, piece of bone. And another one and ththird one. Luckily I'm a slow eater - chewer. I've showed them to the waiter in order to proceed it to the cook. All I've got from him was the explanation that this can happen / is happening when they use an ax. No apology whatsoever. We haven't heard anything from the kitchen at all. It's not for the money but they should at least consider not to charge this dish or gift us with free glass of wine. No, they fully charged as ordered without final bye, bye question how was it for you? Shame.

The restaurant is best know for lamb dishes and rightly so. Locally sourced and always very carefully prepared.

Family owned and managed, the service is most attentive.

Very pleasant environment with outdoor tables.

Easy to access, plenty of parking.
