Nice friendly neighbourhood place, fun to visit as a tourist and get a feel of more local place. Desserts were wonderful, apple pie and a bread pudding. Properly heated up, no microwave. Mains full of fresh salad. Very friendly service.

We had occasion to return after two years. Sad to hear that the ownership has changed however, the food, atmosphere and prices remain great! The service was great and it was as busy as ever! We will return!
