I stumbled onto this restaurant totally by chance and what a lucky chance it was! Although many of the dishes weren't meant for a vegetarian, the waiter was very patient and helpful in finding dishes that would meet my needs. I had only an appetizer...More

We returned, with a friend, after absence of more than a year and realized that we should have come back much sooner. Food was perfect, selection ample, service pleasant. It's far from the madding crowd and looks unassuming while maintaining the highest standard.

We arrived to a warm and relaxed atmosphere with friendly, efficient service and delicious food. The portions are generous and nicely seasoned. The John Dory fish with mushrooms and lemon creme sauce was excellent. I am hoping to return soon.
