Open on a Sunday night. We had a wonderful meal. Pork in honey, entrecote and monkfish. All piping hot and delicious. Service was excellent. Can't believe in all the years we have been coming here we haven't tried it before!

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and lived up to its billing. We had the €20 menu which was excellent value and a wine list with multiple choice around €20. All courses were well presented and the staff very friendly.
