very nice place to sit. we had eaten hamburger which was also nice. but the cheese plate was the best. There were many different kinds of cheese and the most importantly they put the whole cheese instead of a piece. Very delicious.

We ordered a burger classic well done and entrecôte medium. My burger was medium and oily, and the entrecôte cold, rare and very hard. She couldn't eat half of it cause there were pieces of fat everywhere. The waitress avoided us after serving the food......More
