This is one of those places you’ve always been looking for, and utterly happy to find, at last!!! Substantially, it’s a basic and unassuming restaurant specialized in horse meat, beef, all kinds of typically local preparations, all very tasty and attractive, available at reasonable price...More

Hi, I didn't make any reservations there. And I used to eat there every night.. - There's much people in there but they've got enough seats. :) I was there in January.. Food was wonderful and prices were not too high. :)
