All meals were correct but without a well done touch. We can do better home. Quality of product is average. Settings are cosy. glass of wine was very good.

Nice and tender duck breast. Friendly staff and cozzy setting. The house specialty steak might taste better if go for rare medium. Few wine selection only but good quality.

This is near the famous Hotel Widder. Very central. Has a lovely terrace with plenty of tables. But, it is busy and popular, book ahead. Or rock up at 6pm and you should get lucky. So, so service. Clueless waitress greeted us when we arrived....More
