Such a brilliant dining experience, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was both lively and intimate all at once. Bit out of the way, but well worth it. Lovely traditional cuisine.

Great food and great hospitality. The cosy restaurant is located just out of the tourist type restaurants area, but sufficient to make the difference. Would we return ? For sure.
