We went to the restaurant due to the good recommendations here and we're fully satisfied. Location is on a small street, but you sit inside a nice garden. Service was good and quick. Food was delicious and prices reasonable. Can definitely recommend it.

Charming venue, good food, liked the music but definitely a tourist experience, rather than authentic local restaurant. Excellent staff.

Located a little bit away from the main city streets, walk through this restaurant to enjoy its peaceful garden setting/ Great food, friendly service and moderately priced. Definitely great value; I highly recommend it and am reminded that I should go again soon!
