Not a fashionable restaurant but the food and service were both good. The waiter went out of his way to ensure that we had a nice evening- his wine recommendation was very good.

We had a pleasant dinner seated outside. The food was good, the steak exceptionally good. Considering that they were very busy, service was reasonable. Our bill was 20 euros higher than it should have been.
