Welcoming atmosphere and great local produce- especially the delicious lamb cutlets. Felt really looked after by a lovely and attentive waitress who gave good recommendations and told me what was safe to eat when travelling pregnant.

Gorgeous little restaurant with great local dishes with the chef's own spin. Portions were large and the waitress recommended we order two starts and a main to share. We started with the mussels in garlic and green beans with jamon (both daily specials) and ended...More
