The restaurant is built partly into a cave, which really adds to the ambience and experience. The menu offered a choice of traditional recipes with a touch of modernity, with a great attention to flavours, presentation, and quality. The service was very efficient.

Absolutelly great relation between the price and the quality of the food/dishes. The restaurant is built inside a cave but it is totally clean and organized on the inside. All dishes were very good!
