Enjoyed eating at Woodsman Restaurant every year since our Honeymoon, but had a disappointing experience the last time we visited... dried out Baklava, icy Halva ice cream, extremely small portions... We'll try again March 2018 :-)

Hi sorry to hear. I will take extra care to remedy the baklava. Perhaps a poorly made batch. See you shortly. Regards Christopher
