This is not just a restaurant but an institution in the area. The food is always delicious although a bit pricey. The decor is a bit dated and a little too dark for my liking. No complaints on the service which always polite and timely.

Yes, I’m pretty sure it is accessible. I don’t remember any obstacles, but it’s probably best to check with the restaurant itself.
