Older setting, nothing really special, desserts are good. Location is good as in smack in the middle of downtown, close to bars and tourist shopping

Have eaten here several times. Had the seafood each time. If you are on a diet stay away. Old world charm and attentive wait staff. A little spendy but would return again
