Meal was good and reasonably priced. Salmon Tartar and salmon carpaccio was very tasty. Pasta dishes were good too. Service was attentive and friendly. House white wine was bad but waiter took it back and gave us new wine with no problem. Nice outdoor seating. Recommended by locals.

The food was excellent and also the wine. The waiter was very polite and friendly. The dishes were very big (more then needed for one person - you can order one dish for couple). The only thing is that was a little expensive for pizza and pasta ( but if you only order one pizza for two the price is... More

Visited this restaurant twice during my stay at PDC and was really amazed of their delicious food, especially the pizza. Good prices and very good service. Will definitely come again next time.

The food was decent and reasonably priced, but our beer mug were dirty, and the kind of dirty that happens overnight, they had black filth in them. When I showed the waiter he shrugged and charged me for them . No tip, bad review.
