Recommended by our B&B and did not disappoint. A little off the beaten track but worth the effort of looking for it. Food was delicious and the service was quick, friendly and discrete.

Great food, very friendly service, nice atmosphere. Bit difficult to find (on Dresden Row but hidden in a small shopping centre).
