Part of an extra tour with Grand Circle. Delicious food beautifully presented and matched with a lovely wine in the cellar of old building. Enchanting atmosphere.

This is kind of a hidden restaurant which is to bad since both the service and food is excellent. We choosed from the "Early Bird" menu and got a three course dinner where non of us managed to finnish the dessert due to the generously sized portions.

Enjoyed a fabulous meal here while on a weekend away. This basement restaurant has all the olde world charm with intimate surroundings. The food has the WOW factor no matter which dish you decide to order, and the desserts are a real treat. Everything is so fresh and homemade. The portions are very generous, as the saying goes good food... More

As five girls who love our food, we had checked out this restaurant on Trip Advisor before our visit. We absolutely loved the fabulous ambience and the food was to die for! Between the five of us, we had a good range of the menu, starting from the veggie pasta dish, to the seafood linguini (divine!) and everything in between.... More

Needed a pick me up on a very wet and miserable Monday evening, and did we find it! Food, service and atmosphere were top notch. I'd definitely recommend to a friend and cant wait to return for the divine goats cheese salad my partner had to start. Five stars all around!!
