Good atomsphere, average food

We ate here on a Saturday night in mid-February. The restaurant filled up quickly (seemingly mainly with locals), covering a few tables twice, and it felt buzzy and busy. The food however was marginally disappointing - maybe we chose badly. The suggestion blackboard was long, as was the menu and... read more

At the citadel end of town, but before the climb, this restaurant made our day. An interesting menu, with additions on a chalkboard, and friendly staff was a good start, but the food was something else. The starter of garlic mushrooms (pleurotes - I believe oyster mushrooms) was the best of it's kind that ihave ever had. The main of... More
