What a stunning night! We arrived and, despite it being our first visit, we were greeted as cherished guests. The set menu is fabulous - try the chicken with spinach and blue cheese with apricot sauce. Don't forget to book though. You are highly unlikely to get a table on spec...

From the food to the service to the crazy but wonderful Chef Fredrick it all just worked! For such amazing food I am surprised how little we had to pay. We ate in the top 3 restaurants as per trip advisor and this little gem was number 3 at the time but I can say it will be the first... More

Overall, delicious and not expensive, but such a rating of the restaurant waiting for more. Dishes are mostly cooked from chicken meat and pork, that is used... More

Just book it, you won't regret it. Everything is superb and the owner a delight and welcoming. Add to this the great value set menu or the simple, but delicious a la carte menu and you're set for a fine evening. I would also recommend the house wines, which, as the owner points out, happen to be pretty decent. (If... More
