This was possibly one of my best lunches ever!

Lovely! Wine was excellent... More

The service was excellent, starting from the waiter, chef and Manager. The place is very original and i would also say romantic.. Was just... More

We were accommodated in this sort of underground cave. Very private, very romantic. A short food menu but very well prepared. Surely a dinner to remember.
