Best meal by far in this restaurant. All freshly prepared food very tasty, great experience & atmosphere. Little more expensive but you get what you pay for. Just off the main road which was nice & quiet.

Loved it here,young waiter kind,patient and hard working.owner chef cooked lovely food,wine exceptionally good quality. Only thing I did not like was the pudding apple spice sort of thing.at least it was home made ,think we are spoilt in uk as steam puds and tray bakes are hard to match abroad. Overall we loved it,,,well recommended .
