Stayed with my wife in the adjoining hotel for two nights. We had the option to dine here or in the hotel. We enjoyed our first nights meal so we came back a second time. Really tasty food and very friendly staff. Big thanks to Ronny and his team for two enjoyable nights.

We are here while staying in the adjoining hotel. Food was excellent, well priced and portions good. Staff are attentive without being in your face. The decor is modern and it looks fresh and inviting. Definitely value for money.
