A bit of a modern fit out, probably a bit too modern for me. Great selection of wine. Service was excellent. Was a bit disappointed by the food. While the 'meatloaf' was tasty the accompanying pasta was almost cold and had some hard dried out pieces, not very nice. Also the portion sizes were not uniform, some had big junks... More

We just had a starter in this place as we booked the main meal in another place but this address deserves a stop. Nice room with good ambiance. The wines are definitively their speciallity and we could hardly finish the starter. A place to visit as a bit less central and consequently with more locals and less tourists.

The food, the open wine and the coffee were excellent! Only disappointment was the appetizers were a little on the small side. It should have been three scallops and three gambas, not two. The main course and the desert were appropriate. The pricing was fair. The service was very good, and the staff were all friendly and accommodating and made... More
