Magically set on the edge of the lake. Went there for lunch, which is a bar menu during the day. Lived up to all expectations. Will be back again

Get a table by the window! We ate early., at 630 and had the benefit of early bird price €30pp, and great views. The food was good as on the a la carte menu the wine was great and not too expensive.
