Little gem

Tucked away in a side street - it's worth finding to experience an intimate, friendly atmosphere where the chef/owner not only weaves his magic to create mouth watering fare but also has a chat with you about how it was for you.

1st class dining experience. Excellent food and friendly but professional service. Food was a little slow in arriving but the quality was exemplary, particularly the carpaccio of fish. Good value and we will be delighted to visit again.
