The food here is made with fresh ingredients and great taste! On request you can have your desires taken into account. The chef really makes the difference here! If you are also a whiskey lover then you are at the second best place in town... The restaurant owner also owns a steakhouse with more than 400 single malts in the... More

Last time I went their the four of us and had the house antipasti of mixed cold cut and the house speciality of meat board which is usually 3 different kind of meat.

Nice cosy atmosphere, with delicious fish. However they weren't great at serving a large table (6 of us in total) my friend had to wait 5 mins after our dishes arrived for hers to arrive. Dessert was horrid (the cream had curdled). They did offer us an alternative and an apology, plus a bottle of lemoncello! I would go back,... More
