Really love this place. The setting is so personal and romantic. Even though the place was packed we felt like the only diners there. We were so looked after and the food was first class. Huge thumbs up from me.

Not having charged the phones, nor having Satnav in the hire car, finding the restaurant was an adventure in itself.

I would advise going by taxi (a) because it will be easier to find and (b)... More
