Romantic restaurant for couples or friends. Live music and frensh style food with local wines. Maybe a bit high priced, but worth it.

This is a gem of a restaurant, we visited as a group of four and we each enjoyed every single one of our dishes. Service was friendly and attentive, and the prices were extremely reasonable for such high-quality dishes. Lovely ambience too. Would definitely recommend.

We have just had the most amazing dinner experience at this restaurant. We had not booked but had been recommended by our hotel, Brody House. A warm greeting, fantastic service with a great choice of specials. Our food was amazing and beautifully presented with superb accompanying wines. Would definitely recommend.
