Definitely try the 5 course tasting menu- very affordable at only €50 for two people, my only suggestion would be to add a dessert course but we just ordered these off... More

(No need to take pictures - better ones available on restaurant's website.) It was the TripAdvisor ratings and review that made me book a table well in advance - not... More
