I was appalled at the behavior of the owners at this restaurant. Sat at the restaurant having to listen to the owner yelling (rudely) at a supplier that had come to ask for payment.

Nice and small restaurant, very cosy and food was good. Great for groups and just to hang out, you could even rent out the place if you have an event. Well kept secret.
