Not bad a place for dinner and drinks

Had dinner there a few times. Can't remember the boss' name but he was quite attentive on those times when he wasn't busy in the kitchen.

This evening, I booked a table only ten, or even five minutes before arriving the restaurant. And forgot to mention the waitress lady's name when called.

We came here due to its popularity in Tripadvisor. The food was amazing, the staff quick and efficient without being over the top. Loved the ambiance and the little details of the deco.
