As locals we took friends from away here for lunch. Food was lovely but quite expensive. The attitude was dreadful we were made to feel like aliens. We have lived here for 15 years! Never again, can't stand rudeness.

Can't fault the place. The food is great, the atmosphere is very pleasant. Very nice, a bit rustic and traditional. Reasonably priced, too.
