Friendly staff, varied menu and very good food. We ate there after a recommendation and came back the next day because it was that good. We got get the recommendation from the tourist office below, which got us a 10% discount

Awesome food, great waitress, I didn't know when I would propose but this place made it happen. Amazing views of the mountains plus a lightning storm rolled in about 20 miles away. I had steak and she had seafood with coconut sauce. Everything was perfect!

Good service, food ok but nothing special though the fries were amazing and so hot!! Expensive for what it was and wine is a ridiculous price as it is so cheap in the shops

Very tasty meal. I went there for dinner upon a recommendation from a local and was not disappointed. Clean, great service and nice view. It is upstairs so don't miss it. Prices were reasonable.

We ran out of time to visit the cheese museum so I was delighted to get to sample the cheese tray. The cheeses were delicious! We also had great steak and a good bottle of wine. They also have a good sampling of expensive alcohol. It wasn't cheap but it was worth it.
