Fantastic

Excellent food, great atmosphere and welcoming hosts at this family run restaurant, it's a must. This wasn't our first visit to this great restaurant and it won't be our last.

Ate here twice in one week, and given the generally high standards of food in this area that is quite an achievement. Service is very pleasant, and the owner seems to take a great deal of pride in look after his guests. The bread starter with assorted accompaniments is the nicest I've had.

I can recommend the liver speciality which was very good and the range of dishes should satisfy all tastes. The setting on the square in front of the church is very... More
