A memorable evening

We happened on this gem by accident and are happy we did. Without any sense of rush, we sat outside as our wonderful meal progressed and enjoyed the sun setting over the enchanting cathedral and old houses. We sipped our drinks and watched the swallows sweeping through the sky as shadows lengthen... read more

We were made most welcome - the waiter spoke fluent English (we even discussed the chances of England and France in the Rugby World Cup) and gave good advice on the menu and wine list. We had some local specialities and thought the... More
