“Good food with friendly, unpretentious service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2011

All the food we had in this restaurant was good, both in quality and quantity (but note that a medium steak would have been called rare in most UK restaurants). The house red wine was good value at 12 Euro – indeed this plus a two course meal for two, water and coffee was good value at a total of 56 Euro.

The restaurant is not large but obviously very popular with locals. We had almost the last table at 8.30pm and soon there were quite a few people waiting at the bar. But we were not put under even implicit pressure to vacate the table.
