We booked in advance which was just as well - I hadn't realised how small the restaurant is (we counted 20 covers) with only three staff including the chef on the evening we were there. The menu offered a lot of attractive options so that it was hard to choose. Prices were reasonable for both food and drink. The only drawback was that we had to wait quite a time for our main course, and then dessert, to appear, but this was unavoidable given the nature of the enterprise. It was fascinating to be able to glimpse into the kitchen - clearly the staff were working as hard as they could. I would be happy to return, with time in hand, as the food was beautifully cooked and served.
