We visited this restaurant after reading an excellent review in the Telegraph newspaper. It is a bit tricky to find and you have to run the gauntlet which are your typical tourist, primely located restaurants, who would literally pick you up and drag you in if they could - but persevere, you will not be disappointed.
We had the "cheese parcels" and "spicy cheese bake" to start with. A shrimp dish (recommended by the proprietor Theodore) and the "seared tuna with wasabi sauce, coated in sesame seeds". With fresh bread, a fresh salad and some good quality house wine it was just what we were looking for. It was so nice that we went back a second time and had the same again - with the addition of crab cakes.
The food speaks for itself and in particular the tuna dish wouldn't be out of place on the menu of a Michelin starred restaurant. All of this at a very reasonable price and with attentive, friendly but not overbearing service to boot. It really helped to make our trip a memorable experience.
The owner Theodore, is one half of this family owned gem of a restaurant. He was born, raised and now runs the establishment with his exceptionally talented American wife who cooks with culinary flare and confidence. Their welcome was warm, friendly and sincere - the kind you would receive at a friends home. His complimentary lemoncello is legendary!
