We rode through this area a few times on bikes. The scenery around is stunning. Simply natural rural beauty. If you live in a town it's wonderful to see people at work in the fields, pruning , burning and working hard. We just stopped for...More

mostly visited by older locals who just sit there or locals passing by for a quick & cheap 3 course lunch. It's unbeatable in price and one gets served honest 'mama's kitchen' without any frills. When was the last time you had handmade French fries?...More

The times are usually approximate. Anyway, I will recommend changing the schedules to the real ones. Usually it rests 2 hours and they close at 5 in the afternoon. They will change it in a few days.
