I booked a table in advance (well-recommended as they're always busy), but got stuck in traffic. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating, saving our table even though the place was full. The food was excellent - the vegetarian options are particularly bursting with flavour...More

Friday lunch, 2pm. The lunch menu is apparently different from the dinner one, so we could choose from the great variety of salads and mains. As we were four we ordered everything (the four mains and almost every salad). A triumph of mediterranean vegetables and...More
