After passing loads of restaurants on busy plazas and not wanting to be a part of that scene, my sister and I found this little treasure whilst on our way to the Old Town.

Wow!!! Food was melt in your mouth good!!! We had a variety between us, fried goat cheese on salad, snails, fillet with olives, duck liver with cherry sauce, cod and scallops. We were staying in the neighborhood and picked it off of reviews. With almost five stars we were the only ones there, we were very surprised. Felt like we... More
