This is a beautiful little restaurant. It is small and run by the owner who is chef, waiter and friend himself. Very cosy and fantastic food all home cooked in his open kitchen.

This is a truly magical restaurant, small (so get there early) that serves great food in a great location. Owner is very friendly and helpful. I have been many times and am always impressed with the quality and cleanliness of this perfect bijou restaurant.

It was a really nice surprise to find this place. We had a grilled sea bass which was really nice, the owner speaks English and is willing to help you chose or recommend what to eat. Their apple pie with caramel was absolutely delicious! Good...More
