Elegant but traditional decor in the heart of the old town. The food and wine were excellent and the service very good. Mainly full of locals and we managed to overcome the language problems. Very good value.

We visited after reading Tripadvisor reviews. They were short staffed. We got our starters and main courses at different times so I had nearly finished mine by the time my partners arrived. Starters were pricey but tasty. The main course fish dishes were tasteless and...More
