This restaurant is located in a -1 floor, very nicely decorated. The set menu offered various choices for appetizer, main dish and dessert. All delicious. The reasonable price also included a bottle of wine. Great service also.

We loved this place. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable about food and wine. The tomatoes were perfect with a little crushed garlic and olive oil. The asparagus starter was fantastic! Our mains were lovely as well.
