If you love cheese, this is your place. Cheeses from many different countries, very wide choice. Most dishes have cheese also (some options without it, if you happen to go with strange people who don't like cheese). Well chosen wine list at very good prices....More

Excellent cheese restaurant outside the city center, a bit hidden and still full. Food is delicious, tried a number of entries, main courses and desserts and all were very tasty and well prepared. Staff is great, attentive and nice but not overwhelming. Would definitely recommend.
