I went here for dinner one evening after work with some friends without having planned it ahead, and we found the place very busy with a large group in the main restaurant room, but there was space for us on the patio at the back.

We went after work, warm welcome, delicious food, good service. I especially like the French fries there, and the salad. We also ordered a beef steak on a hot stone, very interesting.

It's hard to find vegetarian on menus, and, if you do find it, it's often so heavy and full of cheese. It was a pleasant surprise to get one that was light and tasty. It's made on the spot, so you have to wait for some 15 minutes or so. Very friendly service, too! I can see myself becoming a... More

Since I work near this place, I visit here often with my colleagues and friends.. And every time I go, I get a wonderful feeling of visiting a small village cafe with warm, friendly staff and good food. The quantity served is also good. You get to see a lot of regulars here coming in groups and enjoying their evenings!... More

We enjoyed the restaurant on a balmy summer night. The hospitality was warm and welcoming, but the food was average. Nothing special, but will work if it is the only place open. A nice plus, is the patio out back in cool summer weather.

Unique dishes that were well prepared and priced reasonably. We were very pleased with our dining experience here. Sat out on the back terrace and enjoyed a wonderful summer evening with good food in pleasant surroundings.
