Visited with friends on a Saturday. Lovely courtyard setting and food was well presented and tasty. Booked a table for 20:15 finally got seated at 20:50 and got food at 21:50. They gave us a coffee on the house but it doesn't excuse slow service.

Went to this place after seeing it recommended in Lonely Planet and rated high on trip advisor. Felt like we had the cloak of invisibility when we walked in. Finally got attention of staff and were seated then neglected for 10 minutes. I then asked...More

Excellent goat's cheese salad that included an array of everything - totally delicious. As a bit of a Belgian beer novice I also received excellent advice on what to order. English menus provided. A lovely experience all round.
