Lovely lunch, the grilled trout was cooked to perfection with crispy skin, and we had a nice glass of house wine sat out on the sunny terrace. Reasonably priced for the quality

Good place to pause after good walks in the region. Take time to eat trouts and listen to good music. Appreciated price value. Somewhat popular but good service overall.

Food wasn't good. Ordered a sandwich and some spaghetti. Also a tomato sauce. All three not good. Wasn't able to finish my meal. Location is nice, but too cold during autumn. Sad.

While having a car break down dealt with, we wandered into this place for lunch and to relax after dealing with mechanics and what not. Firstly, it is in a nice setting, off the road and quite peaceful. The staff were courteous, but not that...More
