We had dinner. Welcome was not great but afterwards, service was good. Nice restaurant, beautiful place. Food was delicious. Not that much choice on the menu but worth the money. Good choice of wines.

If you are after a gastronomy experience, this is the place. The cuisine is traditional with the chef’s twist. Presentation, service and overall setting is just perfect. The chef came to say hello, it was nice to be able to let him know what a...More
