With a large group we enjoyed a perfect diner. A set menu, but with a choice of 4 different dishes. Super meat, very nice fish, great starters and good wine at very reasonable prices.

My wife and I had dinner here and it was superb. The food is top notch, the service very good, and the atmosphere charming. Do make a reservation as this place is popular and we saw several people with no reservation turned away.
