Food is excellent but a small room and can feel crowded. Great choice and friendly staff. Large portion sizes and good selection.

Small restaurant but well worth the effort to ensure booking a table. My wife and I both had veal for main course, plenty of meat unlike many places. The chef made a special sauce for my wife and then came out to check all was okay. .well worth a visit.

Two previous visits were very enjoyable and food excellent. This visit on Thursday when owners were there was exceptional, he and his staff made our evening very special, the rib eye was one of the best l have had. Altogether a worthwhile good value experience in lovely surroundings.

This is a very small, quaint restaurant next to the lake at newmillerdam. Food is good, very tasty. Upon arrival it was empty & we had to make the first 'hello', other than that the staff were polite & friendly. Will go back.
