It's a very unique place in a little quiet village, which used to be the former village school. The garden is just beautiful and so is their cuisine. The service is attentive and very friendly. We have been eating there 3 times the last 4...More

They do open Friday nights but they close from late Autumn til Spring. So I'm not sure when they start for this year. A table in the open is best..... But regardless the food is wonderful! Enjoy
