No fancy setting but truly excellent choice, with first class regional cuisine. A big effort is made with dish presentation. The menus are truly excellent value for money starting at 20 Euros for 3 dishes.

On a cold dark night in late March we were searching for this restaurant, and nearly missed it. It is tucked away behind its' own car park which in turn is bordered by a hedge, so easy to miss. However once inside there's no further...More

I can't remember about the set menu, but the prices are reasonable for me. By that I mean that a 3 course Dinner for four adults with drinks was around 130 euro.
