Intimate dining experience. Friendly attentive chef. Found the restaurant had 'changed hands' since we last visited. Glad we went and would definately go back and recommend

Small restaurant with great service. Food was excellent, meat just right and suggestion of red wine from Tenerife a surprise, but right for us.

We've had the duck, which was dry and tasteless. But the worst was that it was for one reason or another accompanied by a salad -which is strange- that had a dressing that tasted like massage-oil. This taste overwhelmed everything. In overall the food is overpriced.

I was here a couple of years ago and found the menu very different and interesting, so I booked again. I think that there has been a change of ownership as this time the menu was fairly standard, with the exception of some bark chocolate on my prawns! The restaurant is OK, but I woudl not go out of my... More

The restaurant is not too easy to find, but well worth the search. This is the second year we ate here and it was a wonderful meal. Staff are efficient and friendly and the food superb. The only problem is it's size, which means it is highly reccomended that you book in advance

It's all 5 stars from us. This has to be one of the best restaurants on the island, everything about the evening was perfect. It was the little touches that made it even more special like the complementary aperitifs for which I won't spoil the surprise. We had the fillet steak for main course which was fantastic with beautiful presentation.... More

We were a group of 9, and the kitchen was tiny, so we might have blown its capacity. The food was unimpressive for the price, and the chicken was raw, not just pink. Sadly this beautiful place with the cute waitress was a let down.

We had our dinner a bit early, so it was quiet and calm no problem to get a table in this rather small restaurant. We had an awesome meal, we had a dish from the specialty`s of the day. It was some game meat, i think it was deer. I had a glass of beer to drink, and my girlfriend... More

We were twice during our stay: liked so much first time so went again. We had carpaccio as an appetizer. The plate looked great: combination of thin slices of fish topped with vegetables, salads, brown sauce, chocolate and something else.. Very delicious. We also ordered foie gras. Usually, you expect a big plate with tiny piece on it. But we... More
