Visited with friends whilst on holiday. Very disappointed. The manager sits brooding like a spider on the corner table. Most unpleasant. Food expensive for what it is. Unimaginative. Wouldn't recommend this place at all. Must say though that the waitress was charming and deserves better!More

A great lunch spot with keen waiter (with a lovely smile) and a cook who knows his stuff.. he eats there as well, always a good sign. If you sit opposite the windows you can see the life of the town square.
