The atmosphere is warm and the food is really good with a wholesomeness. I took my family of hungry men and they appreciated the ample portions. The wine selection is wide and assistance from the waiter was appreciated.

Superficially good but just misses. Good lunch venue, could be either a cafe or wine bar, food artistically presented but just missed. The jerusalam artichoke appealed as a small dish but the taste lacked any taste or flavour. The restaurant is closing partly because of...More
