Dinner at this restaurant was very nice. Meals are huge and we all struggled to get through. I had the pizza which is really a size for 2 people. Service was good.

A charming café on the Strand. We easily shared a delicious salad and wonderful pizza for a memorable lunch. Portions are large; service is terrific. Nice place for a leisurely meal and people watching. Just amazing flavors from a talented kitchen!
