Warm welcome with complimentary glass of ‘eldersecco’. Garden room abundant with greenery, beautifully lit and atmospheric, and acoustic musician was an unexpected bonus. Food and wine outstanding and great value, staff super-helpful and charming. Highly recommend.

The restaurant was fully booked on a wet Tuesday (the most boring night of the week). One of our party has a temporary hard of hearing problem, but the staff managed to find us a quiet table away from the live music. Lovely warm welcome...More

Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
