Elk & deer stew was to die for. Oven roasted pumpkin was slightly too tough, 2 mins longer in the oven would have been better, but still great taste with the barley. Desserts also great, and nice cosy atmosphere.

What a fabulous find! This small restaurant is located in a cellar and decorated with vintage items creating a cosy, homely atmosphere. The staff were lovely, and the food was delicious and well priced. I would highly recommend eating here.

The staff is super friendly. Rich in atmosphere is peaceful and nice. Portions are hearty. We took meat casserole. Maybe meat should have been simmered a little bit longer, it were still better. My husband didn't like garlic in the casserole.

The cafe was quite empty that's why we decide to stay here. It was very hard to make choice due to quite short menu with not clear description. The food was quite good (at least tomoato soup), but the service was quite poor. We spent...More
