I love this place, the good was really tasty and the service very friendly. While waiting we were offered complementary snacks (button mushrooms stuffed with cheese) and they were delicious. I had deer ravioli which was excellent. Going back soon

We were invited there for dinner. Was impressed by most of what I ate there. Good service. Restaurant is located in an actual wooden home that has been fixed up. Worth checking out!

It is a while since I ate such excellent food all presented without fuss, all beautifully cooked and aesthetically presented. Escargot presented on a timber board surrounded by some tasty green leaves, perch grilled to perfection with just the right amount of delicious vegetables, an amazing pear/ice cream dessert. It was simply perfect. I hope I can make it back.
