Second time here in two years and has just such a relaxed atmosphere - so expect to share your table with a neighbourhood cat or two and a 90% local clientele. Food is excellent and really good value as are the wines and drinks. Plus...great bread, oil and nibbles with the drinks. If I lived locally am sure I'd be here at least once a week too (or more!).More

My family and I had the opportunity of having breakfast a couple of days. The food is great and the service even better. Definitely a place to relax and spend great time with mellow music. Very professional cuisine

Hi guys! If you’re sensitive to gluten like me, you can suppress your dessert crisis with Susam’s chocolate cake without flour and sugar. But don’t forget to try Susam’s burger first with crispy French fries 😋🍔🍟

A very nice and calm/relaxing cafe. Very good English speaking and also in a fantastic location. If you’re in the area and have time then I’d suggest coming here to visit. Prices are reasonable.

Very Cozy place! We drink there after dinner, so we just ordered salmon salad and a piece of lemon cheese cake. The food is excellent and the service is great. The decoration and atmosphere are fantastic! Love everything in this cafe!

The place is very cosy. Good- perfect. Fresh and easy. My steak was so nice with lovely side rucola salad. Service - cream de la cream. People working there are super professional jet easy going. So so nice....
