Highly would recommend visiting the restaurant. Everything is delicious, but my favorite dish is the "Another lettuce salad" with the labaneh focaccia. It's open on Saturdays and the price range is around 20-25 euros per person (not including the dessert).

Food was great; wait staff helpful; atmosphere casual and comfortable. I really appreciated the English menu! The waitress spoke English and made us feel right at home. Her suggestions were quite helpful.
