We had a great evening with friends with good wine and a mix of traditional and contemporary food. Everyone in our group was satisfied with the portions and the taste. We considered it really good value for money! The atmosphere was comfortable with a rustic touch.

I have heard many great things about this place from many different people, so I has very disappointed to go and have a meal that was unbearably salty, and uneatable. And I like salt. A lot.
