Good service, Good food, Great wine in the bottom of a castle. Make sure you get up to the top of the tower for sunset. Great view of the valley and town below.

A very pleasant restaurant in an historic surrounding. Starters - partridge pate (brilliant); scrambled eggs with asparagus, scallop and port (tasty). Both mad the main course of pork fillet with risotto which was excellent.
