this place is so hidden- it looks like a great place to have an intimate meal and enjoy the privacy of the location- it's been closed evry time i went there but it is beautiful place.

We ate here recently, but can’t remember anything about our meal. Probably just as well, since food like that is best forgotten. Totally overrated... and to top it all off, the musician who was supposed to play never showed up!
