What a great experience More than a cafe. Food offerings and preps on different dishes screams 5 star restaurant. We had the swordfish and tuna. Outstanding. Bean cakes were a unique starter. Wines and beers were excellent quality with a decent price point.

Interesting dishes, healthy foods with that special touch. Visited recently as part of a girls' night out- we'll be back soon! This place has been around for years, but has a great up to date menu with plenty of choices for all tastes.
