I visited with a colleague as I was staying just across the road. Very good food and the service was also good. It is a fairly small restaurant with a great atmosphere. Would recommend

We had a reservation and arrived to a full restaurant on a busy Saturday night. The food was excellent, service was good and the wine list reasonably priced. In short, everything to like.

We just happened upon this restaurant on a Sunday night. We had a delicious meal of appetizers, salad and a bottle of wine. Everything was delicious. Calamari was different, slightly spicy but delicious. Quiet environment where you can converse. Will definitely go again.
