Food at this restaurant is good. However they are one of the few restaurants that serve only red but no white house wine. The cost of the wines are prohibitive. The restaurant is small and the booths are hard to get into.

The atmosphere is great and the staff are friendly and professional. I found the food somewhat wanting in terms of being flavourful and interesting but the people I dined with were pleased with their meals.

Sorry you didn't like your chicken breast. I would like to point out that the menu does describe the sauce as roasted red pepper and smoked paprika "piperanade"; a Spanish style sweet and sour pepper condiment. Quite heavily seasoned with salt, sugar, red wine vinegar...More
