Great menu, service was on point and the desserts were Super! Steak was cooked perfectly and the seafood we had was very fresh with remarkable sauces. Hoping to try the outside dining in the summer.

Best soup, sublime tuna steak, amazing deserts. BYOB, cozy and friendly, you must like a view of the kitchen because you can't avoid it; it's part of the charm.
