We found this delightful restaurant for lunch that had delicious food, fantastic service and not overly expensive. My daughter ordered spaghetti carbonara that came with mushrooms, she hates mushrooms! The waiter could see there was a problem and offered to change the dish for something else so in no time at all some more pasta was cooked with just cheese.... More

We decided to try this place having read all the fantastic reviews about this place. And they were not wrong.

We shared the goat cheese and meat platter to start followed by the veal tenderloin... More

The staff are so friendly, you really feel welcome in this place. The terrace is not very big, only 6-7 tables, so it it is rather intimate and cosy. And the view is astonishing ! The dishes were delicate, and they apparently aim to use much local ingredients in their food. Price level is in the middle, not overpriced, but... More

We were lucky to get a table on the terrace as we hadn't booked, fabulous views and very attentive service. We drank the house white wine which was excellent. For starters we ordered prawns pil pil, King clip and croquettes to share and they were all delicious. For mains we enjoyed the prawn and scallop bruschetta , which was so... More
