The food is excellent. Portions are small. The service was inattentive. Very noisy with a group upstairs. I think they're trying too hard to be the coolest place in town.

Unique menu, casual atmosphere. We ate outside on the patio, right on the street. It was a bit buggy, but that's not the restaurant's fault. Enjoyed our dinner, water was cool.

Hi, hubertstubert. What would you like to know about this restaurant? Do you serve trout and salt ham rolled and cooked together? I saw it on tv but it's not on your menu.

Yes, there is plenty of suitable seating, especially outside, but do let the staff know when you make your reservation so they can seat you away from the live music or loud groups.
