A quaint romantic restaurant with a excellent food. They bring you things to eat in between courses. Staff is great. Everything we ate was delicious. Great for couples and special occasions. Will definitely be back.

I was not paying but think they offer a tasting menu for a set amount also 3 courses from a la carte for set amount. I expect you could just choose one course from a la carte.
