The menu is small, but the food was delicious, and the owner came out and talked with us for a while, then he and a woman who also worked there sang us a couple of songs. They're good musicians and good hosts!

Visited this restaurant with friends while on a business trip. The food was excellent and the music was getting started as we left. This is one of those small local gems that you hope to find when traveling.
