A very cosi place to eat, with a good variety of dishes. Although mostly meat, wich is the one i would recommend rather than fish. The site has very nice views and a good service. I greatly recommend this place to eat once and again.

Make sure you visit this great Restaurant situated overlooking the lakes. Great food which also catered for our vegan daughter! I particularly loved their salads and garlic bread (which is more like a loaf!) A great choice for both lunch and dinner!

Good views and very busy. Deadly slow service. We preferred Al Kiosko just down the road which is friendlier and cheaper.
