We had one of the best meals at this restaurant! The atmosphere was really nice and cozy. It was getting a bit crowded after 7:00pm, so making a reservation might be a good idea. I am sure it is less crowded if you arrive early....More

A restaurant I can perfectly recommend. Smiling service, very delicious food with big portions. The restaurant is in an historic old house that has been very thoughtfully and beautifully restored. You truly get the sense of going back in time when you enter.
