My Irish colleague from Dublin advised this restaurant. And he was right. Small restaurant with nice atmosphere and perfect dishes. I tried the beer-battered cod with chips, while the others had a lamb stew. Both mains from the early bird menu were good and tastefull. The best 'fish and chips' I had (so far). And even it is an extra 4 euro surcharge, pamper yourself with the cheeseboard, because they have excellent Cheddar cheese. To complete this menu, allow yourself at least one glass of Fleurie from the Beaujolais district in French Rhône valley (11 euro). And finally, do not forget to order an espresso. Probably the best I had this year. In total, I had to pay about 40 euro. A fair price for such a good menu!

Situated underground in a vaulted celar, the atmosphere is intimate and perfect for conversation. Rich, flavorsome dishes, complemented by a well chosen wine list. Quite a hidden place, look for the small sign at the top of the stairway.

Ate there last night. Just had to post a review as we were so impressed by the food! They have a fantastic wine list too. The only slight down side is they are still trying to fix some minor teething problems with the heating system outside in the covered terrace where a lot of the tables are. But if you bring your jacket you will be fine outside. It's a really excellent place! We will be back!

Isabel's presents an interesting menu that changes regularly - the food is beautifully presented and cooked.
I had previously had lunch there (which was great) but I've just tried the dinner menu this weekend & had a top class dining experience.
Food options on the night included octopus, beef cheeks, salmon, pork & steak - all done with a twist of cheffy magic. Food is deliciously light - no excessive use of butter & cream in the kitchen.
In addition to the first rate food - The wine menu is extensive.
Put this place onto your to do list.
( ps - they make great chips !)

Went for an intimate anniversary dinner. Intimate is the appropriate word as there is not too much space between tables but thankfully there were not too many people there. Slow roasted pork is simply delicious, service was attentive without being cloying, wine list is very extensive if a bit on the pricey side, atmosphere is relaxing. Overall, very enjoyable and would recommend.
