Dined here with 2 others and we all reached the same conclusion that although the quantities were "ski-sized", the quality left something to be desired. Moreover, the cost was rather exaggerated. We did not appreciate that when you order a somewhat dry, pan fried, breaded veal escalope (that was the only item on the plate) priced at 25 Euros, the accompanying simple pasta with an uninspiring tomato sauce would be ridiculously charged an extra at 12 Euros making the total dish 37 Euros !!! This sort of policy indicates the philosophy of the patrons, namely gouge the clients.
The service was very good, but the lighting was too dark, to the extent that we had to use the light of our mobile phone to read the menu and the wine card.
Our finding is that this place is "tourist trap" and future visitors should bear in mind the phrase "buyer beware".
Sadly, we cannot recommend this restaurant.
