This snug restaurant in the old city is well worth a visit. On a freezing winter day it was warm and inviting. Its old-style decor and soft lighting is reminiscent of a bygone age and, as such, fits well with the locality.
The menu offers a reasonable range of options and makes much of local specialities. The quality of the dishes is very good indeed, well cooked dishes with lots of flavour and obvious attention to detail. Whilst it is a little 'cheffy' this is no bad thing as good local produce is given the right kind of attention. A starter of mussel soup is probably the most delicate dish I've ever tasted - exceptional cooking and lots of skill. Each dish, though, looks and tastes as though it has been cared about and thought through. The fact that the owner was inspired by her own family experience of eating and cooking is significant - and the experience is evident.
Service is quite slow but deliberately so. You certainly don't feel the pressure of another sitting at your table. The impression given is of time allowed for a good meal that is deserving of attention, without being pretentious and smug.
Maybe there could be more wines available by the glass but this is not a major issue.
I would recommend this restaurant strongly if you're looking for a longish meal of excellent quality in a very convivial environment - and close to the station too
