Two huge millstones greet you when you enter this charming restaurant, created inside of a functioning grain mill, which is powered by the river below. Ask the waiters to open the back door and you can walk to the river itself and see the flowing waters up close. On your way back upstairs, catch a glimpse of the huge water powered wheels tucked below the restaurant. The self guided tour is a great activity while you wait for your food. The food is excellent. The meats are salted and cured in the sun. Great authentic local cuisine at inexpensive prices. All inside of a great atmosphere by the river. Very unique place.
