Because of good tripadvisor recommendations we decided to visit this restaurant. We ordered a fish plate with some appetizers. Food was fresh and tasteful, nothing very special but very nice atmosphere. Lot of cats in the small yard. Not too expensive.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our AirBnB host and we loved it. It's a family run restaurant with a really friendly atmosphere. There were lots of veggie options and enough choices for a vegan, too. Excellent and cheap house wine too.
