Lovely food, set menu for 10.95 euro, 4 courses plus a drink of either beer, wine or a soft drink, well worth a visit if your in the area. Very helpful staff, food cooked to perfection.

Great experience to cook your own steak on a stone. The cut of meat was to notch. Really enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend.
