Me and my other half had the Valentine's deal. 4 courses and bottle of wine for €55 for the two of us. My god we really enjoyed it! The food was amazing and lovely atmosphere. Our server Andrea was a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely return!

Tried breakfast here as remembered it had good food years back. Wouldn't be in any major hurry to go back, at best average.
