We made a dinner reservation for a Saturday in late May. We had the cuttlefish ravioli appetizer, duck breast as our mains, and the chocolate mousse Napolean. The ravioli was very delicious while the duck breast was a bit dry. The chocolate mousse was the...More

My wife and I heard of this restaurant before our trip and made reservations 2 weeks ahead by email. It was fortunate that we had because the restaurant is very small with perhaps 10-12 tables - and all but ours were full. Although the restaurant...More
