Went here to take my wife for a meal on her 50th. Great place. The food was lovely and the service was great. The location in the cave is quite unique. Very unassuming on the outside we walked past once.

Best cheese fondue I've ever had. Lovely atmosphere, really unique restaurant setting with great service. Even though our order wasn't taken correctly, they were apologetic and sorted it out. Would definitely return
