We really enjoyed the meal there. It's a small restaurant with only about 12-small tables and 3-people working. Set menu (no choice) but the food was tasty, well done and exceeded our expectations. Nice atmosphere with the service and place.

I had dinner at La Diva with a friend. There is no menu, you will get whatever the cook feels like, but they will ask you if there is anything you don't like or don't want to eat. The food was really good and portions...More
