Proper cooking up in the mountains! A friend has a place nearby and is his local. Beautiful home cooked local food, real flavour and a nice sense of community and passion from the staff here. Would recommend any of the meat dishes and listen up for the specials!

It was a great local restaurant. I thought the liver and some of the other items in the starter plate were a little rough, although the chorizo was good.... More
