We were recommended to try this place and were accommodated at the last minute. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was lovely. It was a nice meal in very pleasant surroundings, a place where the locals ate.

A pharmacist casually recommended this place to us for lunch. We got lucky! Friendly service, good food quality and lovely ambience. I can’t say anything negative about it...even the bathrooms were pretty! PS the red pasta sauce was simple and wonderful!

If you are looking for a relaxing breakfast or lunch with good meal and a relaxing ambient, this is the place. Cozy and green for all the varieties of plants around the tables in the garden, you can also find a nice flower shop nearby....More
