I absolutely loved my venison with spinach and blue cheese. Others round the table loved their wild boar and pork. Quality meal with great ambience and staff. English menu and central location. Chardonnay was very exceptional too. Highly recommended!

Good choice of fish and meat main courses, variety of first courses and the usual snacks. Efficient service, and quite smart with prices only marginally higher than average. An enjoyable meal but not outstanding.

Tasty food and reasonable prices! We sat outside as the weather was nice and had various plates to try, such as the zucchini pancakes, the herring, the pistachio filled chicken and then pork tenderloin. Left happy and full!
