The place is very beautiful, and the food was so delicious, that we came here to eat dinner 3 days in a row. The traditional soups and the pies (potatoes, salty cheese, cabbage) were delicious.

DO NOT RESERVED ON INTERNET. They do not bother even to check if someone made an reservation. We stay 2 and half hour in restaurant but we waited almost 2 hour the food. Good food but nothing special beside the PRICE wich was very high.
