We had a great dinner with fresh local vegetables, interesting entrees and good wines. Gabbie makes all work with friendly service. Priced fairly and balanced presentation we can easily recommend this place for dinner with the many regulars customers at this cozy spot.

While I realize this is an old building, the restaurant is a bit tired. With that being said, the service was very good and the food was plentiful and pretty decent.

We stopped here for a drink and dessert. We sat inside in the bar and ordered. Service was good and the Spanish coffee and chocolate cake were both yummy! Will try dinner next time!
