It is pretty small place located in the neighbor. Small portion food that taste just ok (not great). Friendly waitress checks if everything ok a lot. Good place to go if you want to be relaxed in the cozy atmosphere.

A lovely evening - romantic atmosphere, nice prix fixe menu on Tuesdays, excellent attentive service. My boyfriend would have liked a larger serving - but the concept and pricing are small plate. I look forward to a return visit!

The food here is very good. The owner is a sommelier and hand picks all of the wines they serve. Most you will not have heard of but he is very good at helping you decide and pick a great bottle in your price range....More
