Gorgeous food at great price! Visited as a couple during midweek and it wasn’t too busy when we first arrived (about 19:00). Service was very attentive, and we will definitely be back! Speaking of which, we’ve reserved a table for this coming week :)

Mouthwatering beef cajun skewers! Juicy tender flavoursome rump steak, well cooked halloumi. Meat was cooked to literal perfection, wow! Calamari was a little too fishy this time. Quiet Monday night, frosty and freezing outside, open fire blazing into the room, perfect setting. Waiter had a...More
