Very good food but hard to visit as it is small and always crowded. My partner is hard of hearing and all he can hear are the kitchen sounds and people talking not me...so we won't go again

Love the owners, love that kids can come to a gourmet restaurant, and of course LOVE the food. Yes, some complain about the price, but really you're paying for sustainable, local, and very flavorful food and beverages.

Loved our meal here. Had the salmon and the meatloaf. Both were packed with flavor. Asked the waitress whether to have the meatloaf of the nettle gnocchi. She surprised me by choosing the meatloaf. I was very pleased with her decision. The creme brûlée of the day was lavender lemon vanilla. Delicious! Highly recommend you give it a try when... More

Excellent food and service-the gnocchi and nettles were delicious! My local halibut and roasted potatoes were perfectly cooked.

This place is *tiny*! It was quite early on a Friday night, and although some of the 12 or so tables were empty, perhaps they were reserved (all the tables filled up while I was there). The only seating I was offered was the *very* narrow edge of a wooden counter, where it would have been difficult to place a... More

Not sure of where to have dinner, we found this place on trip advisor. It was outstanding from start to finish. The nettle appetizer was an imaginative and satisfying combination of greens and cheese. I had the steak, perfectly done. My partner had the duck, also done, a bit pink and tender. Wonderful. We finished with an imaginative berry panna... More

I had the mussels as a starter and the last was divine, it was like tasting the sea (in a very nice way). We had the warm cabbage salad as another starter, this was outstanding. The portions were more than adequate.

We initially stopped in for the wood fired pizza, but unfortunately we were too early! At first we felt disappointed, but we were very pleasantly surprised with a unique and predominantly home made lunch menu!!!! The food was fresh, tasty and nicely plated. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful when trying to decide just what to order. The... More
