This is a lovely place when you just want a small meal and a glass of good wine, but also scores for those hungry types, too. Lovely atmosphere, fairly good service, nicely prepared dishes, and excellent wine list.

I came there with my clients, and I must say it was a very nice place to eat. Nothing super posh, but still nice The selection of cocktails was good as well as the rib-eye stake finished me (in the best positive way possible).
