We discovered this restaurant, near to where we were staying and did not leave. Booking a table for all remaining nights. The venue was clean and well decorated and even had a area where dogs could come in, this made life very easy for us....More

Make sure you book in advance especially in high season. Always a good choice of traditional options along with a wider menu list. Cooked and presented to a high standard and not kept waiting. Thoroughly recommended.
