Having already tried their pasta (it was tasty, but nothing too spectacular), this time I opted for meat and ordered a beef steak, medium. It turned out to be a great decision. It was cooked to tender perfection; just the right amount of pink in the middle, each bite melting in my mouth. It was nicely complimented by mixed leafy greens, with a touch of aceto balsamico. I didn't really have room for desert, so I only had a cup of coffee, which was quite delicious. As for the venue, the decor is unintrusive, however, it's lacking "soul", the staff is professional and the overall feeling is positive, but I really recommend a revision of the music being played.

The restaurant has a relaxed vibe with modern decor, inside and conservatory type glass extension.

Staff were very pleasant and quick, the food was great!

Would recommend a repeat visit as the steak looked good.

Didn't know what to expect. Location certainly not in town center, but well worth s few minutes by Uber or taxi. Food was delicious, and desert amazing, one of the best crepes I ever had in my life.

Had a business lunch in the private room. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had variety of appetizers amongst which the buffalo mozzarella with tomato jelly and fried rocket was top. My entree was confit of beef cheeks with bread dumplings stuffed with pancetta. The desert was perfectly executed chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream. No time for photos.
Highly recommended.

Very nice food, fast service and interesting interior design; stylish but not too fancy. Reasonable prices. Nice pasta. Lots of parking outside. Try Skaramuco Plavac, excellent red wine.
