Business meeting here over lunch. Old world style with great ambience. Friendly attentive staff and a decent choice of lunch options. Will return.

What a lovely Thai spiced Pumpkin Ravioli perfectly matched with the suggested Picpoul du Pinet. We will be back! My husband had the burger and loved it, Malbec for him. All well cooked and well received.
