But no English actually made the place better in my mind. Food and wine and service was perfect and we liked the place. It was a bit exotic not having English, German or Swedish menus and personnel speaking the languages. I think we were the...More

Although English was a little bit a problem, they were so nice that we didn’t struggle. Local cuisine was very good. Price is ok. And ambiance is very cozy. We had a good time.

The restaurant appears clean and quiet, ideal for a nice evening with your partner. The personnel is young and professional: let you feel welcome. The food is well cooked and nicely presented. Very satisfying. Highly recommended.

Very nice restaurant, quite far away from center but worth the travel. Tasty and with nice surprice at the bill (free tipical cake take away).
